GRU­DEN

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Jay Gru­den was sharply crit­i­cal of his play-call­ing fol­low­ing Sun­day’s over­time loss to At­lanta. Gru­den’s cau­tion is un­der­stand­able, given that he has a turnover-prone quar­ter­back in Kirk Cousins and lacks his big-play wide re­ceiver in DeSean Jack­son, as well as his go-to tight end on third downs in Jor­dan Reed. But the prob­lem with dink­ing and dunk­ing down the field is that it al­most in­vites de­fenses to load up against the run. The Fal­cons did just that.
