Limit the Fal­cons’ pass­ing at­tack

The Washington Post Sunday - - NFL WEEK 9 -

The Fal­cons might be strug­gling, but QB Matt Ryan can still throw the ball. At­lanta is third in the NFL with an av­er­age of 318 pass­ing yards a game. The Redskins’ sec­ondary has strug­gled against the pass some this year.

Wash­ing­ton boosted its de­fen­sive back­field with Tues­day’s trade for S Ha Ha Clin­ton-Dix. He should help, but with CB Quin­ton Dun­bar still re­cov­er­ing from a nerve is­sue in his lower leg, it will be a chal­lenge for the Redskins to cover Fal­cons WR Julio Jones (812 yards re­ceiv­ing) as well as Calvin Ri­d­ley and Mo­hamad Sanu (716 yards com­bined).
