Defense still solid
The Redskins’ defense has been inconsistent at times, most recently giving up 38 points to the Atlanta Falcons. But this is a talented group, one capable of helping the Redskins stay in games. Overall, the Redskins rank seventh in total defense and ninth in points allowed per game (21.5). And they’ve remained relatively healthy. Cornerback Quinton Dunbar (shin) is the only defensive starter who has missed time. The Redskins have the pieces to bounce back from a disappointing loss.
