Washington is still essentially playing with a rookie at quarterback, and the business model for first-year coach Ron Rivera is to pound the rock and let the defense win games. That’s a tough position to leverage in a league that thrives by exploding the scoreboard with video-game passing numbers.

Upset watch: Young teams rarely make noise on the road, but a defensive line with five first-round picks, including No. 2 overall selection Chase Young, is going to put a charge in teams that can’t protect the quarterback. Enter the Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murray, who’ll be running for his life again unless the ragtag front five magically improves.

Longshot wager: Do we really believe in the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles so much that the NFC East couldn’t be claimed by a longshot? Let’s say no. The Redskins are worth a sniff at +2200 to win the East considering the delta between this team and the favorites — Dallas is -110, and the Eagles are +115.
