From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): At this point, Colt McCoy would be an upgrade for Jackson at quarterback. Of all of the passers Washington has trotted out there this year, Griffin has actually been the worst at getting the ball to Jackson deep. Hold and hope for a change.

Week 13: at Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Colt McCoy takes over for the indecisive Robert Griffin III as of Week 13. The 77 net yards passing during the loss at San Francisco sent Griffin back to the bench and elevated McCoy into the cat-bird seat again. McCoy's divisional victory over Dallas in Week 8 (25/30 for 299 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown) in which he enlivened DeSean Jackson (seven targets for 6/136/0 receiving) and Pierre Garcon (four for 4/47/0 receiving) looks pretty good compared to the limping pace each receiver has shown with Griffin in the saddle (five for 2/39/0 for Jackson last week; four for 3/34/0 for Garcon). We'll see if McCoy can continue to bring the mojo that beat Dallas during the final month of 2014 season. His NFL opportunity has arrived (again). The Colts' pass D is ranked 20th in the NFL averaging 249.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given out vs. nine interceptions (tied for 18th in the NFL) and 28 sacks (ninth in the NFL) generated to date. After Tom Brady hit them for 19/30 yielding 257 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown (zero sacks taken) two weeks ago, the Colts took apart Jacksonville's Blake Bortles (15/27 for 114 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -32 yards) last weekend. McCoy has been solid but unspectacular in his chances so far this year, while the Colts are so-so in this phase of the game - that sounds like a neutral matchup to us.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs TB (6 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

DeSean Jackson had his first sub-100 yard game since week 7. Jackson tied RB Roy Helu Jr. for team lead in targets but was unable to haul in his typical weekly big play. He almost delivered on a play where he split two defenders and raced into the endzone, but he was overthrown on a rocket pass from RG3 that fell five feet in front of him. Jackson did most of his damage catching passes near the LOS where he showed off his quickness weaving and cutting in space to help keep the chains moving. Jackson was shaken up in the third quarter after taking a hard shot to the head, but he was able to bounce up and continue playing.

2014 Week 12 vs SF (5 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)

DeSean Jackson's productive streak despite his flailing offense has come to a halt since Washington's week 10 bye. Jackson only caught two of his five targets, three of which were deep balls that never had a chance of being completed. One of Jackson's deep targets came off a trick play where Garcon took an end-around and launched a pass 40 yards down the field out of bounds somewhere near a double-covered Jackson. Jackson replaced Andre Roberts as the punt returner in the second half but never had the opportunity to run one back.
