Week 2: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Robert Griffin III was mauled by the Texans in Week One, taking three sacks for -26 yards and another 14 hits on the quarterback. Until he and the coaching staff starts minimizing the amount of abuse Griffin takes from opposing defensive players, Griffin will struggle to get in rhythm in this phase of the game. Despite the heavy hitting absorbed, Griffin managed 29/37 for 267 yards passing, but failed to hook up for a TD pass with any receiver. Niles Paul (in for Jordan Reed, currently nursing a hamstring injury) led the team in receiving with four targets for 4/86/0, followed by Pierre Garcon (12 targets for 10/77/0 receiving) and DeSean Jackson (nine for 8/62/0). Five other receivers managed one or two catches from Griffin, but the above three guys are the main targets in the passing game (at least until Reed gets back into the mix). On Wednesday Griffin said that Reed was out for Week Two, and coach Jay Gruden noted that Reed would be sidelined for 'some time'. The Jaguars' pass D managed five sacks for -47 yards against Nick Foles last week, so Griffin has another hard-charging, high-pressure unit on the horizon for Week Two. The Jaguars eventually coughed up 27/45 for 275 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception to Foles and company. Jacksonville was ranked 25th (tied) in the NFL averaging 248 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 TDs surrrendered vs. a mere 11 sacks (tied for 26th in the NFL) and only 31 sacks (tied for dead last) generated during 2013. Though they now lead the league in sacks after one game, this is still a flawed unit. Advantage, Washington, but they need to get more pass protection for Griffin or things could get ugly for him very quickly. Also, Alfred Morris and Roy Helu have a great rushing matchup so the team may not ask Griffin to throw the ball a whole lot this week.

Our View: Reed is out for this week, but he could return in time for a good matchup against the Eagles in Week 3. Check his practice participation. Chances are he'll be out again after being declared out earlier this week, but it's not certain.
