Preseason game 3 is upon us. This is the game where the team should finally show up to play and hopefully shows something.
They've been giving up over 400 yards a game so far. Buffalo has a pretty good offense that's been running up and down the field.
They gave up over 100 yards of rushing against Daniel Jones if that penalty away from the play hadn't happened taking the touchdown run off the books. The Bills have a scrambling QB that's better than Jones so that suggests he may hit 150 yards+ scrambling.
Vegas has them losing by 7 or more.
This is the NFL though so let's expect the unexpected. This will be the week the defensive line shows up to play and Chase gets 2 sacks, Sweat gets 1 and maybe a batted ball/forced fumble, Allen, Payne, Ioannidis and a mystery blitzer to be announced get at least 1.
That's a 4 sack day!!!!
Tim Settle gets off the bench and into the game for MORE than 8 snaps of the ball and makes his presence felt.
The rookie middle linebacker gets into the game for 75% of the snaps and finally gets a big play!!!
Gap control, it's not perfect yet but better and the defense only gives up 20 points total!!!!!!
We also get a defensive score for 7 points.
The offense, now that Heinicke finally gets a full week or better plus of practice with the starters and they have time to game plan steps up his game. Another 300+ game featuring more hurry up/no huddle.
Gibson is over 100 in combined yards, Scarey Terry tacks on another 100+ and Patterson finally gets a play or two without a penalty by an offensive lineman calling them back just to add a little excitement.
Special Teams misses another field goal but the punter has a pretty easy day of it.
Final score, Washington wins 31-20
