I know we like to get carried away with what happened in the first two weeks of NFL action, but don't forget how quickly things can change. They've already allowed as many 400-yard games as they did the entire 2011 season.
The Bengals did lose Jonathan Fanene and Frostee Rucker in the offseason. Then Thomas Howard tore his ACL in practice, crippling the front seven that caused so much disruption last season.
But they still have the same defensive coordinator in Mike Zimmer, and it's only a matter of time before the new parts sync up with the old. They may never be as good as the 2011 Cincinnati defense, but RG3 will have his work cut out for him.
On top of that, the Redskins are only ranked two spots better than Cincinnati, at 28th in total defense. They have given up 405 yards per game, along with an average of 31.5 points to their opponents.
Washington will have to continue to put up points, and Robert Griffin III will have to be a big part of that to put them over the top. There are a few things he can do to expose this Cincinnati defense, though.
