While we've all become accustomed to the litany of laundry that referees have thrown on the field this preseason, it was the sloppy play of both teams that made this an underwhelming contest.
Looking at the quarterbacks, Cleveland's couldn't complete a pass, while Washington's were throwing to the wrong team. Throwing three interceptions on the night, the Redskins nearly wasted a dominant defensive performance.
Holding the Browns to just 286 yards, the Redskins should've turned this game into a blowout.
Be that as it may, there still were some positive takeaways. Washington's receivers dominated this contest, as the team amassed over 312 passing yards. Speaking to the team's depth here, explosive plays in the passing game were a staple of the offense throughout the game.
Building its defense around its front seven, Washington's defense played just as it was designed to. Pressuring the Browns' quarterbacks all game, the front seven masked the Redskins' secondary.
