If all we knew about Washington’s Week One opening was what we saw with a discerning peek during a box score, we competence consider they played flattering well.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III finished 29 of 37 of his passes, or 78.4 percent. And Washington gained 131 yards on a ground, on 23 carries. That looks like Washington was fit by a atmosphere and effective on a ground.

The existence is different: Washington mislaid 17-6. How peculiar is that? According to FootballPerspective.com, Washington was a first group in NFL history to measure fewer than 10 points while completing during slightest 75 percent of a passes and rushing for during slightest 125 yards. From 1940 until Sunday, there had been 615 teams in NFL story to rush for 125 yards with a 75 percent execution rate, and all 615 of them had scored during slightest 10 points in a diversion in that they reached those benchmarks.

The problem is that while Griffin was completing his passes, he wasn’t removing most yardage out of them. DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, who are ostensible to be means to widen a field, averaged 7.8 and 7.7 yards per catch, respectively. Griffin’s initial diversion of a deteriorate enclosed 4 opposite completions of 0 or disastrous yardage, and a six-yard benefit on a fourth-and-10, a nine-yard benefit on third-and-16, a three-yard benefit on second-and-19 and a three-yard benefit on second-and 8, not to discuss completions of one, two, 3 and 4 yards on 4 opposite first-and-10s.

Griffin now ranks second in a NFL in execution percentage, though he ranks 16th in yards per pass. Jay Gruden isn’t going to see many large plays out of his flitting diversion until he starts job for Griffin to chuck it downfield.
