Washington Football Team May Have A Hard Schedule in the Second Half Of The Season.
Washington, D.C.- With all these new pieces coming together for the Washington Football Team, it looks like the biggest test for them will be the second half of the season.
It is very early to make any assumptions on where the Football Team may or may not be in standings in the second half of the season, but it looks like they could be potential playoff contenders. Coming off a disappointing playoff loss to Tampa Bay last season, Washington made a couple key moves to jump start their 2021 campaign.
Washington had to make a tough decision with letting Alex Smith go and picked up Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke in the off-season. Both quarterbacks have shown that they could extend plays with their legs and make the deep throws to their wide receivers under duress. On the receiving end, Washington looks very young and filled with vigor. Curtis Samuel, Dyami Brown, and Adam Humphries will probably battle it out in training camp and see who gets the primary role.
On the defensive end, WFT looks hungry with Chase Young leading the charge. Young had an immediate impact on the season in his first year and helped his team become a top 10 team on the defensive side of the ball.
If Washington comes out and plays decent ball, they could be looking at a 5-3 record in the first half of the season, but it gets tougher down the stretch. They have to play the Raiders, Seahawks, Cowboys, Bucs, and Giants just to name a few big games. If they are lucky, the Football Team could somehow shock a few of those teams if they close to perfect ball. Again, it's very early, but Washington has its work cut out for them.
