What happened to Washington’s pass rush in Week 6?
After racking up six sacks in the last two weeks, the Washington Redskins couldn't get to New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick even just one time in their 34-20 Week 6 loss.
Fitzpatrick remained nearly untouched — the Redskins finished with no sacks an they barely got any pressure on the quarterback all game. As a result, the Jets were able to convert 7 of 14 third downs and rack up 253 yards passing.
The Redskins entered Week 6 with 11 sacks on the season, and according to Pro Football Focus, they had 88 combined sacks, quarterback hits and quarterback hurries. In Week 6, the Jets shut them down with an offensive line that had been shaky at times prior to this week.
The Redskins will need to once again find their pass rush and run defense if they want to get back into the win column going forward.
