Monday Morning MD — Better Teams Deal with Injuries Better

We’re 10 weeks into the season, so, no team is healthy. Yet, it is the teams that can compensate for injuries that will prevail down the stretch. A good example of this is there were several teams with multiple starting offensive linemen out. Some went on to find ways to win, while others floundered.

The Redskins had four out of five starters injured with three not playing and two done for the year last week. Washington started a player they just signed off the street this week. Yet they found a way. They only put up 13 offensively generated points, but the defense stepped up big. The Buccaneers gained over 500 yards but were minus three on turnovers and with five red zone appearances, only came away with three points. Add to that two missed field goals and the Redskins prevailed by allowing a paltry three points.
