Every game is important in this division, and given the Bengals historic struggles with rookie QB’s this week’s matchup again the Redskins and Robert Griffin will be difficult. They will have to stay disciplined and generate as much pressure as possible with the front four.
Washington is hurting as well, losing starters Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker for the season will be a huge blow. This game will be the key to an 8-8 season compared to an 11-5 season. No matter if this game is on the road or not. This is one the Bengals should win if they are going to take the next step.
Zimmer is not going to stand for week to week public humiliation. Do you think he wants to validate the owners that passed up on him to become a head coach? I still think he will turn this defense around. Shakeups will be coming. This is a big week. Let’s hope the Bengals respond accordingly.
