“It’s something that we address, we talk about, we show, we try to create things in practice every single day,” Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry said. “But, bottom line, the object of defensive football is to tackle the man with the ball and get him down.

Browns’ running back Isaiah Crowell recorded four runs of at least 11 yards, compiling 120 yards on just 16 carries last Sunday. Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys

On Sunday, the Redskins face a more deceptive running back in the Ravens’ Terrance West. West is coming off of a career-best 113 yard effort against the Oakland Raiders, and the 25-year-old is brimming with confidence. Wholesale nfl jerseys

The Redskins also have a running back on a roll. Matt Jones is coming off of a career-high 22-carry effort in which he earned 122 yards and a touchdown against the Browns.
