Washington Football Team 2021 Season Preview

Washington made the playoffs with a losing record in 2020, but it was knocked out in the Wild Card round. WFT’s 7-9 mark was good enough to eke out a divisional win in a very weak NFC East division, but another losing season won’t cut it for Rivera and company.

With last year’s heroic starter Alex Smith retiring, this could very well be veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s last stand. Washington added Fitzmagic this offseason, and whether the bearded veteran can improve an offense that ranked 30th overall in the NFL last year, averaging 317.3 yards and 20.9 points a game, remains to be seen.

“We looked at him as a guy that, ‘Okay, if we get all the pieces in place, can he manage and help develop and grow?’ ” Rivera said about Fitzpatrick, per The Washington Post.

“A lot like what Alex [Smith] did for us when he was on the field. Not only did he manage and help develop players, when we needed him to, he made plays for us. That’s what we’re looking for from Ryan — a guy that can manage, control, and help share some of his wisdom, some of his insight with our younger guys and help develop the team. And at the same time make big plays. And if it continues and things go well, who’s to say it doesn’t happen again next year?”

The Football Team had one of the best defenses in football last year despite a tepid offense, however. WFT allowed just 304.6 yards a game, which ranked second in the league, and the 20.6 points they surrendered per game was fourth-best in the NFL. Led by last year‘s defensive rookie of the year Chase Young, the Football Team had 47 sacks, 7.5 of which belonged to Young, who is ready to pounce in Year 2.

If Fitzpatrick can take care of the ball and put up more points this season than the team did in 2020, Washington could surprise some people.
