The Redskins will field a younger and more athletic unit than in years past and those changes to the roster have some fans excited about the future.
Washington must put it all together quickly to give their historical fan base a reason to be optimistic about the upcoming regular season that is less than three weeks away.
Last week in their preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, the Redskins didn’t show much in their 30-10 defeat.
The Bengals come into the game having lost their preseason opener on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 38-17.
The Bengals lead the all-time preseason series against the Redskins, 5-3-1. Cincinnati also leads the all-time regular-season series over Washington, 5-4-1.
In the last preseason meeting between Washington and Cincinnati on Aug. 27, 2017, the Bengals defeated the Redskins 23-17.
