LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — All Jonathan Allen does not mince words about Washington's defense failing to live up to expectations.
“The defense has been absolutely horrible this year,” he said.
Defense was supposed to be the biggest reason to believe Washington could repeat as NFC East champions, and it still might turn out to be.
But through the first two weeks of the season, the unit led by reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Chase Young has not lived up to lofty expectations.
New faces: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, CB William Jackson, WR Curtis Samuel, WR Adam Humphries, TE Sammis Reyes, LB Jamin Davis, OT Sam Cosmi, WR Dyami Brown, G Ereck Flowers, OT Charles Leno, EDGE Shaka Toney, DB Benjamin St-Juste, LS Camaron Cheeseman.

ASHBURN Call them "The Bama Boys." Or call them whatever you'd like. Just don't ask former Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne to give themselves a nickname that's just not how it's done.
