Washington Football Team: Montez Sweat, it’s time to Put up your Dukes

Heading into the 2021 NFL regular season, Montez Sweat and Chase Young spoke of their lofty goals. The Washington Football Team duo is aiming to break the sack record for teammates in a single season.

Two games into the season, however, the dynamic edge rushers have accounted for two combined sacks. The former Mississippi State Bulldog has recorded both of them.

The perceived strength of Washington was supposed to be the defensive line. So far in 2021, the unit has not lived up to expectations. In the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, the defense pressured Justin Herbert on only 12% of his dropbacks.
