While this should be one of the better defenses Washington faces all year, I’m feeling a lot more confident going into this game than I was three weeks ago. Is that obvious? Yeah, sorry.
While I could see the Dawgs opening very slowly a month or so ago like versus Cal and OSU, they seem the last two weeks to have really realized the extent to which they can rely on the passing game even against opponents where defending that is their strength.
The matchup that I feel especially favors Washington though is their pass rush versus Cam Ward.
