Now, that doesn’t mean Lewis is excused from blame for the team’s 13-18-1 record over the past two seasons.

Their swoon, coupled with Cam Newton’s barking shoulder, has opened the door for Drew Brees and the 4-2 Saints, who decided Adrian Peterson was a round peg in a square hole and have won four in a row with defensive rookie-of-the-year candidate cornerback Marshon Lattimore upgrading a defense that is no longer a laughingstock.
Sure, that represents a small sample size, but McCoy has flashed whenever he’s played for the Redskins under Gruden, and that is why he could be the next QB1 to trot out of the tunnel.
