The Bengals, however, have been knocked out versus heavyweights Dallas and New England while dropping decisions to Pittsburgh and Denver heading into Sunday’s tilt versus Washington.

Washington is bent on revenge after seeing its four-game winning streak halted by Detroit last week. Kirk Cousins passed for 301 yards and a touchdown in the 20-17 loss to the Lions, with Jamison Crowder stepping up in place of concussed tight end Jordan Reed as the second-year wideout recorded season highs in receptions (seven), targets (nine) and receiving yards (108).

Injuries and fumbles have plagued Matt Jones in both college and the NFL and the two continue to rear their ugly head with the second-year running back losing the ball for the eighth time in 20 career games last week.

Andy Dalton passed for 308 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-17 victory over the bumbling Browns last week, highlighted by a “Hail Mary” heave that A.J. Green (league-best 50 receptions) hauled in prior to halftime.

The Redskins have yielded just four touchdown passes in their last six games,
