29. Washington Redskins

Not even an early lead over the New England Patriots made Washington Redskins feel confident in their chances of knocking off the defending Super Bowl champions on Sunday, because the team is that bad.

For whatever reason, the Redskins believed it would be wise to go with Colt McCoy under center at quarterback instead of allowing Dwayne Haskins to start, despite the rookie quarterback finishing with three interceptions last weekend.

The whole point of Washington using a first-round pick on the Ohio State product was to hopefully find a quarterback of the future to build the franchise around, and even though Haskins is still a work in progress, the rookie needs the experience.

Otherwise, the Redskins are only going to continue to hold Haskins and the offense back from reaching their true potential.

At 0-5, Washington will be in for another interesting week consisting of whether Jay Gruden is the right man at head coach for this team since no one expected things to be this rough in 2019.

As bad as it sounds, it may be easier for the Redskins to just get the process over with by firing Gruden after another embarrassing loss since Washington is quickly turning into one of the biggest laughing stocks across the NFL.
