Comparing past records, Saints@Redskins

Last week's game was a toss-up and evidenced by the loss. This week, the numbers may reflect better.

Redskins have had a interesting pattern against NFC divisions they play in full each season.

Redskins vs NFC divisions since 2011
3-1, 2-2, 1-3, 0-4
From 2007-2010
3-1, 2-2, 1-3, 2-2

Basically the redskins have been one win worse or one win better each season. And going in a 3-2-1-2-3 pattern. Last year they took that all the way down to 0 which was a first since the re-alignment. They still had much of the Gibbs team in place in 2010 on top of playing the the mediocre NFC North. If the redskins were to win this week, they would break that pattern. There's the small offchance that because they have never been 0-4 until last year jumping to 2-2 might be possible. It happened with Tennessee. However, they could also go to 3 which is more possible numerically meaning they go from bottom to the top(for them). However it is highly imposible they win in Carolina.

Also, the redskins have never gone 2-0 at home against NFC South teams, they have gone 0-2, 1-1, 1-1, 0-2. Also in their four previous stints against the NFC South they have gone 1-3, 2-2, 1-3, 2-2.

Now here comes the combination of home games with Philadelphia against the two teams they play each year in the NFC since 2011.
1-3, 0-4, 3-1, 1-3
2-2 was jumped over and if Philadelphia were to win againt TB and we beat Washington, they go 3-1. It's happened before with other teams, but 4-0 makes more since and next year they could go 2-2(splitting against GB and Min each which makes sense). But this stuff can be read too much into and they don't always come out aligned. And TB could very well pull an upset in Philadelphia.

Now lets go with us.
Pretty much against any NFC division since 2006(where we went 0-4 in the abysmal 2005 season), basically all of Payton's tenure here, we have gone either 3-1 or 2-2. We went 2-2 back to back once in 2012-2013. We went 3-1 back to back in 2006-2007 and three straight times 2009-2011. Also we have had great success against NFC East division when we play them in full since re-alignment going 3-1, 3-1, 3-1, 2-2. The 2-2 in 2012 due to playing without Payton and dealing with BG. We already have gone 2-1 so the trend continues.

We have also never gone 0-2 on the road against NFC East teams, going 1-1, 2-0, 2-0, 1-1. Now like with redskins last year against the NFC West a first can always occur especially when a lot of players from one previou era are gone.

Now us and bucs on the road combined against NFC divisions since 2011.
2-2, 1-3, 0-4, 1-3
All things point to both of us winning.

One last thing before my conclusion is that we have had problems against the redskins. However, we have been in close games with them every single time since 2003. And, we have lost our last two home games, but won three of our last four road games. And the road game we did lose, we were up by two scores before choking the game away thanks to Brees throwing a interception and Reggie being Reggie. We own them in Washington, they own us in NO.

We beat the redskins, final conclusion.

I will always remember years ago when the saints and skins were on national TV and about half way through the game the announcement was made, "We are switching over to a more competitive game at this time" saints were getting man handled

Re: Comparing past records, Saints@Redskins

Redskins do hold a commanding 16-8 lead in the series and are 3-1 since 2006, but I still feel Ok picking the Saints in this one, even though the Vegas line has it at "crapshoot" even with the Saints being 1-3 on the road this season, which doesn't bode well for the Redskins, IMO, who are 3-1 at home and aren't getting even the consideration of being home-dogs.

Never really thought about how the Saints do on natural turf and don't want to overthink it, but what's the general consensus? Good/bad? Temps are gonna' be a balmy 60 degrees & sunny, perfect 'football sunday', .

Cousins has had really only two good games vs STL/Tampa and the Tampa game is the only one where he threw for more than 1 TD, so hope for the usual game-management mode from him & that things turn out alright, .

If it wasn't for the Redskins we would have never known of Bill Harris!
Maybe I will run into him in Landover Sunday.
