Matt Ryan is finding his way late here in the season making this defensive play a much less appealing play than it would have been a month ago. Washington will have their hands full with Roddy White, Steven Jackson, Harry Douglas, and Tony Gonzalez. Not a wise move.

The biggest news for Washington is the return to health of resident sack artist-in-chief, Brian Orakpo.

There are better options out there, but if you plan accordingly the Redskins defense is a useful weapon in the arsenal.
