WSH – NYJ Week 13 Preview

November 30, 2011


The Redskins (4-7) face the Jets (6-5) at FedEx on Sunday Dec. 4, at 1pm. This will be the first of two consecutive games against an AFC East opponent.

So far this season, the Jets are 0-5 on the road with all of their wins being at home. The Redskins hold a 2-3 record at FedEx with wins against the Giants and the Cardinals.

The Redskins and Jets have met a total of 9 times since 1972 with the Redskins leading the all-time series 8-1 in which The ‘Skins are 4-1 at home.

Key Matchups:

Hall (23) – Burress (17):

Look to see DeAngelo and Plaxico battling throughout the night. DeAngelo, being named the NFC East’s Defensive Player of the Week in week 12, will look to limit the amount of opportunities for Plaxico. Plaxico has 34 receptions for 479 yards and seven touchdowns on the season. In week 12 against the Seahawks, DeAngelo recorded an interception late in the fourth quarter to seal the Redskins’ victory.

Kerrigan (91)/ Orakpo (98) – Hunter (78)/ Ferguson (60)

The Redskins defense is tied for the lead in the NFL for sacks. Kerrigan and Orakpo lead the race with 6 apiece. Neither RT Wayne Hunter or LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson have allowed a sack this season. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will likely try to change that. Mark Sanchez has been sacked 25 times so far this season, and Kerrigan looks to beat Orakpo’s rookie sack record of 11.

Kerrigan (91) – Keller (81)

Kerrigan isn’t really known for his coverage abilities. If Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is smart, he’ll try and exploit that with Dustin Keller. Keller is coming off of a 66 yard, 2 td game against the Bills.

Grossman (8) – Revis (24)

Rex has a habit of throwing into coverage and getting picked. If Kyle Shanahan can’t beat that out of him, Darrelle Revis could have a field day. Revis has four interceptions on the season and is on pace to get six. Rex needs to take his time, step up into the pocket, and deliver a strike. Just. Like. This one. If that ball is underthrown even the slightest, turnover.

Who we’re watching:

Roy Helu (29)

Be ready to see Roy Helu in his third start on the season. Helu posted 108 yards on 23 carries and a touchdown along with 7 receptions for 54 yards. Nominated for rookie of the week for the second time, Roy Helu could be the breakout back Shanahan has been searching for. Plus, who didn’t think this was bad ass.
