It’s easy to think that things should get easier for the Washington Redskins next week simply because they are playing one of last year’s basement-dwellers, the perpetually underwhelming Jacksonville Jaguars.
However, this version of the Jaguars could be better than last year’s 4-12 record suggests. Going into the season, Football Outsiders calculated the mean wins for every team, by simulating the 2014 season 10,000 times. Jacksonville’s mean wins number was 6.9, while Washington’s was 7.6.

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive ends Ryan Davis and Andre Branch should have asked former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn how to sneak a cell phone onto the field so they could properly celebrate a sack on Thursday night.
Davis sacked Atlanta Falcons quarterback T.J. Yates during the second quarter of the Jaguars' preseason finale. After the sack, Davis and Branch pretended to take a selfie in the end zone—while Yates was still getting up.
But while Former Free Agent Rookie Makes Good and Earns a Big-Time Role is a terrific storyline for fans and media, it doesn’t feel right to Davis.
Believing he had made good and earned a big-time role wasn’t what got Davis to his current situation. And even if he is one of the feel-good stories of Jaguars 2014 Training Camp, he’s not going to walk with that in his step.
