The Redskins average 12 points per game and haven’t scored a touchdown in their last three contests. Can this grade be anything but an F?

Washington has already started three quarterbacks this season--Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy--and none has looked particularly impressive. At least Haskins is a rookie and expected to look rough until he learns the speed and requirements of the NFL.

Twelve points per game is tied for last in the NFL, along with the terrible New York Jets. From a yardage standpoint, the Redskins average 259 yards per game, which is 31st in the league. Only the Jets are worse, but at least they’re way worse, averaging just 223.

The Redskins offense converts fewer than 25 percent of its third downs, which is good for 31st in the league. The only team worse, of course, is the Jets.

Statistically, the best feature of the Redskins offense is its run game. The team averages nearly 90 yards per game on the ground, good for 25th in the NFL.

Oddly, for a team with such limited offense, the Redskins haven’t turned the ball over at too alarming of a rate. Washington ranks 23rd in the NFL with a -3 turnover differential.

Through nine games, the Redskins' leading receiver is rookie Terry McLaurin with nearly 500 receiving yards and five touchdowns. The team’s leading runner is Adrian Peterson with nearly 500 yards rushing and one touchdown.

With Haskins likely installed at quarterback for the remainder of the season, the Redskins' numbers might not change dramatically. If the rookie passer can start to show signs of progress, however, then maybe a lost season will still hold some value.
