At 7-9, the Washington Football Team limped their way out of the tattered NFC East to a surprising playoff berth. But despite the interesting season, they did greatly improve from their 3-13 season the year before. They brought in the traveling gunslinger QB in Ryan Fitzpatrick, and with a competent QB at the helm, they should be realistically competitive. But the rest of the NFC East looks like they stepped up their game or are getting healthy this season as well. This division should be just as competitive, but hopefully at a higher standard than 2020.
Their defense is a stout unit and can keep them in games even when Fitzpatrick has his downswings, and they got even better through the draft with the selection of Jamin Davis and Benjamin St. Juste. The offense looks loaded with weapons as they brought in Curtis Samuel and Dyami Brown to take some of the burdens off of Terry McLaurin. This team is a long-term QB away from looking like a promising squad. But stand-in Fitzpatrick should make them competitive in the 2021 season.
