The 0-3 team that surprises me the most this season is the Washington Redskins. The reason why is because the Redskins won their division last year and made it to the playoffs. Now they are 0-3.
The first week they played the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles' only win came from the Redskins. The Redskins defense in that game was horrible. The Eagles drove down the field easily a dozen times. The second week they played the Green Bay Packers and again, they had a really bad game. The Packers are good but the Redskins are capable of so much more. Aaron Rodgers threw for 480 yards that game. The Redskins defense did not show up again. The third week they played the Detroit Lions and got beat by one touchdown. The Lions are a decent team but the Redskins have shown before that they can beat them. The Redskins defense was weak in that game. Matthew Stafford threw for 350 yards.
The Redskins have had some luck with the New York Giants 0-3, the Philadelphia Eagles 1-2, although the Dallas Cowboys are 2-1. The Washington Redskins have to step it up if they want to have a chance to make it to the playoffs. I believe the Redskins should beat the Oakland Raiders in Week 4, but let's see what happens!
