The Redskins have lost twice at home to the Detroit Lions, but both of those losses were when we were playing in Boston...so technically that statement is correct.I heard the other day that Detroit has NEVER won in DC. Let's hope that streak continues!
And another reason that a win here is so critical, is our schedule is absolutely brutal this year.A loss Sunday just further feeds the reactionary hype machine and makes the teams' job that much harder for having to deal with it. We can still have a fun, playoff-contending season in 2013, but if they're going to make that happen, it almost certainly has to start against Detroit. There is a chasm between 1-2 and 0-3 that might simply be too broad to overcome.
