The 'Skinny: Week 7 v. Tennessee Titans



    Welcome back to the second season of "The 'Skinny," a weekly preview of the local professional football team's upcoming game and opponent. Every Thursday, you can find any and all information* about the Redskins' next opponent in this space.

    (*Sometimes, it may be some or most information.)

    Game information: Sun., Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. at FedEx Field. Broadcast on CBS.

    Last Week: Stop me if you've heard this one before, but the Redskins lost. Again. To whom doesn't matter. (It was Arizona.) Meanwhile, the Titans actually won a game, defeating the Jaguars 16-14.

    What's The Skinny?

    Oh, you're still here? I commend you on your resolve. They pay me to be here.

    Anyway, the Redskins have lost four straight games, three of which were double-digit defeats. The equally mediocre Titans, who just snapped a four-game losing streak of their own, may provide the Redskins with an actual opportunity to win a football game.

    My colleague Rick Snider at Washington Post Express has provided five reasons why you should still watch, which are five more than I can think of. 

    Statistic Of The Week: Washington currently has a 0.4 percent chance of making the playoffs, so there is little to no hope that a win Sunday will catapult it back into contender status.

    What They're Saying 

    "I'm losing track."

    - Redskins coach Jay Gruden mistakingly stating that the team's record was 1-6 during a press conference this week. The joke writes itself.
