Redskins defense struggling lately, especially on 3rd down

WASHINGTON (AP) Missed tackles. Missed assignments. Missed communication. All are plausible explanations for what's gone wrong with the Washington Redskins' defense lately.

A unit that was a big reason for the team's strong start to the season is also now a big reason for the Redskins' rapid descent to 6-6 and a three-game losing streak heading into Sunday's matchup against the visiting New York Giants.

"We've just got to get off the field," Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said. "Got to find a way to get off the field."
