Revamped Skins defense ranks 31st in points allowed in NFL

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) So much for that offseason overhaul of the Washington Redskins defense, a unit that even cornerback Josh Norman acknowledged after a recent game played like "trash."

They fired their old defensive coordinator. They spent first-, second- and third-round draft picks on that side of the ball. They added free agents there, too.

Still, it's become a real weakness lately: Heading into their game against the New York Giants on Thursday night, the Redskins are allowing an average of 26.6 points, more than all but one of the NFL's 32 clubs (the Indianapolis Colts' opponents score 28 per game).
