Redskins coach Mike Shanahan experienced his first shutout loss in 24 seasons as an NFL coach or offensive coordinator, as his club got beat up by the Bills 23-0 in Toronto on Sunday.
John Beck managed to lead the Redskins’ offense to only ten first downs and 178 yards of total offense. It was a long, miserable day considering the BYU alum was also sacked nine times by the stifling Bills’ defense; which gave no answers for a ‘Skins unit looking for answers and points.
“I kind of don’t have any answers right now,” Beck said, making his second straight start since replacing Rex Grossman. “I’m trying to figure that out myself. This is the one you want to see the tape, because it will be very telling.”
Not even the run game could help out a brutal Beck, giving the battered signal caller just 26 yards on 12 carries. It was an outing to forget for a team which suffered their third consecutive loss, dropping to under .500 at 3-4.
“It’s pretty humbling to take that,” Shanahan said. “That’s as bad as I’ve ever been involved with from the offensive side.”
The only thing you could possibly take out of the humbling defeat was London Fletcher tallying 20 tackles (12 solo) for the game.
