--Count C Casey Rabach as somebody who won't be questioning Jim Zorn's play-calling. The Redskins left three points on the field in the first quarter when Zorn opted to go for it on fourth-and-goal from the 1.

"There is plenty of blame to go around everywhere," Rabach said. "Our job is to execute the plays. That's something we haven't been doing. We haven't been putting ourselves in the best situation to win football games."

--The Redskins' offense moved up to 13th in yards per game thanks to two garbage-time drives.

"We're just not consistent enough throughout the game," tight end Chris Cooley said. "We show the ability to make big plays, we show the ability to make normal plays. Our problem is that we don't execute every time and put ourselves in bad situations like penalties, sacks and runs for negative yards. Those are plays that really hurt us offensively."

Only Cleveland, Oakland and St. Louis are averaging fewer points than the Redskins' offense.

"It's Week 4. We're fine," Cooley said. "We just have to figure out a way to win some football games and keep everybody up. We're not out of anything. It's unfortunate we lost and ended Detroit's losing streak. We obviously have some major hurdles to overcome but we can do that."
