Fresh off a NFC East title and a stellar performance during the Wild Card Round of the 2021 NFL Playoffs, the Washington Football Team is looking to start the 2021 NFL season with a big win against the Los Angeles Chargers. Now that they’ve officially named Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback, Washington will look to run a highly efficient offense from the get-go.

On the flip side, Chase Young will look to build off a highly successful rookie campaign in which he won Defensive Rookie of the Year and helped transform Washington into one of the league’s best defenses. With a balanced roster on both ends of the field, the Washington Football Team will be cooking with gas come Sunday afternoon, so the Chargers better be ready for what’s coming their way.

Let’s take a look at four bold predictions for Washington’s week 1 matchup against the Chargers.

Ryan Fitzpatrick will put up big numbers in Washington debut

After his stellar play with the Miami Dolphins last season, Ryan Fitzpatrick showed he still has plenty left in the tank and will be a huge asset to the Washington Football Team in 2021. With Terry McLaurin getting better each season and Logan Thomas continuing to make his case as one of the best tight ends in the NFL, Fitzmagic will be a boon for this offense after last season’s struggles.

Not to mention the additions of Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries will give him even more deep threats to work with while seamlessly moving the ball around. Fresh off a solid run with the Dolphins last season, Ryan Fitzpatrick will look to make Washington a much more explosive offense.
