The Redskins rank 31st against the run but DeMarco Murray knows every week is a new week. "You can never go on stats when you play a team like this and a game like this where it’s a division game" Murray said. "They're a great defense. [London] Fletcher is still there. [Ryan] Kerrigan and [Brian] Orakpo both on the edges still. We respect those guys and we know it’s going to be a hard-fought game and we’re excited for the challenge." The Redskins are allowing 106 yards a game but a big chunk came in a Week 1 game against the Eagles. Philadelphia rushed for 263 yards against the Redskins including 184 on 31 carries by LeSean McCoy. Green Bay rushed for 139 in Week 2 including 132 yards on 20 carries by James Starks. Since then the Redskins have tightened their run defense. They allowed 63 against Detroit and 104 against the Raiders.
DeMarco Murray could see more carries this week against the league's 31st rushing defense
