Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland said the only receiver that made him feel like a rookie during his first year in the NFL is when he went up against Arizona Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald. That day — Oct. 12, 2014 — Fitzgerald had six catches for 98 yards in a 30-20 win. Breeland said Fitzgerald used all sorts of veteran techniques that he wasn’t sure how to counter at the time. “He was just holding where they can’t see,” Breeland said. “You feel like you’re supposed to be jamming him, but he jamming you!” For that reason, Breeland said he’s been looking forward to a rematch ever since. But Breeland also knows the importance of a win. The Redskins have lost two straight games, each a disastrous one-sided loss. Last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, Breeland was benched for most of the game, too.
