Washington FT " Garbage Time" defense getting so much love can someone explain it? Ryan Fitzpatrick?

The NFL talking heads are giving the Washington Football team a lot of love especially their defense after winning the NFC East last season. In the way they say Dak Prescott only gets stats in "Garbage Time" can we say Washington's defense got stats from playing "Garbage Team offenses" ? The list of QB's they faced were some of the worst in the NFL. With only 7 wins (Two against Cowboys and Two against Eagles, Bangles, 49ers and Stealers there aren't a lot of great wins.
