To say the least, times are tough for the Washington Redskins.

Not only is the organization facing serious questions about the nature of its name, the team itself has struggled to remain relevant after winning only seven games in the last two years.

And now the Redskins' fans have come under fire for their poor grammar and sloppy writing on the team's website.

With the help of Grammarly, a service which uses algorithms to proofread writing for spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, the Wall Street Journal studied the comments of NFL teams' websites. The Journal found that Redskins commenters made an average of 16.5 mistakes per 100 words, which was the worst in the league. New Orleans Saints fans were second at 12.4 mistakes per 100 words.

Here's the complete list of teams that the Journal gathered from Grammarly.

It's hard to pinpoint any reason for Washington fans' struggles, although it is fun to speculate. Perhaps fans are less accurate when they're angry, which Redskins fans have been recently following poor play by their team and its once-savior Robert Griffin III.

Or maybe Redskins fans are so passionate that they overlook spelling and punctuation to make their arguments.

There's no simple correlation between losing and grammar mistakes, as New England Patriots fans had the fourth-most and New York Jets fans had the fourth fewest.

On average, NFL fans make 10 mistakes per 100 words, which according to the Journal is more than NHL and MLB fans (8.2 each) but less than NBA and NASCAR followers (10.3 and 10.5, respectively).

Best, Worst NFL Stadium Beer Prices Revealed



Can Raiders fans catch a break? Their team hasn't made the playoffs since 2002. Almost every home game in the last three years has been blacked out on local TV due to poor game attendance. And those that do choose to attend the game pay a league-high $10.75 for a beer.



The 49ers know their fans have deep pockets. The team just moved into fancy new confines in nearby Santa Clara, and the average cost of a ticket into Levi's Stadium is the highest in the league. San Francisco is also a close second to neighboring Oakland when it comes to the price of a beer, at $10.25 per. But hey, at least they're winning games.



Things aren't so bad for New England fans. The price of a beer in Gillette Stadium is right at the league average, but Patriots fans get 20 ounces for just $7.50. When priced by ounce, Pats beers are tied for the second-cheapest game beers in the NFL.



You don't often see beer prices go down from season to season, but that's exactly what happened in St. Louis this year, dropping the price of beer to $4.50. The Rams have seen better football days, but a glass of beer is 50 cents cheaper in St. Louis than in any other NFL stadium. That's something to celebrate.



St. Louis may have the lowest sticker price for beer, sure. But if you want to get down to brass tacks, no one sells cheaper drafts than Cincinnati. One beer costs five dollars, but fans get 14 ounces in a glass instead of 12. That's just enough of a difference to lead the league in price-per-ounce.



Seattle claims to have the best football fans in the world, but that admiration doesn't translate into savings at the snack line. Beer at Seattle's CenturyLink Field is on the more expensive end in the NFL, with a single draft costing $8.



For being in a city known to throw a good party, beer sales at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome sure don't make it easy to imbibe. A beer at a Saints game will cost you $9, but fans only get 16 ounces in their cup. That's 56 cents per ounce, the third-worst mark in the NFL.



If volume is your main concern, plan a trip to Pittsburgh. In a city known for its blue-collar pedigree, fans are treated with 21-ounce fistfuls of beer, the largest standard beer of any NFL stadium. And at just $8 each, Heinz Field is tied with New England's Gillette Field for the second-best price-per-ounce.



It's not the $7.25 price tag that will frustrate fans at Arizona's University of Phoenix Stadium. It's the fact that beers only come in 12-ounce sizes. That's 60 cents per ounce, which stands alone as the second-highest mark in the NFL. Only one other fan base has more of a right to complain...



Congratulations, Philly fans. What you lack in Super Bowl victories, you make up for by laying claim to the most expensive beer in all the National Football League. Like Arizona, beers only come in 12-ounce sizes. But Philly fans pay $8.50 per, a full $1.25 more than what Cardinals fans are forced to shell out.
