QB Robert Griffin (Washington) As a rookie, Griffin completed 65.6% of his passes for an average of 8.14 YPA, 20 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions, while rushing for 815 yards and 7 touchdowns on 120 carries (6.79 YPC). Last season, he completed 60.1% of his passes for an average of 7.02 YPA, 16 touchdowns, and 12 [...]

The Redskins desperately needed safety help and secondary help in general. Brandon Meriweather was their best safety last year, but he’s a below average starter, while 2013 4th and 6th round picks Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo didn’t show anything as rookies last season. Thomas missed the entire season with injury, while Rambo graded out [...]

Washington Redskins (3-10) at New York Giants (6-9) The Giants went into Detroit and beat the Lions last week, while the Redskins lost at home to the Cowboys. Surely the Giants will win at home here against the Redskins and cover this small spread right? Well, that seems to be what the public thinks as [...]

Washington Redskins (3-11) at Dallas Cowboys (7-7) At first glance, this line doesn’t make any sense. In what universe are the Cowboys 6 points better than the Redskins (3 points for home field advantage)? The Cowboys’ defense not only is the worst defense in the NFL, but it’s approaching historically bad. They only thing they [...]

Washington Redskins (3-10) at Atlanta Falcons (3-10) What’s reportedly happening in Washington between Head Coach Mike Shanahan and Owner Dan Snyder is one of the most dysfunctional things that has happened between a head coach and Owner in a long while. Shanahan has benched Robert Griffin and will be shutting him down for the season, [...]

Last week: 25 (-3) Record: 3-8 Any talk of the Redskins benching RG3 is just absurd media sensationalism. This is what the media does. They build players up to undeservedly high levels and then destroy them when they fail to meet those expectations. RG3 isn’t even having that bad of a season, completing 59.8% of [...]

New York Giants (4-7) at Washington Redskins (3-8) I’m torn on this one. On one hand, this line seems pretty off at first glance. The Giants aren’t significantly better than the Redskins, which is what this line would suggest, as the Giants are favored in Washington. The Redskins were favored by 1.5 points last week [...]

San Francisco 49ers (6-4) at Washington Redskins (3-7) The 49ers have been deadly off of a loss in the Jim Harbaugh era. It might not seem that way because they’ve lost back-to-back games on separate occasions twice this season. However, they are 6-3 ATS off of a loss in the Jim Harbaugh era, including 8-3 [...]

Last week: 23 (+0) Record: 3-6 The Redskins are at 3-6, which is right where they were last season when they ripped off 7 straight wins and won the division. The difference this year is that their remaining schedule is harder and their team isn’t as good. Last season, they’re final 7 opponents finished 48-64. [...]

Washington Redskins (3-5) at Minnesota Vikings (1-7) The Redskins won a crazy home game against the Chargers last week in overtime, but that game might really hurt them here this week. Teams are 3-16 ATS since 1989 on Thursday Night after an overtime game. It makes sense. Recovering from a longer game on a short [...]

San Diego Chargers (4-3) at Washington Redskins (2-5) One of the most powerful trends in the NFL says that road favorites dominate off of a bye, going 45-18 ATS since 2002. It makes sense. Road favorites are significantly superior teams and significantly superior teams tend to use the extra week very well and dominate their [...]

Last week: 25 (+1) Record: 2-5 The Redskins looked on their way to an upset in Denver, leading 21-7 in the 3rd quarter, before the Broncos scored 38 unanswered points to end the game, both with their defense and their offense as everything fell apart for the Redskins. There’s no shame in getting blown out [...]

Washington Redskins (2-4) at Denver Broncos (6-1) The Broncos lost their first game of the season in Indianapolis last week. The good news is they return home here to play the Washington Redskins in a game in which they should win. The question is, by how much will they win? Fortunately for them, they have [...]

Last week: 26 (+1) Record: 2-4 Robert Griffin had his best game of the season this week against an admittedly banged up Chicago defense. He led the Redskins’ offense to 5 touchdowns in a 45-41 win, throwing for 298 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception on 18 of 29 passing. He also rushed for 84 [...]
