Instead of predicting just this week’s game, as I usually do in this space, here is a stab at how the rest of the schedule will play out.
Redskins 31, Panthers 20—The RG3-Cam duel will close into the third quarter. But Griffin will come through in the late going and Newton will commit a key turnover.
Redskins 28, Eagles 24—The Eagles won’t quite be done imploding by the time they come to FedEx Field after the bye. One thing the Redskins defense has been able to do is get turnovers and that’s just the ticket for beating Michael Vick and company.
Cowboys 31, Redskins 28—The Redskins will have a shot at getting over .500 but the Cowboys on Thanksgiving mystique will be too much to overcome.
Giants 24, Redskins 21—Eli is just better than RG3 right now and he will pull out another one on Monday night at FedEx Field.
Ravens 21, Redskins 20—A game the Redskins have a real good shot at winning but just can’t quite get it done. Joe Flacco pulls it out in the end.
Redskins 21, Browns 10—After three straight tough losses, the Redskins will take it out on Cleveland. The Browns will seriously start to wonder why they didn’t pony up ore to get RG3.
Eagles 17, Redskins 14—The Eagles will be out of it by now, Andy Reid will be a dead man walking on the sideline, and Nick Foles could be the QB. Just the time for the Eagles to get it together and win for Reid one last time.
Redskins 38, Cowboys 24—It’s hard to tell where the Cowboys will be on the last game of the season. I’ll say that they’re going to be out of it or possibly needing a miracle to play in the postseason. But regardless the Redskins finish off the year on a high note by smashing the Cowboys.
That would be a 4-4 record in the second half and a 7-9 record for the year. Would that be good enough for you?
