When we look at the horrendous amounts of combined injuries between these two teams, we have some critical ideas developing:
Kirk Cousins has picked up his role and ran with it. Despite Cousins going on record reiterating that he feels it’s still Griffin’s team, his teammates, coaches and managers have got to be sizing him up for the role of 1st string QB.
Bottom line, the Washington Redskin’s scoring machine is firing on all pistons. 75 points across 7 quarters is a league elite QB.
Washington gave up a whopping 37 points vs the Eagles which indicates that their defense is vulnerable, granted, Philadelphia has a lethal offense.
– LB Devon Kennard Out for Sunday with a hamstring issue. (DEF)
These teams’ combined injuries most definitely qualify them for ‘extenuating’.
Washington might be 5th in the league in scoring, but that also includes Griffin’s grizzly opening day.
Cousins is arguably the best QB in the league and the same can be argued for the Washington offense.
It could be argued that the Giants’ bottom tier offense won’t come close to cracking the case vs the Redskins.
Quick pick on this one.Atlanta Falcons Points For
– Week 3: 14
Minnesota Vikings Points Against
– Week 2: 30
With an ‘above average’ performance last Sunday, the young and inexperienced QB could turn heads in a star performance in week 4.
While this is definitely a possible ace in the hole for Minnesota, it’s their defensive woes that could crumble and allow Atlanta to cover -3 ATS.
The pick: Atlanta Falcons -3
