Hey, let’s play Predictions! Last week’s winner is illformula, who accurately predicted Redskins-Cowboys. A reminder on how it works, for the uninitiated:
Our Redskins-loving “staff” makes predictions in the post, readers make predictions in the comments, and the commenter who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
Chris Mottram: Giants, 28-24
While I so desperately want to believe the Skins will win this game, it’s tough to find one reason, on paper, why they will. BUT THE GAMES AREN’T PLAYED ON PAPER, you say. And you’re right. Washington certainly has a chance — the last match-up proved as much. But I see them falling just short in typical, painful fashion.
Matt Terl: Giants, 28-24
I WANT to believe everything is different and the old rules don’t matter anymore, but I’m not quite there yet. Basically, important MNF games still terrify me
JP Finlay: Redskins, 31-27
Lets keep this ride moving. Giants looked like the best in the world last week, so lets hope for a bit of a letdown this week. Redskins defense has hit much better since the bye. Giants wideouts can drop passes. RG3 gets it done.
Andy Peden: Giants, 23-18
The last two weeks have been way too enjoyable. I know, as a life long D.C. sports fan, that it doesn’t last for long.
Todd Davis: Giants, 31-30
What Andy said.
Jack Kogod: Redskins, 27-24
All hail Kai Forbath!
Me: Redskins, 27-23
I’m just really looking forward to an evening with Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and ESPN’s NFL Countdown crew.
Composite prediction: A STATISTICAL TIE! 26-26.
