The way it works is, our Redskins-loving “staff” makes predictions in the post, readers make predictions in the comments, and the commenter who comes closest to the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
Chris Mottram: Packers, 31-24
Based on what we saw from the Skins’ offense in Week 1, I don’t see any reason to believe they go to Lambeau and beat the Packers. Not to mention Washington’s secondary against Aaron Rodgers, which seems like an unfair mismatch. It’ll be high scoring again, but Skins fall short.
Matt Terl: Redskins, 28-27
It can’t go THAT badly again, right? I’d feel much better if someone other than Chris Thompson was returning punts and kickoffs, though.
JP Finlay: Packers, 28-20
I think the winner of the NFC East will have a 9-7 record, and I certainly think the Skins can get to nine wins. But I don’t think it starts this week. Green Bay is really good, they almost won on the road against the best team in the league. Folks might be looking too much into the Skins “comeback” last week in the second half. The Eagles D played about as tough as Buster Bluth the last 30 minutes of that game. Wins to come, but not in Lambeau.
Andy Peden: Packers, 31-27
It’s going to get worse before it gets better. Another ugly first half with the Skins down two scores and playing catch up.
Todd Davis: Redskins, 34-27
Wait, who was the dummy that said the ’91 team better watch out?! Oh yeah, right, well about that. I’m not giving up that easy.
Jack Kogod: Packers, 34-31
I unfollow every Redskins writer/blogger/whatever on Twitter except for John Keim.
Me: Packers, 34-27
So I call my Grandma on Tuesday to shoot the shit, and the Skins-Eagles game comes up.
Grandma: “What happened to RJ?” (Yes, “RJ.”)
Me: “He looked pretty rusty.”
Grandma: “Where was Cousins?.”
Me: “He was in uniform, on the sideline.”
Grandma: “They should put him in there.”
Composite prediction: Packers, 30-27
