Andy Peden: Redskins, 23-18
If the Skins win, sports talk radio will be unbearable for the next 10 days.
Chris Mottram: Redskins, 34-17
This is finally the week the Skins win an easy one. They continue to feed the run game and the defense forces multiple turnovers. Regardless, I don’t have to hear a damn word of D.C. sports talk radio.
Matt Terl: Vikings, 24-17
I am so excited to have a reason to get invested in the generally terrible Thursday night game that I can’t even come up with an appropriately apocalyptic scenario for how they’re going to lose. It’ll be something to do with the short week of practice plus travel plus the sheer overwhelming excitement of being in Minnesota. Use your imagination.
Jack Kogod: Redskins, 24-13
I still hate everything about Thursday Night Football.
JP Finlay: Redskins, 30-17
They win again. Defense is starting to play better, a bit anyway, and Ponder sucks.
Todd Davis: Redskins, 17-16
Horrible game, but they eke it out!
Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-24
You know, Minnesota almost won at Dallas last week, where the Redskins lost by 15. Still.
Composite prediction: Redskins, 25-18
