Redskins-Jaguars Predictions

Brunell

So Week 1 was fun … not! (That was a not joke.)

Congrats to ODA for correctly picking that the Texans would ruin our opening game. Now he gets a guest post!

Moving on, here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome gets to be a published author on this here weblog.

Jack Kogod: Jaguars, 20-17

BURN IT ALL DOWN

Matt Terl: Redskins, 24-21

An angry, embarrassed DC squad jumps out to a big lead, then tries to hold on to it and almost fails. This will be yet another borderline unwatchable game.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 24-16

Redskins win and perform relatively well. A lot of Alfred Morris against a stubborn Jax defense. Chad Henne gets beat up by Washington D.

PS – Remember we thought special teams had nowhere to go but up?

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 20-10

Without looking, I could name one player on the Jaguars, and he isn’t a starter (Blake Bortles). This surely bodes well for Washington. Skins win a game that no one should be forced to watch.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 23-18

It’s too early in the year for this thing to completely come of the tracks. That happens after the Eagles and Giants games.

Todd Davis: Redskins, 23-17

Original Americans fix specials and don’t fumble inside the 10, which is nice.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 20-13

This has to be one of the worst, most uninteresting possible matchups in the NFL. I shudder to think who the broadcast duo will be.

Composite prediction: Redskins, 22-16

What’s an RGIII-infused Jay Gruden offense/Jay Gruden offense-infused RGIII going to look like? How will Trent Williams handle Jadeveon Clowney? How many offensive lineman does it take to stop JJ Watt? Will DeSean Jackson break a big one? Is it possible that Jim Haslett isn’t shitty after all? Is special teams going to be the same old crippling handicap? Can this season possibly be any worse?

I don’t know, but I’m genuinely excited to find out, for Week 1 at least. So pull up your craft beer and pulled pork BBQ nachos, or what have you, and watch this game with us. Comments below.

Kickoff: 1 p.m. ET
Line: Redskins 3 (O/U 44.5)
Our prediction: Texans, 21-20
