Redskins-Bills Predictions

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 4.13.53 PM

As ever, these are our crackerjack staff’s predictions for Week 15. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest gets to make a guest post on this here weblog.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 27-24

Skins win only cause it will build the hype for the Saturday night national TV game against the Eagles. (Preview: We lose.)

Todd Davis: Bills, 23-21

Something is very stinky about this line (Bills -1). Scares me to death. The funny thing will be losing this one but still being in the exact same position vis-a-vis the division going into next week as the Bandwagon really thins out.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 24-20

Quick look at that line and it’s pretty interesting. Almost 75 percent of the action is on Buffalo, and instead of dropping the line to get more even distribution on Washington, Vegas is instead upping the vig to take the Bills (-105 to -115). This means a Bills bet costs more, which means Vegas makes more money if Skins win.

Matt Terl: Bills, 24-17

Maybe I should be more optimistic, but all I see is doom and gloom and fumbles and interceptions. I can’t help it.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 31-20

I have some friends who are big Skins fans, so for their sake I really hope the Panthers can win this one against the Giants. It’ll be tough, though — Carolina is banged up, and it’s on the road. Still, New York is not a very good team and Cam & Co. have plenty left to prove to all these haters out here on the Internet. 14-0.

Jack Kogod: Bills, 23-17

This has become a chore on par with emptying the dishwasher.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 20-17

The Redskins can’t be trusted, but this season is taking on the feel of the 2005, ’07 and ’12 seasons, when Washington snuck into the playoffs after entering December with six losses. Since 1999, it’s our only hope.

Composite prediction: Redskins, 22something-21something

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Did you mean to show an incompletion in the lead graphic?

      No I just meant to show the god Art Monk. He did land out of bounds on that pass though didn’t he?

    is there any more over-rated coach than Rex Ryan? He talks way too much, doesn’t win enough. Skins are a better team, just gotta contain Watkins.

    Redskins 31 Bills 16
