As ever, these are our crackerjack staff’s predictions for Week 4. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest gets to make a guest post on this here weblog.
Chris Mottram: Redskins, 13-10
The rain and sloppy conditions help Washington, which wins an ugly, low-scoring game. The Cowboys lose to the Saints on Sunday night, the Skins are tied for first, D.C. loses its damn mind before having its soul crushed by November. This is our destiny. #KeepPounding
Matt Terl: Eagles, 17-10
Root for the hurricane.
Andy Peden: Eagles, 17-12
It starts to get ugly around here. People start talking about replacing Cousins.
JP Finlay: Eagles, 20-13
I think Peden is onto something. Lotta running and sloppy, sloppy field.
Jack Kogod: Eagles, 21-14
Todd Davis: Redskins, 24-23
Strangely enough, but for obvious reasons, I really like Washington given the Joaquin factor. Will be interesting to see how backup guard Arie Kouandjio looks if he’s forced into action. And of course, ROOT for the Dukes!
Jamie Mottram: Eagles, 27-20
If Washington wins, we’ll all go right back to wondering if Capt. Kirk can lead us to a division championship in a down year. Washington won’t win.
Composite prediction: Eagles, 19-15
