Patriots vs. Redskins: NFL Week 5 Picks & Game Predictions
The Washington Redskins will host the New England Patriots (1:00 P.M ET, CBS) with a big-time problem at the quarterback position.
Case Keenum has looked terrible and Dwayne Haskins didnt perform much better after he replaced him. In Haskins defense, he still hasnt taken snaps with the first group in clinic which means he does not have some chemistry with the guys he was projecting to last Sunday. 1 week of training is enough to produce the first beginning of your livelihood. The Redskins may have any option but to start him because Colt and Keenum McCoy are coping with accidents.
The New England Patriots have hardly had to get out of second gear this season. After destroying the Steelers the Patriots have played a number of the worst teams from the NFL. They got their first test on the street against a Buffalo Bills protection. Tom Brady had among the worst games youre very likely to watch him play. The Bills defense is legit and they could establish the run from New England. That led to them controlling the time of possession. The Washington Redskins will probably be doing none of this.
The lineup for this game started at -14 Patriots together using the Total. Both have observed movement while the spread is up to -15 at most novels, going all the way down to 42. If you were thinking Beneath, it looks like it might be too late but its still not a bad drama. The Patriots havent let more than 14 points into any opponent this year. The problem is 45 themselves could be scored by the Patriots in this match, the Redskins are bad.
Patriots -15 (-105) at 5Dimes
You can not place money on Washington at the moment although this spread is hated by me particularly. The Redskins will not score double digits within this match. The Redskins could not run or pass against the Giants who have among the worst defenses in the NFL. They have not known as a starting quarterback for Sunday that leads me to feel that the Patriots will walk all over them. Patriots -15 and plead they dont get bored late at the game and insure.
