This is obviously a tough one to handicap, knowing that the status of QB Robert Griffin III is still up in the air and likely will be until right around game time on Sunday. However, what we definitely can work with is the fact that the Browns have been pretty darn good over the course of the last few games. Granted, they really haven’t beaten any of the truly big boys, but their playoff chances are at least still somewhat existent. Winning this one and getting some help can at least keep them alive, though obviously, that’s really not a realistic goal at this point. QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson are getting better and better, and this team is trying to prove that it is perhaps an elite receiver and a couple offensive linemen away from really being dynamic. Washington has been great, but this is a tough road test against one of these teams that is going to stay hungry for the rest of the year. We think that the Browns are going to win their final home game of the year, regardless of whether it is RG3 or QB Kirk Cousins calling the shots for the Skins.
Redskins @ Browns Pick: Cleveland Browns +1
Washington @ Cleveland Score Prediction: Cleveland 19 – Washington 16
