If we go under the assumptions that the Ravens are getting into the playoffs and the Browns aren’t, the Bengals have now beaten 11 straight non-playoff teams dating back into the 2010 season. And now, we have to ask the important question: Is Washington going to get into the playoffs this year? It just doesn’t feel like it. That being said, we aren’t all that sure that the Redskins are going to lose this one, as after all, it is the very first home game for QB Robert Griffin III, and they do have some major promise. That being said, the defense just hasn’t been good for the Redskins thus far this year, and with all of the holes that they have with LB Brian Orakpo and the likes out of the fold, they’ll be hard-pressed to try to stop QB Andy Dalton and WR AJ Green. We’ll take RG3 to find a way to win this one at the gun, but only by the slenderest of margins.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Redskins Pick: Cincinnati Bengals +3
Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Redskins Score Prediction: Washington 24 – Cincinnati 23
