Home dogs are all the buzz right now in the NFL, and they are still hitting at an insanely high rate as they usually do. This is a tough one to back, but it is one that we are going to back all the same, even though the Redskins haven’t won a home game since Week 2 of last year. Just as we saw when the Cardinals played the Rams on Thursday, there aren’t many teams that are 2-2 this time of year that can’t beat a team that is 4-0, and though Atlanta has clearly looked like one of the best four teams in the league this year (joining Houston, Baltimore, and San Francisco), it isn’t so good that it is going to win this game all the time. QB Robert Griffin III has a chance to make himself a hero in DC, and we think that he is going to find a way to do just that when push comes to shove against the Falcons in the form of an upset.
Falcons @ Redskins Pick: Washington Redskins +3
Atlanta @ Washington Score Prediction: Washington 27 – Atlanta 24
