The status of QB Robert Griffin III is still obviously up in the air, and we’re going to have to wait until late tonight or early on Sunday until we know for sure whether he is in or out. Of course, RG3 is going to make a big time difference in this one. But will it change the victor? The truth of the matter is that we think the Redskins are winning this game regardless. It’s high time that the Vikings end up falling apart, and we think that QB Kirk Cousins could win this game all the same as RG3 could. Minnesota’s pass rush is ferocious, but if the offensive line keeps whatever quarterback is under center clean, what’s left is a team that just doesn’t have the tenacity to be able to win road games in all likelihood on a consistent basis. This is the time that the Redskins are finally going to get that elusive victory at home, something that hasn’t happened in years.
Vikings @ Redskins Pick: Washington Redskins -1.5
Minnesota @ Washington Score Prediction: Washington 20 – Minnesota 17
