NFL Picks And Predictions Week 3: Bengals Vs. Redskins

The Washington Redskins vs. the Cincinnati Bengals: two promising young offenses vs. two horrendous defenses. This could be a shoot-out.


After opening the season with two road games, the Washington Redskins and their rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III, make their home debut Sunday against Cincinnati.

Despite being 1-1 with a suspect defense, the Redskins have received plenty of early season attention because of the play of their No. 1 pick.

What do some experts think?

With the Bengals' defense currently ranked 30th in the league, with trouble stopping both the pass and the run, the majority of the guys and computers over at ESPN and Yahoo! Sports believe the Redskins will move to 2-1 on the season. But for some inexplicable reason – maybe it's something in the water cooler there – many of the CBS experts are picking the Bengals to at least limit Griffin's production, while Bengals QB Andy Dalton will take advantage of the Redskins' weak secondary.

At the very least, we could be in for another shootout, much like what the Redskins played in St. Louis last Sunday.
