I feel like I say this every week, but this is a big game for the Redskins. In the past, they were big games for the standings and their record, but now it's just a big game for respect.
There's a lot of people in the D.C. area who are upset with the team and how they performed on Monday and I can't say that I blame them. This game against the Titans on Sunday is a good opportunity to earn some of the trust back that they lost on Monday. They won't be able to get all of that trust and respect back in Sunday, but a win certainly will help.Here are the latest odds from over at SB Nation.com's odds page.
- Opening Line: Tennessee by 6.5, -110
- 5Dimes.com: Tennessee by 8, +110
- Bodog: Tennessee by 7, -110
And the over/unders
- Opening Line: 42 (Skins -110)
- 5Dimes.com: 44 (Skins -110)
- Bodog: 44 (Skins -110)
My Prediction: I don't think the Skins will be able to bounce back from Monday, especially considering that it was a short week. Chris Johnson is too good on the ground and Vince Young should be able to keep the D honest with his arm. I'll take the Titans 31-17, so I'd be comfortable giving the points on this one. Based on the demonstration we saw on Monday, I'll also take the over.
