Week 5 NFL picks and predictions: Falcons vs. Redskins

Two high-powered offenses square off as the Redskins meet the Falcons. Will RGIII put on a show, or will the Falcons continue their undefeated season?

As one of just three undefeated teams remaining in the NFL, the Atlanta Falcons travel to our nation's capital to face the Washington Redskins.

At 4-0, the Falcons have been perhaps the most impressive team of the season, with Matt Ryan clicking on all cylinders with his array of offensive weapons.

But despite the Falcons' offensive firepower and the Redskins' abysmal defense, the Falcons are by no means a unanimous pick to win this game, according to ESPN, Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sports experts.

A trio of ESPN personalities, including Adam Schefter, think that Robert Griffin III will outsling Matt Ryan and may perhaps be thinking that this game will feature minimal defense and the Redskins will have the ball last. While at CBS Sports, Mike Freeman also thinks that the Redskins can pull off the upset.
