Ryan has two or more touchdown passes in six of his last 10 games. Julio Jones and Leonard Hankerson have combined for 719 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jacob Tamme has eight receptions.

The Redskins are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games in Week 5 and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Besides a road game against the Giants on short rest, the Redskins haven't played THAT bad. Washington has a defense that's sixth in the NFL in yards allowed and has an offense that has some under-the-radar firepower. Yees, Atlanta should win this game, but the value is with the Redskins and the free touchdown. This game should be tight.
