The Washington Redskins are looking for their first road victory that would give them a .500 record.

Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon have combined for 545 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Jamison Crowder has 23 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 121.8 yards per contest, and Alfred Morris leads the way with 276 yards on 74 carries. Defensively, Washington is allowing 20.8 points and 314 yards per game. Keenan Robinson leads the Redskins with 31 tackles, Chris Baker has 3.5 sacks and Kyshoen Jarrett has two pass deflections. Matt Jones, Bashaud Breeland and DeSean Jackson are questionable.
The New York Jets look to get their fourth victory and are coming off a bye week. Ryan Fitzpatrick is completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 924 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Fitzpatrick has thrown a pick in every game this season. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker have combined for 580 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Bilal Powell has 14 receptions. The New York Jets ground game i averaging 127.3 yards per contest, and Chris Ivory leads the way with 314 yards and three touchdowns.

Bilal Powell, Jamari Lattimore and Darrin Walls are questionable.
The Redskins are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 road games and 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Jets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The favorite is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Jets have had an extra week to prepare and the Redskins are coming a tough, emotional overtime loss last week. Now Cousins, who is as turnover prone as any QB in the league, will be up against a nasty and rested Jets defense. This is a bad matchup all around. I'll take the New York Jets by a touchdown.
