The Washington Redskins hope to stay in the thick of the lousy NFC East. Kirk Cousins is completing 69.2 percent of his passes for 3,306 yards, 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Cousins has three passing touchdowns in his last three games. Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon have combined for 1,308 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Jamison Crowder has 49 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 94.6 yards per contest, and Alfred Morris leads the way with 518 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 23.6 points and 363.7 yards per game. Dashon Goldson leads the Redskins with 96 tackles, Ryan Kerrigan has 7.5 sacks and Bashaud Breeland has 14 pass deflections. Jason Hatcher, DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts are questionable.
The Bills are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Redskins are 3-15 ATS in their last 18 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 15. The Bills are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
This line is off to me, as the Bills aren't that good of a football team and are finding creative ways to lose. The Redskins play their best ball on their home field and are actually still playing for something. I like Washington to win this game outright against a sloppy Bills team.
