The Washington Redskins hope for their first playoff victory since the 2005 season. Kirk Cousins is completing 69.8 percent of his passes for 4,166 yards, 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Cousins has 11 touchdown passes in his last three games. Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon have combined for 1,729 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns while Jamison Crowder has 59 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 97.9 yards per contest, and Alfred Morris leads the way with 751 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 23.7 points and 380.6 yards per game. Dashon Goldson leads the Redskins with 110 tackles, Ryan Kerrigan has 9.5 sacks and Bashaud Breeland has 16 pass deflections. Dashon Goldson, Jason Hatcher and Matt Jones are questionable.
The Packers are 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff road games. The Redskins are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Packers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
I'm not sure why this line is the way it is, as the Packers haven't been the Packers for quite some time. Green Bay doesn't have any receivers who can get open and it's resulted in six losses in its last 10 games. Meanwhile, Washington has been playing incredible football at home and has a confident bunch that's eager to bring its fans a playoff victory for the first time in over a decade.
I see the Redskins winning this game rather easily.
