This game is quite the toss up, as the Lions defense has been terrible this year, which falls in line with the Redskins offensive struggles. The Redskins have Haskins leading the offense and has struggled during his time. Haskins I think will be a solid quarterback in the league, after he gets another off season under his belt. As of right now, even as bas as the Lions have been defensively, I still trust them more then the Redskins offense. I'll put stock in the Lions here, as the Lions do have pretty solid play makers on the offensive side of the ball. Final score prediction, Lions cover on the road, 27-20.
