Detroit Lions vs Washington Redskins
Tale tells, fine, the Redskins Post's Mike Wise informs-- that when the Washington Redskins loss over Detroit Lions in 2009, was a crucial day for the Washington franchise.
As the Detroit cracked a winless streak that prolonged past the beginning of the period before, with the Detroit appearing of the locker area for a post-game drape telephone call, Washington owner Dan Snyder and his top consultants began drinking. That's when Synder started his pursuit of head trainer Mike Shanahan.
Ever since, both teams have actually made the playoffs, and also both teams are seeking to do so once more this season. The Detroit, nonetheless, are the ones which humiliated themselves last season, and the Washington as well as Robert Griffin III are ascendant.
Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions
This is why the Washington could possibly wind up giving thanks to the heavens that they discovered a means to bring DeAngelo Hall back. If Hall could step up as well as hang in with all-world Calvin Johnson Detroit receiver similarly he finished with Dez Bryant in last year's do-or-die season ending, the 'Skins need to have no problem notching a home victory over a Lions team that was just 2-6 away from home last year.
Remember: The Washington make their cash on the ground, and this Lions protection gave up a below average 4.5 backyards per hurrying effort in previous season. I don't assume Lions has the perfect workers on defense to manage Alfred Morris and also Robert Griffin III .
The Detroit are sloppy and also the Washington are not. That'll be a significant factor here, specifically at FedEx Field. No method the 'Skins begin 0-3.
Forecast: Redskins 28, Lions 17
