Thanks to all who contribute here on covers. Stepping out here to make my largest wager of the season Sunday at ,MetLiife Stadium. Many will ask why wager over five figures on a meaningless game. Well here goes:
Redskins 7-8: Everything I read says getting to 8-8 means something to these guys. Played well defensively last two weeks in beating the Cardinals and woeful Broncos.
- Motivation: Redskins still have bad taste in their mouths from losing last season's finale to Giants with a playoff berth on line. Giants had no incentive and still won in Washington.
Giants - What more is there to say. This team is a complete dumpster fire and is looking to end the season. Another suspension this week with CB Eli Apple.
- Giants played Eagles tough a few weeks ago and moved the ball well in their best offensive performance of season. However, all their weapons from that game are gone. Shepard and Engram both out. An already shaky Eli now has to throw to Lewis, Sharp, Rudolph, Ellison and Bundy on a brutally cold and windy day. I just can't see them scoring much here at all.
Protecting Eli on Sunday will be the likes of Wheeler, Jerry, Jones, Halapio and Bisnowaty (elevated from practice squad Saturday).
Smart or not, I am taking the Redskins -3
