National Media Predictions: Raptors-Wizards Series

National Media Predictions: Raptors-Wizards Series

After Wednesday night's loss to the Magic, the Washington Wizards fell to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and earned themselves a first round match-up against the top-seeded Toronto Raptors. 

The Wizards were without John Wall for all four regular season games against Toronto, which the teams split 2-2. 

It's that time of the year that everyone has an opinion, so here are your national media predictions for the Wizards-Raptors series: 

Sporting News:

Raptors over the Wizards, 4 games to 2.

CBSSports.com:

6 out of 6 experts pick the Raptors to advance.

USA Today:

4 out of 4 experts pick the Raptors to advance.

Bleacher Report:

Raptors over the Wizards in 4-game sweep.

The Big Lead:

5 out of 5 experts pick the Raptors.

Oh, and he may not be considered "national media", but Bradley Beal also has some thoughts on the matchup.

As an 8-seed taking on the top team in the Eastern Conference, the Wizards are facing an uphill battle, and the consensus experts predictions reflect that. Still, this should be a fun series. As Beal himself pointed out:

"Toronto is a tough opponent, but so are we."

Ryan Kerrigan marries in California

Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan married his fiancé Saturday in California, and the couple looks beyond happy on the 'gram.

Kerrigan and his now wife, Jessica Mazura married in Huntington Beach, Calif. — she's from nearby Newport Beach.

"After a lot of individual growing into their young adult lives and knowing 'of' each other for quite some time, their paths officially crossed when the stars were aligned and the timing was perfect for both of them. As in many romance movies, a 'hello'was all it took," their official wedding website says.

Mr. & Mrs. Kerrigan ❤️

Their two dogs, Franklin and George, were part of the wedding. The two English Bulldogs looked amazing in their wedding suits.

Kerrigan, who is from Indiana and played at Purdue University, was selected by the Redskins in the first round with the sixteenth overall pick in the 2011 draft, and has been with the team ever since.

Three Redskins were named to the Pro Bowl back in December, but Kerrigan will be the Redskins’ sole representative who played.

Last season, he finished with double digit sacks — for the second year in a row — with 13. He has been elected to the Pro Bowl three times in his career, and has not missed a regular season game in his seven seasons.
