Redskins (3-10) @ Giants (4-9)
Sunday, 1:00 p.m.
We’re changing up the format of the prediction post here. I’m going to give my take and then turn it over to the fans who sent me their predictions via Twitter (@Rich_TandlerCSN) and on the Real Redskins Facebook page.
So what will happen?
If you’re reading this I don’t have to tell you that the Redskins haven’t been playing well lately. They last won a game on October 27. The Giants were on a similar skid, racking up seven straight losses before they got well against the Titans last week.
Back when the Giants were playing well—they were 3-2 at one point—Eli Manning was in rhythm. He had one of his best games of the season against Washington, throwing for 300 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately for the Redskins, his big weakness is throwing interceptions (13 on the season) but Washington can’t pick off passes to save its life (4).
It’s hard to see the Redskins winning this one. Yes, the Redskins face long odds in a game against a 4-9 team that has been floundering since the beginning of October. In the words of Pierre Garçon, “This is where we’ve come?”
Giants 27, Redskins 10
(predictions record this year 8-5)

Some positive posts from the Redskins point of view. Hey, it's the NFL, any given Sunday and all that. Many of the Redskins win predictions had RG3 coming in to save the day.
@Rich_TandlerCSN 33-17 Giants, McCoy gets sacked 5 times — Matt Boyer (@mattwboyer) December 12, 2014
Very little faith in the Redskins' pass protection is certainly understandable given that they have given up 29 sacks on the last five games.
@Rich_TandlerCSN Oh. Uh...NYG 24 Skins 17, then. Skins O doesnt look quite as hopeless as last week, but still not enough.

We had some close loss predictions. Again, anything is possible.
@Rich_TandlerCSN Odell Beckham 28, Redskins 3.

Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants' sensational rookie wide receiver, was not playing for the Giants when they beat the Redskins 45-14 in Week 4. Things could get ugly is he has a big game.
Here are a few more of the better contributions. Thanks for all of them.
