Except Tennessee brings a much more competent offense with a RB on a tear. They don't put up a ton of yards or points, but they also don't lose the turnover battle like the Jaguars do.

Vegas has this game at Titans -10 with a 37 point over/under. That means they see this sucker ending 23 - 13 or something like that. If the Titans don't turn it over more than we do, that will be the result.

We need to force fumbles and get picks to have a chance because our offense can't move the ball on a defense like this.
The last line is critical, when we were winning that is what we were doing. I know the RB is on a tear, but the defense can stop a one threat back, they did it often early on. And Tennessee doesn't have a ton of offensive receiving weapons. Mariota has 11 TD to 8 INT this year, he also has 9 fumbles. Our backfield can cover that type of production, and get turnovers based on our pass rush.

The only reason we lose this by more than a FG is JG doesn't have them ready for a Saturday game. Otherwise this team will win or lose in a nailbiter at the end. (that said I will be walking my dog in case it's a blowout I don't want to watch)

I hope you're right and it will be a Merry Christmas if you are. As they say, that's why they play the games.

Here's the thing, the curse is in a no-win situation this week. If it leads to us losing we don't make the playoffs and we get an even better draft pick and if we win then we have a shot to get into the playoffs so this week the curse is just playing the odds for next week when it can deal us another soul crushing 8-8 season.

Thus we win this week and next in a fashion that brings Skins nation to its feet and full of hope. Only to be dashed when KC leads the vikings over the bears next week.

I don't know if id call 430 game in Tennessee a Prime time game, more like happy hour in the sticks. My suggestion is drink up.

I'm always one to hope for a win. But I have a really hard time seeing us winning this game.

Our offense really didn't look good against the Jags and I don't think the Titans are far behind them defensively.

So we have to hope for a great game by our D, could happen but they would really have to make Mariota look like Cody Kessler, and he's not. He's no Aaron Rodgers either but he's still way better than Kessler. And the offense around him is not what Kessler had around him either.

Now, I didn't have much more hope we could beat Jacksonville so hopefully they prove me wrong again.

If the defense hold Henry under 70 yards rushing the Redskins will win this game...Gruden has to do a good coaching job and somehow outcoach Mike Vrabel in order for the Redskins to overcome the Titans on the road...

Worth noting the Skins have won outright 6 games as a dog this year.

I don’t know but they were getting 7.5 last week which definitely seems ridiculous now

Re: The Josh Johnson Thread

I’ll say this...Josh Johnson has been extremely solid. Colt shouldn’t play this week, josh earned the start over colt.

Josh Johnson play solidified the move over anybody else. Sanchise was a retard Bruce/Danny move...josh has been a plesent surprise. Tennessee is a fucking good defense period. period. Josh and jay combo has been good. QBR again great this week mid 70s.

Re: The Josh Johnson Thread

I feel ok if we go into next season with JJ and Colt with Alex easing back in if he can. Still would like to get a rookie in here too of course. But in the short run there’s a lot to like about JJ.
