The Redskins Are Looking To Defend Their Home FieldThe Sportsman
The Titans were able to come away with a win last week that snapped a four game losing streak, now it’s the Redskins that are on that same track having lost their fourth consecutive game last Sunday they are looking to make the best out of the season they have left and getting a win at home here would really set them on the right road. These are both QB’s that on any other team would be the back-up but due to injuries they have become the starters for their respected franchise.
Tennessee Titans vs. Washington Redskins
1:00 PM ET, October 19, 2014
FedEx Field, Landover, MD
QB Jake Locker so far has completed 65 of his 112 passes for 764 yards and 4 touchdowns but he has 6 interceptions and 4 of those were returned for defensive scores. This Titans teams is still young and has a lot to learn about how to respond late in games. In my opinion Locker must start looking outside of his man receivers and running back to get the ball moving, changing things up and getting others involved in the offense will keep the Redskins guessing. This team has won on the road already so they know what to expect.
Washington lost star QB Robert Griffin III to a foot injury, it is still uncertain when he will be back in playing condition. Mark Cousins has the team yet again after he took over for Griffin last year too. Cousins is an interesting quarterback, when he is on his game they look very good as a team but when he is not, they are terrible, it looks like everything drops off, even on the defensive end.
I think that this game will depend very much on which Kurt Cousins shows up for this game, Los Vegas seems to think that Washington will get the win at home in this one, they are -5.5 with the total of 46.5. I have to agree, I think this is the best game for Washington to get out of their slum and get things back in order. Look for the Redskins defense to do a little scoring as well in this game because of the Titans lack of deep play ability.
