WR Jamison Crowder (31 rec, 391 yards, 3 TDs) caught seven passes for 105 yards. Crowder and DeSean Jackson have combined for 759 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Pierre Garcon has 30 receptions. Washington hopes to get back TE Jordan Reed (33 rec, 316 yards, 2 TD) who has missed two games due to a concussion. Washington’s ground game averages 113.7 rushing yards per game (15th). RB Matt Jones (99 car, 460 yards, 3 TDs) rushed for a measly 27 yards on ten carries last week.

Head coach Jay Gruden, who served the Bengals’ offensive coordinator for three seasons (2011-13) under head coach Marvin Lewis before coming to Washington, is facing his former team for the first time.
“We did a lot of great things over there, we thought, but come game time it’s going to be another game that we have to win,” Gruden said after Wednesday’s practice. “They’re very well-coached, they have a good football team. … It will be a great test for us.”
Why Bet The Cincinnati Bengals To Beat Washington
The Bengals improved to 3-4 SU and 2-4-1 ATS after beating the Cleveland Browns by a 31-17 score. They average 20.0 points per game (23rd) and allow 23.1 points per game (18th).
QB Andy Dalton (2065 yards, 8 TDs & 2 INTs) is completing 67.5% of his passes for 2,065 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Dalton has two or less touchdown passes in nine straight games. Last week, he completed 19 of 28 passes for 308 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns. Cincinnati averages 276.4 passing yards per game (4th).
“I think things have changed,” Dalton said when asked about the Redskins having the advantage of Gruden knowing the Bengals’ offense. “We’ve got some new players — obviously there’s still some guys that are still here from when he was here — but I feel like we’ve added a few guys. I think things have changed enough that I’m not too worried about that.”

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The public is backing the Bengals, which is a little surprising, as they’re not the biggest public team. Sharps are split on this game, as the line has held steady. It’s not easy to handicap which team will fare better after the trip overseas.
The Bengals lead the series 5-4. They won the last meeting 38-31 in 2012 and haven’t lost to Washington since 1991, winning three straight.
My final score prediction is Washington 23, Cincinnati 20.
