Washington vs Cleveland: Preseason NFL Monday Night Football
Redskins look to build on rock solid preseason trend
Washington fans get their second close up and personal look at the Jay Gruden era in the District tonight. Leaving the dysfunctional Shanahan family dynasty in the dust, Robert Griffin III & Crew are more than ready to turn the page. The one thing that we don't see changing tonight is the trend that has Washington on a 11-2 straight up winning run over their last 13 preseason games. The Redskins opened with a 23-6 home win over New England - thanks in large part to 177 total rushing yards. Though the offensive play-makers won't see as many snaps this week as they will next week, the Redskins loaded rushing attack will control the clock in this contest. The 'Skins are enjoying a second straight week of home cooking - and their bet365 price is right.
The Johnny Football Circus hits the road for a second straight week
Since we are sick of the "Adventures of Johnny" we'll wish him luck and hope he lives up to his hype. We are of the opinion the QB battle in Cleveland hurts the Browns tonight as everyone who gets a shot under center will be cloaked in the pressure to be perfect - with limited talent around them. Washington owned a 39:12 to 20:48 time of possession advantage over the Patriots and the Browns will have limited offensive snaps in this contest as well. Cleveland opened their preseason schedule with a 13-12 loss to the Lions in Detroit and they are now 6-7 S/U over their last 13 preseason games. Back-to-back exhibition road games can't be easy.
NFL Prediction: Roll with the Redskins and a 500 unit ATS wager at the bet365 online sportsbook.
