Burner’s Burning Questions – 2012 Season Predictions

The new season is about to begin and the Redskins are facing a tough sixteen game schedule. In the final offseason edition of BBQ for 2012, we will make a game by game prediction. BBQ would love to see a 16-0 record, but let’s see if we can make some accurate forecasts.

September 9 – Redskins at Saints
Facing Drew Brees in his house is never easy, but the Redskins have had some degrees of success in the Bayou.
Saints 38 Redskins 27.

September 16 – Redskins at Rams
The two teams with the blockbuster trade that brought Robert Griffin, III to the Redskins will face off. The Redskins secure their first win of the season.
Redskins 31 Rams 10.

September 23 – Bengals at Redskins
The first home game of the season is a memorable one for the team as they get RG3’s first win at FedEx.
Redskins 23 Bengals 17.

September 30 – Redskins at Buccaneers
The Redskins face a determined, but young Bucs team and pull away in the second half.
Redskins 33 Buccaneers 20.

October 7 – Falcons at Redskins
A spirited effort by both teams is decided by a late field goal and the Redskins absorb their first home loss of the season.
Falcons 24 Redskins 21.

October 14 – Vikings at Redskins
The visitors from the North make a pilgrimage to FedEx and lose a shootout to the home team.
Redskins 31 Vikings 28.

October 21 – Redskins at Giants
Payback can be fun if you are on the winning team. That will not be the case in North Jersey as the Redskins lose a tough one to Giants.
Giants 22 Redskins 20.

October 28 – Redskins at Steelers
RG3 learns that some teams are very tough on defense and that losing streak can happen in the NFL.
Steelers 28 Redskins 17.

November 4 – Panthers at Redskins
This will be billed as a matchup of young QBs who will be superstars in this sport for years to come. Round one will go to the soph.
Panthers 37 Redskins 34.

November 11 – Bye
The Redskins have a record of 4-5 at the break. The team has definitely improved over the previous season and the framework for a successful future is being established.

November 18 – Eagles at Redskins
The Redskins come well rested to FedEx and pull off an upset of the playoff bound Eagles.
Redskins 26 Eagles 21.

November 22 – Redskins at Cowboys
A Thanksgiving feast is always tasty when football is on the tube. However, the feast will not be as enjoyable for the Redskins.
Cowboys 20 Redskins 19.

December 3 – Giants at Redskins
The Redskins finally get revenge for the Mara-led cap penalty craziness. A second half surge proves to be the difference.
Redskins 34 Giants 21.

December 9 – Ravens at Redskins
The I-95 battle proves to be a tough experience for the Redskins as they face a team that is poised to make a run at the Super Bowl.
Ravens 17 Redskins 15.

December 16 – Redskins at Browns
The Redskins find that the trip to cold and snowy Cleveland is to their liking as RG3 provides a hot-handed spark.
Redskins 45 Browns 10.

December 23 – Redskins at Eagles
The Eagles are making a final push toward the playoffs and a determined effort sinks the Redskins at the Linc.
Eagles 22 Redskins 17.

December 30 – Cowboys at Redskins
The Cowboys look to extend their winning streak over the Redskins as they try to lock up a wild card spot in the playoffs. The Redskins lose on a late field goal.
Cowboys 23 Redskins 21.

The Redskins finish with a record of 7-9, but the foundation is set for the future as the Redskins will begin a series successful runs at the playoffs in 2013 and beyond.

This is the final offseason edition of BBQ. The weekly BBQ format will return each Friday during the season.
