    Running is the key this week.

    Perine, Marshall, & #8 combine for 200yds+ rushing, and 3 TD's.

    The defense generates 2 turnovers, including a pick to ice the game from Fuller!

    How often has a team played on back-to-back Thursday's? Granted not many opportunities for that to happen but seems odd.

    Redskins should win this handily but will probably do like they did against NY - lollygag about leaving Dallas in the game the whole nite.
    Washington comes from behind midway in the 4th Quarter because Dallas scores as many points in the first 3 qtr's as they have totaled in the last 3 games.

    Washington 24 - Turds 23

    addendum: A Skins win now locks Philly as the division winner or a win in Seattle. So much for any thought that the Eagles would implode at the end of the year. Hoping for a Seahawks win as it is better for Skins playoff aspirations. Washington holds the tie-breaker over both Seattle & the Rams so a tie with either doesn't matter.

    Key to the game is the pass rush.

    4 sacks (1 a strip sack fumble recovery)

    Key's against the Chargers:

    Rivers and Cousins are pretty much tied in stats. Will the Skins suppress their lust for gaudy passing numbers and attack the worst run defense in the league on the ground? Not if it means Kirk falls behind Phil in the stat columns.
    Key on offense is to run - but I doubt they will especially if they fall behind. Running also negates the very good pass rush of LA that they get from both sides of the line.

    Key on Defense - Can't let Rivers beat you in the short game. Redskins can lock up with their wideouts but Rivers will tear Washington apart with their TE's & Ekeler out of the backfield. This is part of why Rivers has taken the fewest sacks (13) in the season so far. Skins will need to be patient and not overly aggressive against the pass. I'm not sure this will happen - more likely is they'll try to pressure Rivers and leave the soft white underbelly in that 10 yard area from the LOS exposed. LA isn't going to beat you by running the ball down your throat but their short passing game really opens things up as the game wears on.

    Key for the team - Can't make mistakes as the Chargers make very few and capitalize on their opponents errors. Includes your play calling, Jay. Can't squander any opportunities that they get, no foot dragging by the offense at the start of the game like they've done the last couple of games. Special teams cannot be the Special Ed team.

    In a lot of ways the Redskins are almost playing themselves against the Chargers offense, they're very similar on what they do. On defense it's more of what the Skins would like to be versus where LA is; 4th fewest points, 5th against the pass, +11 on turnovers. Washington on the other hand; 3rd most points given up, 13th against the pass & -4 on turnovers.

    Game time -
    Washington will be able to hang in with and possibly lead the Chargers through the middle of the 2nd Qtr. Chargers take a small lead into the half but bury the Skins in the 2nd half.
    Perine will get another 100 yard game but inexplicably Skins only give him 20 totes. Kirk Cousins will get 250 yds but only 1 TD with 1 int and 2 fumble's while taking 6 sacks.
    Rivers will go for 325 yards with 3 TDs and 1 Int while only getting sacked once. Chargers will get 4 takeaways and score on 1 of them.

    A long day at the office with a bright spot here and there but at the end of the game -

    Washington 24 - Los Angeles 44

    Swearinger knocks the ball loose on a big 4th quarter hit and rumbles for the winning TD.

    Kirk scrambles for two huge first downs in 4th quarter, unfortunately were already down 20 points.

    You guys sound traumatized

    We'll compete in this game despite the injuries. Rarely has this team just gotten trucked.

    Game is closer than most people think.

    Shootout on the way I think.

    Perine goes for 100 yards again as he makes a case for starter next year.
    Doctson also goes over 100 yards

    Skins 28 Chargers 24

    I recon this was one of those rare ones that they did get trucked on.

    Save for Breeland's great pick-6 at the end of the game this could'va easily ended 37 to 6
