The Washington Redskins are facing life or death as they head into Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans with a 1-5 record.
The Washington Redskins are coming off their fourth consecutive loss, and they are sitting in dead last in the NFC East with a 1-5 record. They will seek to save their season with a win over the Tennessee Titans.
The Redskins hung tough with the Arizona Cardinals last week, but they ultimately lost, 30-20, after quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a pick-six with 18 seconds remaining.
Cousins struggled as he threw for 354 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions, making Redskins fans hope that starting quarterback Robert Griffin III can return as soon as possible. Running back Alfred Morris was also ordinary as he was held to 41 rushing yards.
However, the Redskins received great production from tight end Jordan Reed, who returned from a hamstring injury and caught eight passes for 92 yards.
Meanwhile, the Titans are coming off a 16-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, which helped them improve to 2-4. They were able to do so with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst making the start.
Running back Bishop Sankey made the start in place of Shonn Greene, who is nursing a hamstring injury. Sankey will start again as Greene has been ruled out.
The Redskins have more offensive weapons, and the Titans do not have a strong enough defense to stop it. The Redskins also have their home crowd this week.
Prediction: Redskins 28, Titans 17
