Predict the final score of Falcons-Redskins in Week 5

New, comments

Who will win in this battle of the undefeated Atlanta Falcons and .500 Washington Redskins?

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, most of you predicted a win against the Texans, even if most of us wildly underestimated how many points the Falcons would score. This week, you get to put on your prognostication hats again.

This one's at home for the Falcons, which is an advantage baked in to the game. This Washington team has some fearsome pass rushers and a better offense than Houston, so I fully expect them to be in this game all day, and they have the ability to keep it close and pull off a win if they can get the offense clicking. At the same time, Kirk Cousins is prone to mistakes, the Falcons are playing some very good football right now, and there's no one on that roster that can handle Julio Jones all day long. I'm going with a 31-24 win for our beloved birds.
