Washington Redskins vs. Cincinnati Bengals – Week 8 Picks And Predictions


Cincinnati Bengals have some catching up to do after a bad start to the season. Luckily, they had Browns on their schedule after two tough losses to Patriots and Cowboys. Now, they will go up against a mediocre Redskins team at home. Can they keep winning to put the pressure on the Steelers, or will Washington do a favor to the Dallas Cowboys with a big road win in Cincy?

Redskins had the lead in Detroit with under two minutes left on the clock. Cousins scored a rushing TD to put them in front, but their defense couldn’t make the final stop. We could see them being highly inconsistent just like the rest of the team. One week they show up, the next round they take a game off. You just can’t trust these Redskins.

Bengals defense is much better than it showed in these first seven games. They need to step up so that this team can show it’s full potential. This is a Playoff-caliber squad and Andy Dalton has not been the problem in Cincinnati. Their offensive line has had some struggles, while their defensive line hasn’t been great.


Even though Cincinnati has the worse record here, they are a better football team and should be favored to win this game at home. We are going to pick them against the Redskins on their home turf. Bengals’ defense will make their presence felt and will lead this squad to a 26:14 victory.
