    that tasty Jonathan Allen Jersey , except for the traditional opener at Detroit. The NFC North leader from Minnesota visits Ford Field this year, and carries a two-game edge over the Lions. So this is a particularly huge game for the hosts. ”They’re all big,” coach Jim Caldwell says. ”Every single one of them’s a factor in the grand scheme of things. The most important one is the next one. ”Someone else might have a different philosophy. I don’t believe in functioning that way. My experience has been it can work against you more than it works for you when you start looking at the grand scheme of things. `You can’t act as if one game is going to make a complete difference in the season, because you don’t know what’s going to happen the rest of the season. You have no idea.” Judging by Pro Picks’ struggles last week against the spread, having no idea is a familiar concept. Minnesota, ranked fourth in the AP Pro32, is a two-point favorite over No. 12 Detroit. VIKINGS, 23-20 KNOCKOUT LEAGUE TIP The Jaguars had an easy enough time with the Browns. Do we trust the Bengals to do the same? Why would we when we still have 9-1 PHILADELPHIA available? No. 8 Jacksonville (minus 4) at No. 23 Arizona Jaguars favored on road? You bet. And … BEST BET: JAGUARS, 20-10 No. 16 Los Angeles Chargers (plus 3 1-2) at No. 15 Dallas, Thursday Cowboys are rattled, on and off field. Chargers are dangerous. UPSET SPECIAL: CHARGERS, 23-20 No. 30 New York Giants (plus 7) at No. 27 Washington, Thursday night Redskins are ravaged by injuries, yet still should win close one. REDSKINS 21-17 No. 20 Houston (plus 7) at No. 14 Baltimore, Monday night A lot of points for Ravens to give. Of course, they might get another shutout. RAVENS, 13-10 No. 28 Chicago (plus 12 1-2) at No. 1 Philadelphia Not much ”Roar Charles Mann Jersey , Bears, Roar” these days. Try ”Fly, Eagles, Fly.” EAGLES, 27-10 No. 26 Miami (plus 16) at No. 2 New England Patriots coasting toward AFC’s top seed? PATRIOTS, 30-13 No. 19 Green Bay (plus 13 1-2) at No. 3 Pittsburgh Steelers tend to lollygag through these games. STEELERS, 24-13 No. 18 Buffalo (plus 9) at No. 11 Kansas City Jim Kelly at QB next? Doug Flutie? Chiefs need rebound game. CHIEFS, 19-12 No. 5 New Orleans (plus 2 1-2) at No. 6 Los Angeles Rams Huge game in NFC seedings race between surprise division leaders. RAMS, 24-23 No. 25 Tampa Bay (plus 8 1-2) at No. 9 Atlanta Bucs struggle on road, though Falcons not that comfy in new digs. FALCONS, 26-16 No. 7 Carolina (minus 4 1-2) at No. 24 New York Jets Panthers need to be careful here with Saints, Vikings on their schedule next. Could be trap game. PANTHERS, 26-20 No. 13 Tennessee (minus 4) at No. 29 Indianapolis Look for bounce back from Marcus Mariota. TITANS, 20-13 No. 10 Seattle (minus 7) at No. 31 San Francisco Like Redskins, Seahawks very banged-up, but good enough to survive this week. SEAHAWKS, 24-14 No. 27 Denver (plus 5) at No. 21 Oakland This looked like a blockbuster when schedule came out. No more. RAIDERS Colt McCoy Jersey , 23-13 No. 32 Cleveland (plus 8) at No. 22 Cincinnati Bengals thinking wild card. Browns thinking ”when does this end?” BENGALS, 20-13 — 2017 RECORD: Last week: Against spread (6-8). Straight up (8-6) Season Totals: Against spread (73-77-3). Straight up: (96-63) Best Bet: 7-4 against spread, 9-2 straight up. Upset special: 7-4 against spread, 7-4 straight up — Redskins Fall To Indianapolis Colts In Home Opener, 21-9 [Redskins fans: Sign up for our weekly Redskins survey, 3 quick questions each week]Washington had their fits with Indianapolis throughout the day, struggling on both offense and defense in a variety of ways. The first half was not kind, the interior rush for the Colts wreaked havoc among the guards and center for the Redskins offensive line. The best rushing attack for the Redskins was jet sweeps to Jamison Crowder, leading the Redskins with 2 rushes for 29 yards after two quarters of play. The running backs for Washington combined for seven carries for two yards. It was a very questionable half for Jay Gruden in regards to play calling, it seemed his strategy was to create misdirection, causing the defense to pursue to one side and run in the opposite direction. Hence the decision to dial Crowder’s number multiple times as a ball carrier, and sending him on jet sweep looks a few times. The Redskins finished the first half with 121 total yards offensively and just three points, mainly due to lack of a true ground game, pass protection, and missed opportunities which trickled into the second half as well. Defensively the Redskins started out just as poorly as the Redskins offense, Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton connected often against the Redskins secondary. In addition to solid protection for Luck, the Colts were able to run the ball effectively too Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , allowing them to do whatever they wanted early. Granted, the Redskins defense settled down later into the half, generating pressure late and even forcing a turnover. However, more often than not the Colts have found themselves in favorable down and distances in key situations, 100 percent in the redone and over 50 percent on third down conversions. Washington’s second half started off stronger than the first, but it was not strong enough to overcome the mental errors offensively and defensively. Washington forced Andrew Luck to commit two turnovers but the offense failed to turn them into touchdowns, settling for just six points. As a result of no touchdowns, the Colts responded to a Redskins field goal with a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to essentially put away the Redskins with just a 12-point deficit. In the end, the Colts executed greatly on both sides of the ball and that cannot be taken away from them. They were able to neutralize the Redskins ground game (Crowder the leading rusher for Washington), consistently generated interior pressure, and made Alex Smith look uncomfortable all game. Again, the Redskins leading rusher was a wide receiver today, that is how bad the ground game was. Offensively the use of rub routes and pick-plays created confusion amongst the Redskins secondary, and protection was solid for the most part allowing Luck safe pockets to throw from. As the Redskins head into a tough week three match-up against the Green Bay Packers, it is vital that the Redskins address the offensive struggles the first two weeks. Washington has not scored a touchdown in six quarters and if the Redskins plan to come out of September with a 2-1 record, they need to come out of this offensive funk and help their defense out in a big way.
