Cincinnati Bengals vs Washington Redskins Pick, Prediction, and Odds
This Sunday in one of the more interesting week 3 NFL match-up's, the Cincinnati Bengals travel to take on the Washington Redskins in a game between two 1-1 teams who have a very high ceiling that they could potentially reach this season. While the Bengals are coming off of an impressive 2011 season that featured them getting a postseason berth and being led by two young players in AJ Green and Andy Dalton. These two are connecting once again, and we could be in for a big year for the Bengals if they can fix a few of the small issues plaguing them. The Redskins on the other hand have the explosive rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III who has had an incredible start to the year. The Redskins could very well be 2-0 right now, but lost in a heartbreaking fashion last week to the St. Louis Rams after a dumb penalty. Now the two sides meet in Washington for the home opener for the Redskins at 1:00pm EST.
The Bengals have a new running back in BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and they seem to be pretty set on trying to split up their offense between the pass and the run well. To this point they've done a good job of it, but they are going to need to keep the Redskins on their toes if they want to beat a much improved defense. Remember though, the Redskins defense has suffered some tough losses though, and I'm expecting the Bengals to attempt to target these potential holes in their defense.

The Redskins on the other hand are going to stick with what is working best right now, which is a heavy dose of Robert Griffin III. Griffin has been absolutely phenomenal, and I think that he's going to give the Bengals fits. The Redskins seem to be a completely different team this year than in year's past, mainly due to the fact that they have a quarterback who has the potential to change the game by himself. They should also be getting Pierre Garcon back from injury, which will be nice as the Bengals secondary has given up quite a few yards to receivers this year.

Beating a team in their home opener is never an easy task. And with that being said, the potential that this Redskins team has really has the fans of Washington ready to make some noise. I think that the Redskins have the potential to show up in a big way in their home opener, and that their fans are going to be louder than you could possibly imagine. It's going to be a tough day for Cincinnati, and while I think they are a strong team, I'm expecting the Redskins to win it by 4-7 points and to cover the spread here as well.
