When the Washington Redskins lost to the New York Jets at home last week, they allowed them to remain in contention in the AFC East. Now the Redskins can do the Jets another favor if they can find a way to take down the New England Patriots, which currently hold a two-game lead on New York in their division race. At 4-8, Washington is already out of the playoff race in the NFC, but they can still play the role of spoiler if they can find a way to raise their level of play at home this sports betting weekend.

NFL Betting Lines: New England Patriots – 9

After winning three straight against the Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and Philadelphia Eagles in such dominant fashion, it was a big of a surprise that the Patriots allowed the winless Indianapolis Colts to stay within a touchdown until the final whistle. While they got the victory, New England didn’t come close to covering their 20-point spread.

The story of the Patriots’ season has been the offense’s ability to score at will, and the defense’s inability to stop anyone from scoring at will. To date their style has paid off for them so far, but if New England is going to have any shot at contending with some of the top teams in the AFC, they are going to have to find a way to play better defense. While the Patriots rank 10th against the run, that number is skewed because teams have simply opted to beat them through the air, as they rank last in the NFL against the pass. New England plays just one team with a winning record through their final four games, so now is the time for their defense to come together.

While the Redskins have struggled to win games this season, they have had a lot of close calls including an overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys at home three weeks ago. Their 19 points against the Jets was their lowest output in three weeks, and if Rex Grossman gets the start at quarterback again, he could air it out without having to worry as much about turnovers against a soft Patriots’ defense. Brady and the Patriots’ offense however has the potential to put up big numbers, so the ninth-ranked pass defense will be heavily relied on for Washington.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Although the Patriots have been winning games, they haven’t been dominating them in convincing fashion, and now head on the road for consecutive contests away from home against a desperate opponent with nothing to lose. Washington will throw everything they have at a suspect New England defense, and while they won’t win the game, they should be able to cover the spread according to the online sportsbooks.
