Redskins Titans Betting – Redskins, Titans Looking To Rebound Sunday
Even with the opposition team losing two quarterbacks to injury, the Tennessee Titans couldn’t clinch a victory in wide receiver Randy Moss’ debut. After consecutive losses away from home, the Titans will be happy to return home to LP Field this weekend to take on the Washington Redskins, who were devastated by Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles in a 59-28 blowout loss Sunday night.
Head coach Jeff Fisher and the Titans’ offense will undoubtedly be studying that tape from the Redskins’ Monday night loss, hoping to capitalize on the abilities of quarterback Vince Young the same way that the Eagles relied on Vick. Tennessee has now dropped consecutive decisions, and when you factor in the bye week it will be more than a month since their last victory when they take to the field Sunday.
Why To Bet On The Redskins?
After a humbling defeat at the hands of the Eagles, there is nowhere to go but up for the Redskins. Washington head coach Mike Shanahan explained to the media after the game how big of an embarrassment the loss was to the franchise, and how he intends to get the team back on track. Despite losing consecutive games, the Redskins have registered at least 25 points in each of them, so the offense isn’t the football betting problem. Washington’s success has depended on a mediocre defense relying on turnovers to get the ball back for the offense, and after watching Vick run wild the Redskins should be motivated to make sure it doesn’t happen two weeks in a row.
Why To Bet On The Titans?
Despite the acquisition of Moss the Titans are still a run-first team, and that should be a lot easier to convey against a Redskins’ defense that ranks 25th against the rush. Fisher will have Young and running back Chris Johnson in a variety of formations looking to confuse Washington, and as soon as they commit heavily to the pass that will open things up for Moss for the big play. The Titans are playing .500 football at home this season, but their last win came against Philadelphia, and they are in a desperate situation now.
How The Game Will Play Out
The Redskins have to come out with more punch than they did in the loss to Philadelphia, but even if they do this is a team that looked tired in the biggest spotlight of them all, and it may be a case of poor conditioning and lack of desire. The Titans on the other hand have taken a workmanlike approach to the season, and with a crucial AFC South division match up looming the following week at the Houston Texans, it will be critical for Tennessee to get back on track with a win. Look for the Titans to jump out to an early lead against a disheartened Redskins’ team, before sealing it in a close finish in the fourth.
