The Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins meet Sunday in week 12 NFL action at FedEx Field.
The Detroit Lions could use a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Detroit Lions have lost three straight road games. Matthew Stafford is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Stafford has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 16 games. Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr. have combined for 1,386 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns while Danny Amendola has 39 receptions. The Detroit Lions ground game is averaging 98.7 yards per contest, and Kerryon Johnson leads the way with 308 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Detroit is allowing 27.2 points and 412.8 yards per game. Tracy Walker leads the Detroit Lions with 62 tackles, Trey Flowers has five sacks and Darius Slay has one interception.
The Washington Redskins also need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Washington Redskins have lost all five home games this season. Dwayne Haskins is completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 498 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions. Case Keenum and Haskins have combined for 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 842 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Paul Richardson has 27 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 85.9 yards per contest, and Adrian Peterson leads the way with 516 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 25.3 points and 369.5 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the Washington Redskins with 83 tackles, Matt Ioannidis has 4.5 sacks and Quinton Dunbar has three interceptions.
The Lions are 10-4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. NFC and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Redskins are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. NFC, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Washington and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Redskins last 7 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Lions last 5 games overall.
The Detroit Lions are 4-4-1 ATS in their last nine games as a road favorite. The Washington Redskins are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a home underdog. The Detroit Lions defense continues to fall apart and I'm not sure you can trust the offense with Jeff Driskel at quarterback, even if he's played OK in his first two games. The Washington Redskins have scored no more than 17 points in each of their last eight games and just got blown out by the New York Jets. While I don't love the Lions, it's tough to back the Redskins with any confidence based on what we saw last week. I'll pinch my nose and eat the chalk with the Lions.
