Both of these teams have been awful to open the season, but the Redskins have had some tough opponents to open the season and they have some talent to beat a team like the Dolphins. The Redskins have an abundance of QBs that can make plays between Keenum, Haskins, and McCoy which could be a difference-maker against a Dolphins defense that is allowing 40.8 PPG. The Redskins have given up points on the defensive side of the ball, but they are constantly playing with their back against the walls due to poor offensive output. The Redskins will look to get pressure on Rosen, and they should be able to force turnovers in the backend of the defense. Final Score Prediction, Washington Redskins win and cover ATS 27-17.
