Redskins-Falcons: Experts Pick ‘Em

For the second straight week, the Washington Redskins will take the field as underdogs — at least in Vegas.

And, for the second straight week, the Redskins will try to prove those same oddsmakers wrong.

The Redskins (2-2) tomorrow play host to the Atlanta Falcons (4-0) at 1 p.m. at FedExField. The Falcons’ offensive attack that includes quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner, tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White will perhaps be the Washington defense’s toughest test yet in 2012.

Washington’s offense isn’t too shabby itself, though. Several NFL experts and analysts are predicting a shootout tomorrow at FedExField:

Thanks, Mike Freeman. You’re the only one at CBS Sports who thinks the Redskins can pull this one out over the Falcons:

————————————————-

ESPN.com’s experts — well, all but three of them — also think the Falcons will come away with the road victory tomorrow. Thanks for the confidence, Adam Schefter, Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson:

————————————————-

FoxSports.com lists Atlanta as a 2.5-point favorite tomorrow. Only Ryan Fowler thinks the Redskins will come out victorious:

————————————————-

Last week, the folks at NFL.com were the only panel group out of all the experts listed here that had a majority picking the Redskins. This week? Not so much:

————————————————-

ProFootballTalk/NBC’s Mike Florio certainly bought in to tomorrow’s game being a shootout:

————————————————-

Sports Illustrated columnist Peter King didn’t think the Redskins were going to win last week against the Buccaneers, and he doesn’t think they’re going to do any better this week against the Falcons:
