Wins and Losses in 2013
The Redskins have the hardest schedule in there division next year (based on 2012 opponents records) but I still believe they can win the NFC East. Here is a break down of their opponents in 2013:
Dallas - We had no problem with the Cowboys in either of our two games against them this year and in the last game our quarterback wasn't even healthy. With a heathy RGIII we should have no problem beating the Cowboys at home and in Dallas in 2013.
N.Y. Giants - We split with the Giants last year in the two games against them but got robbed with a last minute 75 yard TD pass in the game we lost. So with an improved secondary in 2013 and a weaker Giants team I believe we can win both at home and in NYC in 2013.
Philadelphia - We destroyed the Eagles in our two games against them and they are obviously rebuilding there team with a younger roster as well as a rookie coach. I don't see us having any problem winning both at home and in Philadelphia in 2013.
Chicago - The Bears were decimated by injuries in the second half of the season and missed the playoffs as a result, but, when healthy, they are a very good team. I think we loose a close game.
Detroit - Calvin Johnson is an amazing player, but one player doesn't make a team. I think as a team we are more talented than Detroit and we win a close game.
Kansas City - I believe the Chiefs will be a much improved team in 2013 but not good enough to beat us at home. Redskins win.
San Diego - San Diego is in a bit of a rebuilding year and I don't think they are all that talented. I think we win a close game.
San Francisco - The 49ers are coming off a Superbowl season and are a very young talented team and I think they beat us bad.
Dallas - see above
N.Y. Giants - see above
Philadelphia - see above
Green Bay - The Packers are a very talented team and has the best quarterback in the league in Aaron Rodgers. On top of that we have to travel to Lambeau Field, I think we loose a shoot out.
Minnesota - The Vikings made the playoffs last year but their quarterback, Christian Ponder, is not very good, and to win in this league consistently you have to have a good quarterback. The Redskins win a close game.
Denver - The Broncos had the best record in the league last year and have arguably the best quarterback to every play the game behind center in Peyton Manning. They also very seldom loose in Denver so I think the Redskins loose a good game.
Oakland - The Raiders are not a very good team. They aren't very good on defense or offense. I think the Redskins handle them and win the game.
Atlanta - The Falcons were tied with the Broncos with the best record in the NFL last year and they do not loose in Atlanta. The Redskins loose this game.
If my predictions are correct than we finish the year 11-5 and win the division and go back to the playoffs. All this is pending on RGIII coming back healthy and ready to go. I can't wait until next season. Hail to the Redskins!
