Skins Hold 1/2 Game Lead On Packers

The Carolina Panthers and the Washington Redskins meet on Monday at FedExField. The Redskins will be looking to hold onto the last NFC Playoff spot, as they hold a 1/2 game lead over the Green Bay Packers. The Redskins tie with the Bengals in week eight is difference maker.

Oddsmakers currently have the Redskins listed as 7-point favorites versus the Panthers. The game’s total is sitting at 51.

Washington won its last outing, a 27-22 result against the Philadelphia Eagles on December 11. The Redskins covered in that game as a -2-point favorite, while the 49 combined points took the game OVER the total. The Redskins were glad to have the extra day for the Monday night game. That may give linebackers Su’a Cravens (elbow) and Will Compton (knee sprain) time to recover from injuries.  Mack Brown entered the concussion protocol based on a hit last week against Philadelphia.
