Redskins VS Saints pregame thoughts & news (Merged)
So with the Tanard Jackson suspension and Brandon Meriweather likely to be less than 100%, I think the Redskins are going to need to score 35 points to win this opener. Drew Brees is going to get his yards and receivers are going to be open. I think Doughty, if he has to play, will be in the right spots, but as we saw two years ago against the Texans, he will get out played by players with better athletic skill sets.
Saints receivers will be running open and then their is Sproles who I don't think we can cover. I think Orakpo and Kerrigan will be ineffective against a top QB like Brees with his ability to slide in the pocket and get the ball downfield.
I think the Saints will put up 30+ and RGIII will have a hard time keeping up in his first professional game. Best case scenario is to limit Brees chances with a great ground game and score TD's when in the red zone.
