NFL Week 16 Picks: Can The Bengals Get Past The Broncos?

Mario Mergola makes picks against the spread for every week 16 NFL matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins (+9)*

Every game appears to be worse for the Redskins. Losers of six straight games — four of which by double-digits — Washington will, once again, turn to Robert Griffin III to replace the injured Colt McCoy. It is worth nothing that McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins due to ineffectiveness, who was filling in for Griffin, due to injury. However it’s laid out, the fact that Washington will have three quarterbacks start at least four games this year is a direct factor in the team’s 3-11 record.

Philadelphia, starting a former backup quarterback of its own, has dropped back-to-back games and lost its lead in the NFC East. At least, they get to face the lowly Redskins to get back on track, right?

Not so fast.

Just because it appears as if Robert Griffin III has completely lost the ability to play quarterback in the National Football League, doesn’t mean that he can’t for one more game. In fact, this might be his audition for a new team next year. With ten career touchdown passes against the Eagles — his highest total against any team – Griffin’s best chance to prove his worth against a defense allowing the fourth-most touchdown passes and fifth-most yards through the air.

In the end, Philadelphia wins out, beating the Redskins by six, but Washington beats the spread.
