My Prediction: Redskins 23 - Panthers 24 

HTTR....please prove me wrong. 

What I'll be watching: Passion and Effort. It's obvious the team is imploding, but at 2-2, there is still hope this team can SOMEHOW pull it together. The players have to be confused by the front office moves to bring in a "consultant" coach. Will that undermine the players efforts? Perhaps...but if the team plays flat, it will be obvious this season is over.
