Game Preview: Redskins at Panthers - Open Thread

New, comments

Predictions: Redskins 17-13. I think this will be snoozer but I think special teams will legitimately be a factor. Carolina has the 2nd worst punting unit in the NFL averaging 40.1 yards per kick. Their punt coverage is an NFL worst allowing a colossal 24.3 yards PER PUNT RETURN. To put that into perspective, the Redskins are only allowing 6.8 yards per punt return. Speedy Banks...do your thang. Redskins must give this offensive all the field advantage help they can get.

Kickoff 1 PM EST
TV 550623_medium
Announcers: Chris Myers. Tim Ryan
