Redskins vs. 49ers: Riggo’s Rag Week 6 Prediction Duel
Matt Valdovinos and Ian Cummings square up once again, this time in Week 6 of the Prediction Duel. Who got it right? Take a look, first at Matt’s prediction, and then Ian’s.
After a tough loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City, the Redskins will look to bounce back at home versus a struggling San Francisco team. Led by former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, will flash in Week 6. But this battle is ultimately the Redskins’ to lose.
I think the Niners will present an unexpected challenge. The 49ers have forced nearly every one of their games to be closely contested matchups. In their last four games, they’ve lost by a grand total of 11 points. Some fans think this should be a blowout, but I’m expecting different.
The 49ers will pull out all the stops in this game, Shanahan will call his best game of his young coaching career, and in the process, he’ll give Jay Gruden and Co. a run for their money. However, as long as the offense doesn’t turn the ball over, and the defense plays smart, the Redskins should come out victorious in this game.
One player to watch out for in this game is rookie Samaje Perine, who will most likely be getting the start with Rob Kelley looking like a long shot. I think he has his first big game of the season and finishes with over 100 yards and two touchdowns. If the Redskins get the running game going ,they’ll be in prime position to win a close one. I’m going with a final score of 28-20.
