I think Denver got blown out last time they played in Detroit, though that was with Tim Tebow at QB IIRC. This game worries me as a trap game, especially if Stafford sits out.

Detroit's D is meh this year, and their offense was beaten up badly by MUCH less severe defenses than Denver's this year. Denver's offense may have a number of question marks, but I don't think Detroit has a prayer here. They are going to need an ER for Stafford by the 2nd half.

Man I'm doing shitty, teams that would be lock for win are killing me...



I'll pick the Giants to win tonight, even though they're going to do the opposite of everything I pick them to do. That's how little faith I have in Washington's roster.

I've thought quite a lot about TNF over the course of the past three days and now I am changing my pick to Washington. The only two things I could come up with that favor the Giants are that they play at home and that they have to win because otherwise it will look really bad for them (0-3 overall, 0-2 in the division).

The Redskins have a run-first offense with two good running backs; the Giants defense isn't good against the run. If the Redskins can play their offense and Cousins doesn't have to throw much, they can control this game all the way through. The Giants don't have much of a ground game, so Eli will have to throw a lot; however, the Redskins apparently have a solid pass rush now, so there's a good chance that Eli will be forced into mistakes, also because his O-line isn't particularly good. Beckham having a great game could render all of the aforementioned things void, but I think current stats and form favor the Redskins.

Then there's the fact that Train wreck posted in this thread a few days ago. He wouldn't start to talk big if those were the same old Redskins, and obviously he is about the only person on VGC who watches games of Washington. Everyone else doesn't take the Redskins seriously, even against a terrible Giants team. Train wreck has it in for me, so by picking the Redskins I can potentially avoid the bullying.

Lastly, most people have picked the Giants. I don't have much to lose because, like Arkaign would put it, I am already a dumpster fire in this year's prediction league. But I have a lot to win and I know that I would regret the wrong pick more if it turned out to be New York. So my pick for TNF is Washington.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

In fairness, the Giants' pass defense is as bad, if not worse. They've given up about seven times more yards in the air than on the ground, and the consensus appears to be their rushing yards allowed stat is so low only because their opponents never saw the need to bother running when passing was working out so beautifully.

Long story short, the G-men are playing like Garbage-men on defense.
