The Detroit Lions are looking to pick up their 2nd win of the season and hoping to keep the Washington Redskins winless. This is a big game for the Redskins to take. Teams don’t want to start out the season at 0-3. That would be a tough hole to dig out of.

Lions Player to Watch: Calvin Johnson

Reggie Bush may not participate in the game this weekend, so the Lions will have to trust in Calvin Johnson even more during the game. Just toss it up to him and he will bring it down.

Redskins Player to Watch: Robert Griffin III

Robert Griffin has to get his team off to a quicker start this time around. The team has had a big hole to dig out of the last couple of games and they cannot afford to play from behind again this week.

Matchup to Watch: Redskins Tackling vs Lions Offense

The Redskins have struggled on defense in their first two games and there has been a lot of concern about the team’s tackling. If Reggie Bush plays in the game, they better be ready to bring him down.

Prediction

The Redksins are due. They are about ready to pick up that first win of the year. They will pick it up against the Detroit Lions this week.

Redksins 35, Lions 28
