Redskins vs. Lions: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Time and Predictions

The Washington Redskins look to avoid a 0-3 start against the 1-1 Detroit Lions. The Redskins are 22-4 against the Lions and are undefeated at home against the team.

Here is a full breakdown of Sunday’s game.

Where: FedEx Field

When:  September 22, 2013, 1:00 PM ET

Watch:  Fox

Live Stream:  NFL Mobile with Verizon

Redskins Player to Watch: Bacarri Rambo

After getting torched by Aaron Rodgers and company last weekend, Bacarri Rambo will strive to have a better game against the Lions.

That may be difficult against Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson, but with Reggie Bush out, Rambo won’t have to worry about a receiving threat out of the backfield.

Lions Player to Watch: Matthew Stafford

Aaron Rodgers put up 480 yards against Washington’s secondary last week and Stafford looks to do the same thing. This will be more difficult with Reggie Bush out, but Calvin Johnson can torch the defense and put up big numbers.

I like Stafford as a starter in 10+ team fantasy leagues this week, especially against a porous secondary.

Matchup to Watch: DeAngelo Hall vs. Calvin Johnson

DeAngelo Hall has struggled in the first two games against DeSean Jackson and Jordy Nelson, respectively. He will be expected to turn it around this week, but that’s hard to ask out of anyone who’s covering Calvin Johnson.

Expect Johnson to have a big game, but the Redskins and DeAngelo Hall can focus more on Johnson with Reggie Bush out.


The Redskins haven’t lost to Detroit at home in the team’s history. I expect that streak to continue, with Washington finally getting a win this year, avoiding a 0-3 start. Redskins 24, Lions 21
