Predictions that Matter

I think the Redskins can take Seattle today. DC’s played much better than the Seahawks in recent weeks, and I think Seattle’s NFC West schedule has been pretty weak. I’d feel more confident, though, if not for the whole home field advantage thing. That makes it a very close matchup. Still, no reason a ‘skins fan shouldn’t feel optimistic. As Thomas Boswell writes, “In all, Washington coped with seven games against teams that are in the playoffs and four others against 8–8 teams” wheres “played nine games against teams with a losing record.”

(Along these lines, expect me to miss whichever of this evening’s debates conflicts with the Redskins game)
