This is the most intriguing of all the playoff matchups because the Skins have been so much better than expected and the Packers so much worse.
Kick off is set for 4:40 PM ET with Green Bay looking to prove that they are still a team that needs to be reckoned with.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay has to be the most disappointing team to make the playoffs…ever. Even though they are in it feels like their record should be 6-10 doesn’t it.
They are a super intriguing small road dog but at times they have looked so bad and there probably is not one better out there that has not been burned by this group.
That would include last Sunday when they were just three point favourites at home with everything on the line. They still looked lifeless which is just as bad a quality as poor play this time of year.
It might not be fair but this one is probably on Aaron Rodgers. If he can play the way he has so many times before.
This is a very interesting game to try and handicap the Packers and I am curious to see how the number moves.
I know the Redskins are not great but they won their division by two games, something only two other leaders exceeded. And they finished with a winning record when nobody thought they would. They are solid.
A big part of that is the fact that Kirk Cousins took over this team and didn’t look back. You probably didn’t realize but he finished with more than 4000 yards passing and 29 touchdowns. I know it is not the be all but only four passers finished with a higher rating than him.
They are set at the most important position and everything fell into place around him.
That means that they can pound away with the ground game to keep teams honest and don’t have to pitch shutouts on D. It all hinges on the ability to make plays when you have to and they did this season.
They are hosting this one and were 6-2 at home this season. Based on actual performance instead of perception they should probably be more than a slight favourite.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Washington ATS
My irrational mind is staying stick with Green Bay but rationally Washington looks like the choice. Their form is much better heading into this one and they are at home.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Washington 27 – Green Bay 21
If this one gets all the way up to Green Bay +3 I might have to switch sides.
