Washington Redskins vs. Baltimore Ravens – Week 5 Picks And Predictions

One of the most interesting matchups this week and also one of the toughest to pick and predict is the duel between Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. Ravens are no longer undefeated even though they played very well against the Raiders. Redskins have won two games in a row and are ready to keep winning and get closer to the NFC East’s leading Eagles.

Ravens have had some questionable opponents in first three weeks. But, they are just doing their job, playing whoever is on their schedule and they have won some games. Yes, Raiders have beaten them, but Ravens still showed up and looked good on the offensive side of the ball.

Washington did beat the Browns, but even they were in the game for three of the four quarters. They played well against Redskins and were able to put up some points on the board. Josh Norman is a good corner, but he is not that shutdown guy, and he can’t alone make this team good on defense. Browns had some great moments on offense against Washington, and they just can’t allow that.

While the Ravens had some trouble against the passing game against Oakland, they are still a middle of the pack defensive team. But, in this duel, their quarterback Joe Flacco should get the job done.

Redskins’ defense is one of the worst in the league and Flacco should be able to make some decent plays. Terrence West will see the ball a lot as he is their starter at running back and he is going to try and abuse this Washington D. It should be a high-scoring game, but we are picking Ravens in this one.

The final score should be somewhere along the lines of 30:27 in favor of the home team.
