Washington Redskins (2-4) at Denver Broncos (6-1)
The Broncos lost their first game of the season in Indianapolis last week. The good news is they return home here to play the Washington Redskins in a game in which they should win. The question is, by how much will they win? Fortunately for them, they have a bye coming up so they can be totally focused here as 12.5 point favorites. Since 2002, home favorites of 7 or more are 26-9 ATS before a mid-season bye. It makes sense. Teams have no distractions and can take care of business.
However, I question if the line should be this high. The Broncos are playing incredible football, even with the loss, moving the chains at an 84% rate offensively and allowing opponents to do so at a league average 73% average. However, the Redskins are better than their record as well, moving the chains at a 77% rate, as opposed to 77% for their opponents. That suggests this line should be closer to 9 or 10.

Whether you're a coach or a player, you always want to beat your former team. After the 2008 season, the Denver Broncos effectively told Mike Shanahan that he wasn't good enough and fired him. He compiled a 146-91 record and led the franchise to their only two Super Bowl victories, so getting the boot had to be brutal. Five years later, Shanahan finally gets his return trip...
Hey, hey, hey…slow down! It’s Week 8 already? This season is going way too fast. Pretty much like how certain teams can put up points on the scoreboard, quickly. Eleven teams, thus far, this season are averaging at least 25 points per game, which is on pace to be the most in a season in NFL history. Among those quick scorers, or late point grabbers who are milking up garage...
The Washington Redskins list four players as questionable to play Sunday afternoon in Denver against the 6-1 Broncos. Those four are WR Leonard Hankerson [foot], NT Chris Neild [calf], DE Stephen Bowen [right knee] and S Reed Doughty [concussion]. Doughty is probably the most important person on that list since he is a starting safety […]

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder has been under serious public pressure recently regarding the name of his team. Many believe that the Redskins name is offensive and despite their history, it must be changed.
A report from TMZ.com suggests that Snyder may be giving into the pressure.

Pierre Garcon gave us what likely will go down as the best catch of the weekend. The Washington Redskins receiver made a crazy one-handed catch on the team’s third drive of the game. Robert Griffin III’s pass was high, so Garcon had to show off his vertical leap while reaching up with his right hand […]
(note: this article began following closely after the Colts/Broncos game, and was updated as news came in)I usually try not to label too many players as “dirty.” To me, that label is reserved for those who make blatant attempts to hurt another player.

Mike Shanahan deserves some Rocky Mountain Thunder.
When he leads the Washington Redskins into Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday Broncos fans should stand and cheer — long and loud.
Shanahan wasn't perfect during his Denver tenure but he was a great coach — a championship coach — and he deserves some hometown love.

Denver cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) is a no-go for Sunday's game against the Redskins.Fantasy Spin:He's hoping to be back in two weeks. Without Bailey, it's going to be very difficult for the Broncos to contain Robert Griffin III in the passing game. Denver's D/ST is not a recommended fantasy play in Week 8.
