What to Know
The Washington Football Team need to shore up a defense that is allowing 30 points per matchup before their game Sunday. They are staying on the road to face off against the Denver Broncos at 4:25 p.m. ET Oct. 31 at Empower Field at Mile High. Washington earned a 27-11 win in their most recent contest against Denver in December of 2017.
Washington came up short against the Green Bay Packers last week, falling 24-10. Despite the loss, Washington had strong showings from QB Taylor Heinicke, who passed for one TD and 268 yards on 37 attempts in addition to picking up 95 yards on the ground, and WR Terry McLaurin, who was on the other end of that TD and tacked on 122 yards receiving. Heinicke ended up with a passer rating of 131.90.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for the Broncos as they fell 17-14 to the Cleveland Browns last Thursday. No one had a standout game offensively for Denver, but they got scores from RB Melvin Gordon and RB Javonte Williams. QB Teddy Bridgewater ended up with a passer rating of 131.20.
Washington is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
