This past week, the Lions dusted the Los Angeles Rams thanks to a furious fourth quarter comeback powered by Golden Tate and a resurgent offense. The defense was gashed at times, but made enough key plays when it counted in big spots in order to lead in the victory, and Detroit getting back to 3-3.

Interestingly enough, the Redskins are also streaking, winners of four in a row to pull themselves back from an 0-2 hole after the first two weeks of the season. The fact that both teams are currently having success might be the biggest reason that the game has basically opened as a push in the minds of bettors.
