I like the Redskins to beat the Houston Texans on Sunday and no not just because I'm a Redskins fan. Even with the shaky preseason that Redskins QB Robert Griffin had, he's still better than Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick who has made a career of not much more than turning the ball over, losing and moving on to another team. Which is what tends to happen to quarterbacks who turn the ball over a lot and lose a lot of games. The Redskins offense is obviously just not Griffin. Especially when you're talking about running back Alfred Morris, wide receivers Desean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, tight Jordan Reed and others.
Defensively the Redskins will be much improved this year. Especially when it comes to tackling and rushing the quarterback and safety Ryan Clark to go along with Brandon Meriweather should make the Redskins secondary good enough to win in 2014. And Arian Foster will not be good enough to beat the Redskins by himself running the ball especially with the Redskins defense gaming to take him out of the game and force Ryan Fitzpatrick to beat them. The Texans defense is still very good, but their offense won't help them much and the Redskins have a better rounded team.
