It’s Week 16 and we only have one week remaining in what has been a wild and wacky NFL regular season. Covid has definitely made it interesting. But hey,we didn’t know if we would have even had a season in the first place.
Carolina Panthers (4-10) at Washington Football Team (6-8)
Spread: Panthers +1 (-110)
Over/Under: 42 points
Time: 4:05pm ET (Fox)
This is what we call poetic justice. Ron Rivera gets to face his old team with a chance to win the NFC East. If Washington wins the East, Ron Rivera should be coach of the year. With all the issues that came along with accepting this job. He also beat Cancer! If Alex Smith played the entire season, I think they have 10 wins with that defense and running game.

Washington will be without Terry McLaurin today, but they do get Antonio Gibson back. I am not expecting a wild game. It has the feel of a defensive battle. I am not a fan of Dwayne Haskins. I was shocked he was picked so high. Ohio St does not produce QBs (yes I’m concerned about Fields). But today I think he plays well enough and takes advantage of Logan Thomas and that run game.
I think Washington’s defense will be able to take away Carolina’s run game and make Teddy Bridgewater uncomfortable today. And there is nothing more 2020 than a nameless team winning a division.
