Beast Prediction Friday
By Dan Graziano
We do it every week at this time. Let's take a look at the ESPN experts' predictions and then make a few of our own. By the way, all eight esteemed panelists were correct in picking the Eagles to beat the Houston Texans on Thursday:
Washington Redskins at New York Giants: All eight panelists picked the Giants to take care of business at home. And they'll once again be playing without starting wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith.
Mosley's pick: Giants 28, Redskins 13. I just don't think the Skins will be able to run on the Giants at all and that will make Donovan McNabb vulnerable to the pass rush. He's had a lot of success against the Giants over the years, but he doesn't have enough weapons this time around.
Dallas Cowboys at Indianapolis Colts: Only three experts picked the Colts to win at home against the 3-8 Cowboys. Seth Wickersham, Adam Schefter and Ron Jaworski were the only ones to go with the Colts.
Mosley's pick: Colts 31, Cowboys 27: I think it will be a great game, but I can't see Peyton Manning having two straight poor performances. I think he'll take advantage of the Cowboys safeties and have a big game. For the Cowboys, Miles Austin will go off in this game and Tashard Choice will finish with 75 rushing yards.
