NFL Picks And Predictions Week 16: Vikings Vs. Redskins

The Minnesota Vikings head to FedEx Field to visit the Redskins in a game that's purely for draft positioning purposes, but still pretty easy to predict.

After stomping all over the New York Giants in Week 15, it would be easy for the Washington Redskins to build on that momentum against an opponent, in the Minnesota Vikings, that's won only two games all season long. On the other hand, it would be just as easy for the 5-9 Redskins, who are statistically eliminated from the playoffs, quarterbacked by Rex Grossman, to lose to the Vikings in the most depressing way possible. Such is the Redskins experience.

The likeliest scenario, however, is that this game is borderline unwatchable, as neither team would have anything to gain by winning, both are hopelessly mistake-prone, and both quarterbacks, while talented have had ways of driving their fanbases insane (especially Grossman, he's a savant in that category). The Vikings, though, are just plain worse. Outside of Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen, there isn't much developed, healthy talent on this team.

The experts across ESPN, CBS and Yahoo are unanimous in favor of the Redskins, with the except of CBS' Mike Freeman. Considering the Vikings haven't won a game since October, they're probably right. Sorry, Mike.
