NFL O/U Game of the Week
January 2nd 2009 - Special K
Washington Redskins at San Diego Chargers (Over 38.5 points)
This pick completely lies in the hands of Billy Volek. Although Volek hasn't
played much in the past few years, he is a more capable QB than anyone on the
Redskins roster. If you are a Chargers or Colts fan, you may recall that Volek
led the game winning drive at Indianapolis in the 2008 playoffs to put the
Chargers in the AFC championship game. Volek came in after Philip Rivers hurt
his right knee. Volek went 3 for 4 for 48 yards and then scored on a one-yard QB
sneak in the 28-24 win.
Yes, the Chargers will be resting their key players like LT, Rivers, and
Jackson which is why the over/under total is only at 38.5 points. However, some
of the Chargers backups could probably start on most NFL teams. Darren Sproles
had three touchdowns last week against the Titans. The anemic Redskins offense
should benefit from players like Shawne Merriman and Eric Weddle taking the day
off. I look for both teams to easily cover this low point total.
