Washington Redskins (+2.5) at Houston Texans

We have two completely new head coaches in Houston and Washington. Bill O'Brien joins a Texans team that is coming off of a 2 win season. O'Brien was the Patriots offensive coordinator before taking over the Penn State program that had just endured the Jerry Sandusky scandal. O'Brien finished 15-9 overall at Penn St. which isn't bad considering all the probations.

Meanwhile, Jay Gruden takes over a Redskins squad that completely fell apart and only managed to win 3 games in 2013. Jay Gruden was a very good offensive coordinator while at Cincinnati. When I look at this matchup and analyze both teams, Jay Gruden simply has more talent to work with on offense than do the Texans. That is the major edge that the Redskins have over the Texans in this matchup. Listen, we all know Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a starting QB in the NFL. The Redskins have the better QB in RG III who appears to be 100% healthy again. The Redskins also have more weapons at wide receiver with the addition of DeSean Jackson. RG III will be able to elude the Texans pass rush. The Redskins should be able to make more plays at the end of the game to pull out a road win at Houston. It is going to take some time for O'Brien to turn this Texans ship around.
