B/R Consensus Pick: Chargers (9-3)
Schottey: Redskins, 17-16
I don't like the Chargers so far away from the West Coast, and I think Robert Griffin III will have just enough in the tank to put together a full game and squeak out the home win.
Bowen: Redskins, 24-20
RGIII took a beating in the loss to the Broncos, but the Redskins quarterback posts two second-half touchdown runs to pick up the win over the Chargers.
Schalter: Chargers, 35-21
The Chargers offense should have no trouble scoring on the wet-tissue Redskins defense, and the Chargers defense will force RGIII to outduel Philip Rivers through the air.
Freeman: Chargers, 28-27
It'll be a closer game than people think because the Washington defense will be more stout than expected.
Miller: Chargers, 21-20
The Redskins look better, but they still struggle to finish games. You can't let Philip Rivers and this offense hang around, or they'll beat you.
Frenz: Chargers, 28-17
It's not always pretty, but the Chargers are dominating on the scoreboard on both sides of the ball. Look for the defense to get pressure on RGIII early, and for Philip Rivers to exploit the many mismatches he'll find in the passing game.
Hangst: Redskins, 21-16
Early games on the East Coast didn't faze the Chargers earlier this season, with two wins in the Eastern time zone so far. However, those wins came against the Eagles and Jaguars—neither team a powerhouse. Though Washington isn't a juggernaut on defense, its offense is playing well enough to best what Philip Rivers can produce on Sunday.
Hansen: Chargers, 30-27
Two good offenses and two bad defenses should make for plenty of points. The Chargers travel to Washington for the early start, but coming off a bye, they should be plenty fresh.
Bardeen: Chargers, 24-20
Both offenses have the potential to go off in this game, but I like the team with the healthy quarterback. RGIII just doesn't have the wheels to be a game-changer any longer, at least not this season.
Gagnon: Chargers, 27-23
Two inconsistent teams, but the Chargers have the advantage of coming off the bye. Washington suffered a tremendous fourth-quarter letdown in Denver, and it could be in just as much trouble against a rejuvenated Philip Rivers.
Langland: Chargers, 27-21
The Chargers have struggled on the road at times this season. Yet the bye week may be just what the doctor ordered. With the first half of the season over, San Diego will need to start winning games on the road if it wants to stay within arm's reach of a wild-card spot.
Kruse: Chargers, 31-20
San Diego is coming off a bye, and Robert Griffin III is once again hurting. I like Philip Rivers to have a nice afternoon against the No. 27-ranked passing defense.
