The Redskins are coming off a sluggish win over the Bears, while the Lions are coming off a bye week with Matt Stafford back from a Week 1 injury.
Redskins RB Ryan Torain vs. the Lions rush defense
The lions are horrible against the run, allowing 138 yards a game, and it will get much worse this week against a Redskins back who has rushed for 100+ yards in each of the past two games.
Lions QB, Matthew Stafford vs. the Redskins pass defense
The Redskins are dead-last in the league in yards allowed to the opposing passing game and the Lions should have a big advantage with that right? Wrong. Matt will probably be in a pass frenzy and get a lot of yards and touchdowns, but the Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall, who picked off Jay Cutler four times last week, could be hungry for even more this week.
Player of the Game
Ryan Torain will be rush happy this week and will pick up 130 yards on the ground and a score.
Final Score: *WAS 27, DET 19
In the end the Torain train can not be stopped.
