Buffalo at Washington

Sunday 12/02 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Washington -6.5 (-120) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

It has been a tough week for Washington. The Redskins lost safety Sean Taylor in a tragic shooting at his home. Buffalo by virtue of two straight losses saw their hopes to finding a way to the playoffs after a mid season surge disappear. This will be a very bad spot for Buffalo. We have seen this on every level, including college and pro. When an important part of a team (teammate, coach, owner) goes down, that team steps on the field with a mission and purpose. Sport is so motivationally and emotionally driven, it is what often separates one team from another. Washington will be bringing their highest emotion of the season into this one. Clinton Portis has already made the decision to wear Taylor's uniform #21 in honor of his fallen teammate. Portis and Taylor were also teammates at the University of Miami. When your top offensive player decides this game is for his fallen teammate, watch-out Buffalo, because that will be the tone here. You can make a list of the times this has happened in sports. The results are always the same. When Wellington Marra passed away, the Giants went out and smacked the Skins 36-0 in his honor. Last year, the University of Miami had a fallen teammate and the Canes played their best game of the year to win outright as a dog. Indiana and Northwestern had coaches pass to find the same results. Throw out the stat sheets, and enter an emotionally charged team, with a common mission, and the Skins are the only way to go here.
