Vegas's NFL Power Rankings
With my Redskins-loving friends now convinced that 10-6 is on the low end of possible results and that 13-3 is a real possibility, and with Charley Casserly jumping on board with Skins luv, it's time to again check in with Vegas and see where D.C. ranks on its list of NFL excellence. Well, not so great. 13th, behind such powerhouses as Baltimore and Chicago. The results will no doubt severely depress Joe Gibbs, who believes the Skins should be somewhere around 213th.
As always, these are the Las Vegas Sports Consultants rankings, that are used to help set initial betting lines. The idea is that Washington, on a neutral field, as of this moment, would be an underdog against Baltimore and Chicago, but would be favored against the Eagles and Giants. With 12 games left, it would appear that Washington will be favored in five (vs. AZ, at Jets, vs. Philly, vs. Buffalo, at Minnesota) and dogs in five (at GB, at NE, at Dallas, at Giants, vs. Dallas), with two too close to call (at TB, vs. Chicago). Sounds like 13-3 to me.
(Blatant homer Mister Irrelevant says stat geeks disagree with Vegas.)
Jeez, Vegas is a real downer. Their rankings, after their jump.
