Detroit Lions vs Washington Football Team Prediction
This game should be an easy win for the Lions. Washington will be without their preferred starting QB Kyle Allen, who suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury against the Giants last week. His replacement, Alex Smith -- who just came back this season from a nasty-looking injury that almost cost him his career -- threw three interceptions in his second relief appearance of the season last week.
