Free Picks: Service Plays for Sunday October, 21

Scored a 2-0 sweep with a pair of college underdogs on Saturday - Duke and Northwestern. Ready to make money with an NFL pup?

Let me make this perfectly clear, about my free pick for Sunday, I do not in any way think the New York Giants' win last week over the San Francisco 49ers was a farce, nor do I think the defending Super Bowl champs are the type of team that lets down that easy. I simply think the Washington Redskins are as good as they look on their best days.

And this week Robbert Griffin III and company are going to be up for the challenge in the Meadowlands, in what should be a good ol' fashioned NFC East shodown like we've become used to, dating back to the 1980s, and even earlier.

This is a game for first place in the division and, I think Washington coach Mike Shanahan is smart enough to know the Giants won't come in soft, won't be letting down and he'll have his troops well-prepared for a New York team that cannot afford another division loss after losing to the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles earlier this season.

The Redskins have as much to gain in this one, and I think have a damn good shot at pulling off a third straight win over New York.

Last week's win might have come just in time, as I think we might have seen RGIII's best game last week, in a 38-26 win over Minnesota, in which he ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns, the last coming on a 76-yard fourth-quarter sprint, finally displaying the speed we all remember from his Hesiman-run at Baylor.

True, the Giants can be sound defensively, and have shown some prowess against mobile quarterbacks - ask Carolina's Cam Newton and Philly's Mike Vick - but they still only have the 16th-ranked rushing D, 21st-ranked passing D and overall the 19th-ranked stop unit.

Point being - New York's defense is vulnerable. And since the Redskins won both games last season, while Griffin was still starring for Baylor, I think this meeting should tell us a lot about both teams.

One of those things being they're a lot closer than a 6-point spread. Take the dog.

4♦ WASHINGTON

Free play NFL winner for Sunday is New England over the New York Jets

Not exactly ready to place all of my eggs in the Jets basket after their 35-9 win over Indianapolis last week. Let's see if the Fly-Boys can hang with a New England team that let one get away last week in Seattle.

The Patriots have had the Jets number in New England, winning and covering the last three series meetings at Gillette Stadium. As for the Jets, they went just 1-4 last season as the road underdog, and are off to an 0-1 start this year losing 27-10 in Pittsburgh.

New England did get TE Aaron Hernandez back last week, and the Jets secondary figures to be tested this weekend with Revis watching in street clothes. Also consider that any element of surprise Tim Tebow may bring to the table is negated by the fact the Pats faced him twice last season when he was with the Denver Broncos.

Some may feel this is a big impost considering the different results each team incurred last week. I am not one of them.

Pats romp Jets.

1♦ NEW ENGLAND
