NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Washington. According to latest NFL trends, Washington 4-1 ATS L5 in series. Last year: CAROLINA (-2’) over Washington, 33-20. Washington has lost two straight after falling at Pittsburgh last week, 27-12. Fortunately for the Skins, they take on a team that has lost five straight and is 1-6 on the season. The Skins are struggling against the pass and the Panthers are struggling with the passing game. Cam Newton has thrown for 1,701 yards with just five TDs and 8 INTs and has been sacked 17 times. He’s going through a crisis of confidence and is facing a rookie in Robert Griffin III, who is having a strong rookie year (similar to Newton’s). The key difference is that RGIII has just three picks.
