After back-to-back seven-win seasons in 2017 and 2018, Washington had a miserable 3-13 season in 2019. New head coach Ron Rivera starts his career in Washington with a home opener against NFC East rival Eagles.
Washington's projected win total is 5.5 (over -110; under -110). They have a stout defensive front full of first-round picks, and young up-and-comers on offense in Dwyane Haskins, Terry McLaurin and Derrius Guice. Can Rivera get the defense to live up to their draft-day pedigree? Will Haskins take a big step forward in 2020?
