Washington (1-1) at New York Jets (1-1), Friday, 7:00 p.m. EDT Sports.com Line: New York -4.5 Total: 35
After an impressive 42-17 victory over the Bills in their opener, the Redskins were humbled by their neighbors from Baltimore, 23-3, last week. Donovan McNabb completed just 11-of-26 throws against the Ravens and was intercepted once. The Skins managed just 25 yards on the ground and allowed Baltimore to rush for 143 yards. Basketball Odds
McNabb will sit out the game against the Jets because of an ankle injury, meaning backup quarterback Rex Grossman will start and likely play into the third quarter. You’ve got to believe that Jets head coach Rex Ryan will be licking his chops over the prospect of sending blitz packages at Grossman with Gang Green’s first-team defensive unit. Sports Scores
