    Every Friday, Larry Michael — a Redskins senior vice president and the host of Redskins Nation — picks Washington’s upcoming game. Every week, he hands out check marks denoting an advantage in offense, defense, special teams and intangibles. And every week, he picks Washington to win, while giving the Redskins the edge in intangibles.

    Whether it started this way or not, the segment is now delivered with a bit of a wink, if I’m being honest. That wink became something grander in recent days, when the intangibles category was renamed “Skintangibles,” immediately becoming my choice for favorite new word of the year. And yes, Washington still has the edge.
