Last week, the Ravens had trouble slowing down 38-year-old Pittsburgh quarterback Charlie Batch. Wait until they get a load of RGIII!
"He's changing the game with the way he plays the position," opined ESPN commentator Jon Gruden, via Rotoworld.com.
RGIII is obviously in the conversation for Rookie of the Year honors, but he has been absolutely stunning the last three weeks in games against division rivals.
First, He shredded the Cowboys and Eagles to the tune of 504 passing yards and eight scoring passes. Then he outpointed two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning to hand the Giants their third loss in four games.
So, what will he do for an encore against Baltimore?
Hopefully, we'll see more of the same, but his offensive line needs to continue its steady play and Griffin needs to grow eyes in back of his head.
Last Monday, RGIII withstood a forearm shiver when he decided to stay in bounds on a run toward the sidelines in the waning moments of Washington's 17-16 win.
The Ravens will be looking to deliver more body blows, so Griffin should take heed of his surroundings while he's on the run.
Keep an eye on Ravens outside linebacker Paul Kruger. According to a preview by yahoosports.com, "Kruger has five sacks over the past four games and leads Baltimore with 6.5, despite starting only three games."
Griffin will face a Ravens defense that ranks 23rd against the pass and has lost two talented cornerbacks this season.
First, the Ravens' best cover guy went down, when Lardarius Webb blew out his knee in October. 2011 first-round pick Jimmy Smith replaced Webb, but injured his groin just four weeks later. Smith underwent successful surgery to repair a sports hernia, but he has not returned.
In the meantime, substitute corners Cary Williams and Chykie Brown have been burned on a regular basis.
According to CBSSports.com, Baltimore's secondary currently gives up an average of 246.5 passing yards to opposing quarterbacks.
