Collectively, the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns have won seven straight games. While the Redskins have gained media attention nationwide with the play of their rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III, the Browns have quietly rebounded from a poor start and are gaining respect around the league.
The biggest story of today’s game is the health of Robert Griffin III’s knee. He took an ugly hit from Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata last Sunday, and head coach Mike Shanahan has kept this one a secret.
If Griffin has to sit out today, the Redskins will turn to their other rookie quarterback, Kirk Cousins, who led a come-from-behind victory last week.
The Browns will certainly be monitoring this as much as possible, as their defensive strategy depends on who is behind center.
The game will be televised on Fox at 1 p.m. ET.
