Redskins vs. Raiders: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The winless Washington Redskins travel west in Week 4 to take on the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland has been competitive this season and carries a 1-2 record into this contest. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been a spark plug for Dennis Allen's club, and his incredible athleticism has made the Raiders watchable this year.

After suffering a gruesome knee injury last year, Robert Griffin III has yet to play well in three games. He hasn't looked comfortable in the pocket, and he is still working on getting into rhythm with his receivers. 

Three losses later, the Redskins are in danger of falling to 0-4 to start the season after winning the NFC East with a record of 10-6 in 2012. 

Here's what you need to know about this upcoming matchup.

When: Sunday, Sept. 29, at 4:25 p.m. ET

Where: Coliseum, Oakland, Calif.

Can Washington's Defense Stop Anybody?

Through three games, no team in the NFL has been worse than the Redskins at stopping offenses from moving the ball, and only the New York Giants have allowed more points. 

Granted, it's not easy to stop the Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions from making plays on offense, but this defense has been disturbingly undisciplined. 

Washington should be able to lock down Oakland's offense, but if it plays like it has the past three games on defense, RGIII won't be able to save his team for the fourth straight week.

If the Redskins lose this game, they can kiss the playoffs goodbye. 

Though Washington's defense has been horrid to open the season, it will find a way to rally with the team's playoff hopes on the line.

On the other side of the ball, RGIII will rebound from his dismal start with a breakout performance. But even more importantly, running back Alfred Morris will have a big game, and the balanced attack will overwhelm Oakland's suspect defense. 

Oakland has a victory, and Washington does not. But it is worth noting that Oakland's lone win came against the Jacksonville Jaguars—the worst team in the NFL by a long shot. 

Final Score 

Redskins win 30-21
