Three Reasons to Watch
1. The Redskins Quarterback Conundrum
By this point, it'll be sorted out, but it's going to be an ongoing saga if either Rex Grossman or John Beck can't step up and be consistent. I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike Shanahan switch between guys if he needs to, so who actually plays this game is anyone's guess right now. Beck has been good so far, though.
2. Sam Bradford's Evolution
Bradford will be looking to avoid the sophomore jinx and has some good weapons on his side. This should be a game his team wins. That makes it even more important for him. You have to beat lesser teams if you're going to be good. Either way, watching Bradford this year is going to be interesting.
3. Who's Running in Washington?
And I don't mean politics! Who's the running back to replace Clinton Portis? Right now, it's anybody's guess. Evan Royster has looked good in flashes. Ryan Torain has experience if he's healthy again. They could even bring in someone new. Anytime someone is running in Washington, it's important. This year, it's even bigger because the Redskins need to take some heat off their quarterbacks.
