If they come to play it is going to be a hard fought game that the Skins could easily lose.
For me the common opponent # and wins against the possible playoff contenders are important numbers, and we have better percentages in both. The fact that their one win out of 5 games was against a Pitt team that turned it over 8 times, also seems to say that some of their hot streak is less then real. We should win, and I expect that the Redskins will come to play, knowing they have a chance at playoffs and still at the division.

I hear this. I'm actually way more impressed by Cleveland in their losses more so than any of their wins. The Steelers win was kinda a joke. They turned it over 8 times and Pittsburgh still had the ball with 2 minutes left and a chance to win. Raiders/KC doesn't say much either.... But they've also taken the Ravens, Giants, Cowboys, Colts right to the end or given them everything they could handle, and regardless of the opponent, when you win 3 in a row you're doing something right.

If Rg3 plays, I'll be pretty confident. If Cousins plays, I'll think we're right in it, but will be preparing myself for the letdown. We'll see, but this game is going to be way tougher than I thought when the schedule came out and this was an automatic "W". I think the Browns are on the right path and will be in playoff contention within two years.

they tried that play already . . . Shanny said he would never even consider it again . . .

I don't think it's an automatic win, but I feel we are definitely on the right path, and with either qb will get the win. The motivational quality of either playing for your qb that's hurt, or winning without him, will go a long way. Plus Garcon seems to be tracking the right way.

Just can't afford drops by anyone...

This team is going to be scary next year when we get Orakpo and Carriker back and add a few pieces. I still think we can make the playoffs this year, which is bad news for every other team because no one wants to play us.
I'm 100% against this. If Rg3 is dressing, he should be starting. He's either healthy or he's not. If he's not healthy he doesn't dress.

That would be the most hilarious thing I've ever seen.

There's always a chance Good Rex could show up.

All the more reason to use it! He has a pass for 70+yds, a run for 70+ yds. All he needs is a reception for 70+ yards. (can he return kicks?)

The offense will be fine. The zone blocking of the offensive line in conjunction with the hard running of Alfred Morris will take a lot of pressure off of RG3. Because of RG3's sprained knee, I'm looking for Mike and Kyle to call more rushing plays than pass plays. Pretty soon the Browns are going creep that safety up and that's when RG3 is going to hit their defense with play action and go down field to either Garcon, Morgan, or Moss for a TD.

I really didn't mean the players, it was more of a statement of the heads of the Browns. Sorry to come across like that.

That really wasn't my point, my point is it will be a tough f'n game.

For those wondering about the weather. Looks like a 40% chance of rain and between 40-45 degrees.
