Fail to the Redskins! Here are my five keys to a Cincy win in the Capitol this Sunday:
1. Score Early/Get Ahead: The Bengals are on the road for the Redskins home opener. FedEx field is huge, and usually sold out. They will be loud and rocking as they get their highly-anticipated first look at RGIII. The Bengals would do well to get up on the skins by a touchdown early, to limit the impact of the 80,000+ that will be in attendance.
2. Contain RGIII: I know this sounds nearly impossible for any defense, especially this one. The Redskins will use the dynamic Heisman winner on QB draws and option plays to the edge. Cincinnati’s defensive ends and outside linebackers need to maintain edge responsibilities, and keep Griffin inside the hashes as much as possible. From there, it’ll be up to Rey Maualuga, Geno Atkins, and the safeties to make a play. RGIII is a much more average quarterback inside the pocket, and without his favorite target, Pierre Garcon, he could look even m...

The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to have two key players back on the field this week when they take on the Washington Redskins in their home opener. DE Carlos Dunlap and RB Bernard Scott are slated to return to the lineup. Niether player has seen action yet this season, Dunlap is coming off a knee injury and Scott returns after suffering a broken hand he suffered in the preseason...
The Bengals came out firing from the get-go in Washington to get things going for their young offensive squad.
The first play of the game as setup in a wildcat with receiver Mohamed Sanu under center. He took the snap and bombed it downfield to AJ Green who had beat Safety DeJon Gomes and cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the opening touchdown.

The Redskins were dealt crippling blows to their defense last week, losing starting cornerback Josh Wilson, top pass rusher Brian Orakpo, and starting defensive lineman Adam Carriker in the game against St. Louis. The trio played 52, 18, and 2 of 71 snaps respectively. The Redskins’ poor defense had a ton of trouble stopping a Rams offense that isn’t great to begin with and after...
Bengals receiver A.J. Green caught a 71-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage Sunday against Washington but he didn't slack off the rest of the day. The superstar finished with nine catches for 183 yards and a score.Fantasy Spin:Green was targeted plenty in the first two weeks but he only averaged 10.7 yards per catch on 12 receptions. Sunday balanced things out...
DOH! So close. Bengals 38, Redskins 34.1. Cincinnati threw the winning touchdown on the first play from scrimmage on a trick play. With QB Andy Dalton lined up on the line and WR Mohamed Sanu lined up in the Wildcat, Washington somehow, mysteriously, inexcusably lost tract of AJ Green. Green met up with Sanu's deep pass about 60 yards downfield and ran unhindered across the...
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is listed as doubtful against the Cincinnati Bengals with a foot injury. With Garcon out, the Redskins will turn to a rotation of Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson. Garcon, 26, had a big opening week, hauling four passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, including an 88-yard strike from Robert Griffin...
Early on in the game, the Bengals decided to pull out a big time trick and have WR Sanu throw a bomb to AJ Green. Is it beating a dead horse to say Sanu throws it better than Tebow? Probably. S/O to @sbnation for the GIF.

Robert Griffin III is a pretty crazy talent that all Redskins fans should be happy to have. Rumor has it that he starred in the movie Goodberger? All jokes aside I’m excited to watch RG3 play every sunday.-TO

RG3 Calls out Rams For Playing Dirty
Washington Redsksins quarterback Robert Griffin III complained about the Rams playing dirty and hitting him late during last Sunday’s game.
“It was weird,” Griffin said. “People want to hit me because they don’t think I can take a hit.”
On Thursday, Rams running back Steven Jackson responded to Griffin.
“It’s not the Big 12,” Jackson said.
“I don’t think we’re...
NFL Fines Redskins And Rams Players -
Redskins WR Josh Morgan had the costliest mental mistake of Sunday’s game in St. Louis, when his 15-yard penalty for throwing the ball at Rams CB Cortland Finnegan pushed Washington out of range for a game-tying field goal. But Morgan didn’t have the costliest fine to arise from that game. Morgan was fined $7,875 for throwing the ball at...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will not play in today’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s still dealing with a foot injury that he suffered during their week one win over the Saints.
