It’s becoming more and more evident that the Steelers smell blood in the water after the Baltimore Ravens lost two of their most important defenders prior to Week 7 and now the AFC North looks like a crap shoot. The Redskins are clearly a competitive bunch, but after they lost Brian Orakpo, there just isn’t much that their defense can do. Robert Griffin III may throw the best...
