RG3 looks as if he will play this week against the Vikings. The Redskins will need him if they want to win this week, because Kirk Cousins looked horrible in his few snaps that he took. Cousins threw two interceptions in just 9 passes.Robert Griffin III (concussion) says he “felt fine” in Wednesday’s limited practice, and hasn’t had any “bad symptoms.” “I felt sharp. I felt good,” Griffin said. “No symptoms.” Barring a setback, Griffin should be cleared for full practice by Friday, and will be under center against the Vikings. Concussions are tricky, but owners can begin to breathe a sigh of relief. For what it’s worth, Griffin says there’s “no doubt” he’ll play.The Vikings defense has been playing great, and if the Redskins want to win they are going to have to be able to run and pass the ball effectively. RG3 at 50 percent gives them the best chance to win.

The Washington Redskins have no single answer to why they're last in the league when it comes to converting on third down.
Teams with poor third-down conversion percentages often explain the problem comes from not gaining enough yards on first and second down to set up short third-down tries.
But it's not so simple for the Redskins. They rank last in the NFL, converting...
