The Om Field:
Robert Griffin III
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
In Tampa Bay this week, where the Buccaneers are preparing to host the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon, the talk is about "containing RG3." As it should be. From the outside looking in, the most intriguing thing about the Redskins is their suddenly dangerous offense, led by dynamic rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.The phrase "highest scoring offense in the NFL" has a certain cachet, after all. It gets attention. It's also a legitimate concern to opposing team. The Redskins are scoring a crisp 33 points per game, which projects out over the course of the season to 528 points.

Washington, DC. One of the bigger surprises two weeks into the NFL season has to be the transformation that the Washington Redskins have seemed to go through.

According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) was limited in today’s practice along with safety Brandon Meriweather (knee), Evan Royster (knee) and Brandon Banks (hip).

On Wednesday, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said that he plans on doing what he can to make it clear to defenders that he’s doesn’t have the ball on option plays, so he doesn’t get hit so much.
“On some of the option plays, just make it more clear to the refs that I don’t have the ball because then they can’t hit me,” Griffin...

A true firestorm of bad publicity, blown calls, and flat out incompetence displayed by the NFL's replacement referees led the league to hammer out an eight-year deal with their officials this week. The September 24th installment of Monday Night Football proved to be the straw that broke the camel's back with the game's final outcome botched by the...

Washington Redskins @ Tampa Bay BuccaneersWashington: The Redskins lost a shootout with the Bengals in Week 3, and really the only reason they were in the game in the first place was the stellar play of Robert Griffin III.Through three weeks, RGIII is the leading scorer in most fantasy scoring formats, which is huge considering he very likely wasn’t even drafted as a QB1. The...
Robert Griffin III (top 3 fantasy QB right now) has been quite the surprise through the first three weeks of the NFL season, but it wasn’t as if we thought he would become a complete bust.
The talent is there after giving Baylor their first ever Heisman winner in program history, but the Redskins would have a tough time competing in the Big 12 these days with all of their unknowns...
Washington Redskins (1-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2)
The Buccaneers are one of the few teams I’ve had as underrated before the season that’s actually become overrated 3 weeks into it. The Buccaneers have hung tough, on the scoreboard, with the Giants and Cowboys and beat the Panthers, but they’re not playing that well. They rank dead last in the league in yards per play...
