Chart: A look ahead to next week to the Redskins
- October 7, 2012 - 11:04 PM
The Redskins have lost eight in a row at home, and they will be led by a rookie quarterback -- either Robert Griffin III, who was injured Sunday, or Kirk Cousins.
REDSKINS WEEK 5
Atlanta 24, Washington 17
Griffin suffered a mild concussion and left the game in the third quarter, and Matt Ryan led the Falcons to three fourth-quarter scores as Atlanta remained unbeaten.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Robert Griffin III
The second overall pick in the draft has revitalized Washington's offense, but the rookie QB found out Sunday that running in the NFL is a risky business. He will be evaluated today.
The Vikings, near the end of a 3-13 season, won in Washington last Christmas Eve. If the Redskins are without Griffin, the Vikings defense could feast on Cousins. Outlook: Horns up.
