There's a lot of good info in these notes. Check them out. Also make sure to check the cleats and gloves Chris Cooley will be wearing (picture after the jump). Brian Mitchell will be broadcasting part of his show from our tailgate, so we'll try to get some video/pics up asap. Make sure to follow us at @hogshaven or the twitter feed after the jump.
FYI - the 2nd half game thread is scheduled for 6:05pm.
Predictions: Redskins 24-14. I think the Redskins defense forces 3 turnovers including a sack fumble and an INT. I don't expect Rex to be perfect since Jason Paul Pierre is a nightmare, but I bet Roy Helu gets on the nation's fantasy football map today.
