18 22 Robert Griffin III is for real, and he's going to win them some games that the porous defense tries to lose.


22 RG3 continues to impress, but also continues to get slaughtered when he runs the ball. See his goal-line fumble Sunday against the Bucs as evidence.


18 21 RGIII is still fun to watch. The defense, while getting better last week, is not so fun to watch.


19 25
That was a big-time drive by Robert Griffin III to beat the Bucs. Now he gets a chance to knock Atlanta from the ranks of the unbeaten.


22 30 Mike Shanahan is not playing around these days. Alfred Morris continues to get a massive workload, and the kid is making it count. The rookie running back out of Florida Atlantic got 21 more carries in Tampa, and now has 82 for the season. Who would have thought Morris would be in the top five in rushing, or even tied for third in carries? Washington moves up eight spots because of the strong play of Robert Griffin III, the development of a true lead tailback and nearly every team that was right ahead of Washington in last week's rankings losing.

20 25 The Redskins evened their record to 2-2, while continuing to show one of the best offenses in the league. The rookie combo of Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris has been nearly impossible for opposing defenses to stop. Unfortunately the defense still hasn't shown any ability to stop opposing offenses and special teams miscues have really hurt the Redskins. The Redskins schedule is about to get a bit tougher as the Falcons and Vikings come into town the next two weeks.


17 24 Can the Skins make it three wins in a row against the NFC South this year when the Dirty Birds come to town?
