Game Preview: Indianapolis Colts at Washington Redskins

New, comments

First Half Game Thread.....

Key Notes:

  • Return of Tim Hightower, Anthony Armstrong, and Chris Chester. Do they look 100%?
  • What adjustments will Haz make to the secondary?
  • Does RGIII make decisions quicker?
  • We shouldn't be comparing RGIII to Luck, but rather every QB we passed in the draft that Shanny could have taken and saved all those draft picks. Russell Wilson is tearing it up early.
  • Prediction: Redskins 27, Colts 26
