The Redskins are on a roll with three straight wins, aiming for the NFC East crown. Plus they're at home. Plus Robert Griffin III is having a rookie season for the ages. Plus the Ravens are banged up and their offense is sputtering.

The Redskins have been disastrous at home under coach Mike Shanahan. But they are flying high after their third straight win, and if the Ravens couldn't beat a 37-year-old quarterback last Sunday, how can they beat a 22-year-old who is one of the favorites for NFL Rookie of the Year?
