BEREA -- With their third straight win the Browns are now poised for what could be the most-exciting home game of the season Sunday against the Washington Redskins and quarterback Robert Griffin (aka RG III).
The Redskins won again yesterday, 31-28, over the Baltimore Ravens in overtime. RG III injured a knee in the game and was replaced by Kirk Cousins. Early reports indicate that an MRI on Griffin's knee revealed no major damage to the ACL. Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported that it's not a sure thing Griffin will play against the Browns.
It would be a shame if he can't play. It would match the quarterback the Browns tried to trade uo for last spring (Griffin) against their current quarterback (Brandon Weeden). Griffin has much better passing numbers and could be on track to winning Rookie of the Year honors. Weeden has been up and down but has shown signs of being the Browns quarterback of the future.
Weeden has been lost in all the talk about Griffin, Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Weeden is anxious to face Griffin. The two met twice in college. It's a chance for Weeden to put his name in the same discussion with the other rookies.
"I've wanted that for the last three years," Weeden said. "I've been the guy in the background and gone about my business. They're great players. It will be fun to square off against him. I went against Andrew and came up short. If we keep winning games it will take care of itself."
