Redskins vs. Browns: Five Keys to the Game

6 of 6

1.  Quarterbacks need to get the Ball out:

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will need to be decisive in his reads against the Browns defense.  They will be looking to establish their pass rush with outside linebackers Paul Kruger and Barkevious Mingo.  So RGIII must make the proper pre snap reads and go through his progressions quickly to negate the pass rushers.

The Redskins offensive line will need to hold on to their blocks though when Griffin looks for receivers deep.  The quarterbacks are learning a new offense so it may be a work in progress until they can become comfortable and the Browns will be playing more starters this week than the New England Patriots played last week.

So Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy along with RGIII don’t want to get caught holding on to the ball too long or risk getting sacked and hit.
