    Six observations from the Redskins’ 27-20 loss to the Lions: 1. Robert Griffin III started to look like the RG3 of 2012 early on. At the 10:16 mark of the first quarter he pulled the ball out of Alfred Morris’ belly and scampered around right end for seven yards before going out of bounds. But…

The quarterback has spent the first two games getting used to playing on his reconstructed right knee and the accompanying knee brace, and trying to get in synch with his teammates. The need for…

    The Washington Redskins might have a better chance of beating the Detroit Lions on Sunday with Kirk Cousins at quarterback instead of Robert Griffin III.

But as it turned out the doctors apparently weren’t comfortable with him playing with anything less that the full club so that’s what he wore on Monday night.…
