Baltimore Sun staff picks: Ravens at Redskins

Redskins 27, Ravens 21

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


Rookie of the Year?

It might not be pretty, but the Ravens will bounce back after a loss to

Charlie Batch

and the


by limiting the damage done by RGIII.

Aaron Wilson

Ravens rebound despite being pushed to the brink by electrifying rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III as

Ed Reed

baits him into a costly miscue, and

Cam Cameron

recalls that

Ray Rice

is on the roster.

I have no idea how the Ravens are going to slow down RGIII, but this is the type of game that over the years, they've risen up and found a way to win. I think they'll do it again, barely.
