Quick Take: Bengals pose stiff challenge for RG3 and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing:Robert Griffin III came down to earth last week, and this season will continue to be a learning experience for him. Don't think he won't want to win, though. This is a winnable game, but it won't be easy. The Bengals took the attention off themselves with an embarrassing season-opening loss to the Ravens, and they can quietly go about their business now. They still are very much players in the AFC North.

What to watch: The Redskins were dealt some brutal injury news, losing starting defensive studs Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker for the season. Ouch. That's crushing, and it might be too much to handle for a defense that has given up more than 800 yards in its first two games. Don't be shocked if the run-happy Bengals go right at the edges of Washington's defense with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. They can exploit that sudden weakness.
