Carolina Panthers vs Washington Redskins takes place Sunday with both teams desperate to land an important win at this pivotal stage of the season. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Redskins have lost two straight games on the road, but will have the perfect opportunity to bounce back today at home against the lackluster Panthers.
The Panthers come into this game with a record of 1-6 and have an offense ranking near the bottom of the entire NFL, making just 350 yards per game on average.
The Redskins will be looking to hit the Panthers hard from the outset to try and gain a lead and hopefully take advantage of a team low on confidence.
Robert Griffin III will have noted that the Panthers are allowing more than 23 points per game on average this year, and will be looking to pile on the misery for Carolina. he has completed 149 throws from 223 attempts, recording 1778 yards and 8 touchdowns so far this season.
In comparison Cam Newton has struggled, completing just 121 from 212 attempts, recording 1701 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Robert Griffin III will be looking to connect up with Santana Moss who has received 23 times this year for 311 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Last week the Redskins struggled against the Steelers, whose defense were easily able to contain the Washington offense. However, they should have a lot more joy against the Panthers, who have had holes everywhere in their defense this season.
This match up may not be one of the stand out games of the day when it comes to records, but it should be an intriguing contest, and especially with Robert Griffin III having a fantastic rookie season, compared to Newton's sophomore nightmare so far, it should make for interesting viewing.
