Window of Opportunity: Ravens at Redskins

The (9-3) Baltimore Ravens are set to make a trip down the BW Parkway this Sunday to take on America’s hot trending Robert Griffin, III and the (6-6) Washington Redskins who many, including head coach Mike Shanahan, had considered dead in the hunt for a postseason berth.

Fresh off a big Monday Night win over division rivals the New York Giants, the Redskins are winners of three straight as they head into this game which Vegas handicappers have set as a pick ‘em contest.

The Ravens inexplicably abandoned an effective running game that produced 5.6 yards per carry against the Steelers, opting instead to attack Pittsburgh by air on the arm of an erratic Joe Flacco.

Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron must avoid the temptation to flip-flop like he’s done so often and overfeed Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce in the running game.

Why?

The Redskins field the league’s 31st ranked passing defense and that weakness represents an ample Thompson Creek Window of Opportunity for Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

Hey Haloti Ngata and Ryan Kerrigan, who has the best fans Baltimore or Washington?
