Kevin Cowherd 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. Edward Lee Redskins 19, Ravens 17 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 NFL Rookie of the Year?

Add Gov. Martin O'Malley's name to the list of prominent Democrats who want Washington's National Football League team to change its name. O'Malley's statement came in response to a question from Jorge Ramos on the Fusion satellite and cable channel Monday. Ramos asked whether the team should drop the name Redskins because many consider it an ethnic slur. O'Malley, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, couched his opposition in gentle terms. "We hope that in every generation we become more understanding of one another, more inclusive as a people, and more respectful of the dignity of every individual and every culture, so I think it probably is time for the Redskins to change their name," he said.

The Washington Redskins cut veteran running back Larry Johnson, making him the first casualty of a ground game that has been among the NFL's worst through the first two weeks of the season. Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, and the team confirmed the move. According to two sources, the team replaced Johnson with Chad Simpson, a third-year player out of Morgan State who spent two years with the Indianapolis Colts and was with the Buffalo Bills in the preseason. Johnson, 30, a former star with the Kansas City Chiefs, ran five times for 2 yards the first two weeks of the season.

Being a native Philadelphian and currently a resident of eastern Baltimore County, I am anything but a Redskins fan. However, I cannot understand why anyone would be offended by the team's name ( "Redskins name controversy heats up with federal cancellation of trademark," June 18). In fact, Native Americans should feel proud that a team, especially one based in the nation's capital, would honor the fighting spirit of Native Americans by naming itself after them. A football team seeks to win every time it takes the field.

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman threw down the football gauntlet Wednesday to his Prince George's counterpart. With the Ravens set to take on the Redskins on Sunday, Ulman -- a huge Ravens fan -- sent an online challenge to Rushern Baker. If the Ravens lose, he'd shame himself publicly by wearing a red and gold jersey for an entire day. Ulman isn't afraid to let his purple flag fly -- even around the office. Two years ago, when the Super Bowl bid was looking possible, Ulman declared one Friday "Willis McGahee Day-hee" and renamed food in the office cafeteria -- there were "Harbaugh hot dogs" and "Todd Heaps of chili over Ray Rice.

"Think for a moment about the term 'Redskins,'" NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas exhorted viewers in his halftime tirade during Sunday's Cowboys-Redskins game. "Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed [at] African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group. When considered that way, 'Redskins' can't possibly honor a heritage or a noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term. "It is an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent," Mr. Costas continued.
