- To see how much influence Robert Griffin III is beginning to accumulate in the Washington, D.C. area, consider that the Washington Redskins quarterback is being given credit for helping the last-place Washington Wizards upset the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat Tuesday night. All he did was attend the game. Griffin smiled as he was informed about the credit. "Just say thank you. I don't know. What can you say?" Griffin said when asked after Wednesday's practice for his response.

GLENDALE, Ariz.  - With the losses mounting, first-year coach Jay Gruden recently conceded that the Washington Redskins are a team still searching for its identity. After Sunday's mistake-filled 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, that identity had taken indisputable shape. The Redskins are a team with no shortage of offensive weapons but one that misfires with fatal frequency. And backup quarterback Kirk Cousins is its chief liability. After keeping Washington in contention through the first half and trailing just 14-13 at the break, Cousins short-circuited instead of rallying when it mattered most.

It will be interesting to see how the Ravens defend against Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. Because of his running and big-play ability, most teams would prefer to play zone against Griffin. That keeps him somewhat contained. But last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens appeared to struggle staying in a zone and had communication problems. When an opposing team plays man-to-man against Griffin, that can open up the entire field to him if he gets out of the pocket.

For a few tantalizing moments, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looked like his old self again in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedEx Field. Then his star-crossed career came unraveled again. He was in the process of making one of the signature acrobatic plays that characterized his terrific 2012 season when he landed wrong on his left ankle and tumbled out of bounds in obvious agony. It appeared that he suffered a dislocation and he was carted off the field in apparent tears.

The DC Sports Bog is reporting that Robert Griffin III will get married to Rebecca Liddicoat on July 6 in Virginia, and found the information on The Knot, where the couple registered. A corresponding registry at Bed, Bath and Beyond has the same date, according to the DC Sports Bog, a blog for the Washington Post. The couple met at Baylor and he proposed in 2010. She's from Colorado, previous reports said. What we want to know is whether or not RGIII and his bride will have as much fun taking wedding photos as Joe Flacco and his wedding party did. Here's a reminder of what the Flaccos' wedding album looked like . Either way, we wish RGIII and his fiancée the best of luck.

For all the eye-opening achievements that Robert Griffin III has accomplished 12 games into his rookie campaign, the Washington Redskins quarterback's most remarkable quality might be his ability to protect the football. Griffin has fumbled 10 times - the second-most among quarterbacks, trailing only the San Diego Chargers' Philip Rivers - but he has lost only two. And he has thrown 17 touchdowns against just four interceptions. In his past five contests, Griffin has 10 touchdown passes and one interception.

The Ravens secured a 23-17 win over the Washington Redskins to improve to 3-0 in the preseason.  The Baltimore Sun's reporters, columnists and editors weigh in on the team's win.   Jeff Zrebiec, reporter The number of hits Joe Flacco was taking and the lack of push the Ravens were getting in the run game conjured up memories from last season's struggles. However, otherwise, the Ravens played pretty well. The best sight was the reappearance of the pass rush. Solid play from the makeshift secondary was a welcome development as well. As for the offense, Flacco played a gritty and effective game.

Two words that might come to mind when you think of Kyle Shanahan are nepotism and dysfunction. Shanahan, the son and former offensive coordinator of recently-fired Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, has had to respond to critics who questioned his coaching chops during two different stints as an NFL coordinator, and he was caught in that mess between his dad and Robert Griffin III this season. All that D.C. drama aside -- not that it isn't noteworthy -- what is Kyle Shanahan's style as a coordinator?

Ravens rookie free safety Terrence Brooks chased Robert Griffin III toward the right sideline on the Washington Redskins' first drive in the first quarter. Brooks accelerated as he pursued Griffin and fought through a stiff-arm attempt to shove the quarterback out of bounds for a sack and a loss of 4 yards. "RGIII tried to outrun me, he tried to stiff-arm me, and I take a lot of pride on playing fast and not letting anyone do that to me," Brooks said. "I wasn't even paying attention to who it was. I know what type of player he is, but you can't get caught up in names like that.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder expressed excitement about his team's new chapter and said first-year coach Jay Gruden already has impressed him with his knowledge and work ethic. Snyder, who consented to a brief interview Monday on his way to lunch while at the NFL's annual owners meetings, hadn't spoken to reporters during the 2013 season, or after the 3-13 campaign that resulted in Mike Shanahan's firing. He also hadn't commented on the hiring of Gruden as his eighth head coach.

NFL No doubt that RGIII will start for Redskins in opener, source says After watching Robert Griffin III in practices the past two weeks, several Washington Redskins said they firmly believe he will be the team's starting quarterback in the Sept. 9 regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Orthopedist James Andrews , who repaired Griffin's damaged right knee in January, must give final approval before Griffin is cleared to play, but several people who have been involved in Redskins' practices said Griffin has taken practically all of the snaps with the starting offense last week and this week and he has closely resembled the dynamic player who was named the NFL's offensive rookie of the year last season.
