Clinton Portis: If you don't respond with a HUGE game after unforgivable comments on the radio, then shame on you. Playing the Bengals helps, but know this: the Bengals have done a decent job against the run recently and only two backs have surpassed 100 yards vs. them. Still, the Redskins will try to power them on the ground and you gotta figure they'll be leading in the fourth quarter – which means a heavy dose of Portis.
Jason Campbell: It would be hard to sit him considering the opponent. The Bengals have issues at corner aside from Leon Hall. They don't pressure the passer, either. This is a get healthy game for Jason.
Chris Cooley: Sounds like a broken record, but all this applies to Cooley, too. The only question is will he score? The Redskins are starting to make more of an emphasis on getting the ball to him in the red zone. The Bengals also struggle vs. tight ends.
Shaun Suisham: The Redskins should score more than 24 points, which means a busy day for Suisham.
Redskins defense: They're facing Ryan Fitzpatrick and they have a healthy secondary, for a change. Why, they might even record a sack or two. Fitzpatrick is actually decent in taking care of the ball. But this is a no-brainer.
