Good question. This is an interesting challenge, for sure. We'll need some kind of hybrid approach, I would suspect, to both contain RGIII but also not let him complete easy short pass after easy short pass. Jam the receivers more, maybe?

I don't think you want everyone running upfield after him and leaving the middle wide open for his fantastic running ability.

Really wish we had Troy this game. This might be a good time to have Timmons spy this guy all over the field.
