    Robert Griffin III (concussion) QB -- PROBABLE -- Washington Redskins
    Coach Jay Gruden declined to say if RGIII would be active or where he'd stand on the depth chart after the quarterback was cleared from his concussion Friday. NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported Saturday that Colt McCoy will be listed as the Redskins No. 2 quarterback vs. the Dolphins, per sources informed of the situation.

    Like it matters!!!

    Dolphins at Redskins -- 74 degrees / Chance of rain (38 percent)

    In 2014, seven of the 12 teams that reached the playoffs won in Week 1: ARI, CAR, BAL, PIT, CIN, IND, DET, DAL, NE, SEA, GB, DEN.

    2014 playoff teams that lost in Week 1: BAL, IND, DAL, NE, GB -- three of the five lost to other playoff teams (BAL vs. CIN, IND at DEN & GB at SEA).
    Since the playoffs expanded to 12 teams in 1990, 53.1 percent of teams (204 of 384) that won their season openers went on to make the playoffs.

    Miami Dolphins at Washington Redskins






    The 2014 Redskins allowed the second-highest passer rating in NFL history to opposing QBs (108.3), better than only the 2008 Detroit Lions, who went 0-16 (110.9). This offseason, the Redskinsreplaced defensive coordinator Jim Haslett with Joe Barry. Barry's last season as a defensive coordinator? In 2008, for the 0-16 Lions.
    Kirk Cousins' completion percentage and passer rating in the first half of 2014: 64.9 percent and 104.2 rating. In the second half of games -- after teams could make adjustments -- those numbers fell to 57.8 percent and a 63.9 passer rating.
    Cousins threw an interception on 4.4 percent of his pass attempts last season -- highest percent in NFL among QBs with 200-plus pass attempts. Since 2012, Cousins has thrown 19 interceptions, most in the NFL among QBs with fewer than 450 pass attempts.
    DeSean Jackson's 2014 season: 56 receptions, 1,169 yards, six TDs. Since entering the NFL in 2008, no player has more receptions of at least 25 yards than Jackson.
    Miami earned the NFL's second-best rushing average last season (4.69 yards per carry), behind only theSeahawks (5.3) -- it marked the fifth-highest rushing average in franchise history.
    Ryan Tannehill was sacked 46 times in 2014, third-most of any quarterback (Blake Bortles, Colin Kaepernick).
    Lamar Miller's 2014 season: 216 carries, 1,099 yards, eight TDs. First Miami RB to rush for 1,000 yards since Reggie Bush in 2011. His 5.09 yards per carry trailed only Ravens' Justin Forsett.
    The Dolphins are scheduled to start the season against six starting QBs who have a combined .379 winning percentage and zero playoff wins -- Cousins is first.
    Matchup to watch: Ndamukong Suh vs. rookie Brandon Scherff

    DOGGIE DOO!!
    Kirk Cousins proves his worth vs. Dolphins

    Kirk Cousins throws for 350 yards and three touchdowns in a shootout with the Dolphins. Miami plays an uptempo style, which will result in more pass attempts for the opposition as well. Cousins averaged nearly 100 more passing yards per game than Robert Griffin III last season and threw more touchdown passes in six games (10) than RGIII and McCoy combined to toss in 14 games (eight). For all of the hand-wringing over his ill-timed interceptions, Cousins has proven capable of moving the chains in Jay Gruden's offense. -- Chris Wesseling

    For the rest

    I think 150 yrds, 3 INTs, 6 sacks, 0 TDs before getting injured. Now that's a bold prediction.
    53.1% here we come.

    Actually against this Miami pass rush, the 2nd and 3rd string QBs could play more snaps than the starter. What happens if all 3 get knocked out of the game????

    'Matchup to watch: Ndamukong Suh vs. rookie Brandon Scherff'

    Dunno if I'd consider that a 'matchup' so much as a slaughter waiting to happen. Scherff has been terrible. He washed out at tackle, so they moved him inside to Guard and he has hasn't been much better. He was the primary reason Bob Griffin was knocked out by getting over run by a former undrafted rookie DT.

    Suh has to be licking his chops in anticipation... Scherff struggled against nobodies. Doubt he does any better against our talented DL players. Skins best have a hearse ready for the QBs.

    I'd LOVE to see our D-line BLOW up their OL on the first play to set the tone...
