According to ESPN, Kirk Cousins will start for the Redskins when they visit the Falcons on Sunday. The NFL Network also reports that Robert Griffin III will be inactive for the game, meaning Rex Grossman will be the backup to Cousins.

Shanahan said in a press conference on Wednesday that the decision to make RGIII inactive was made in efforts to prevent the franchise quarterback from getting hurt. But that reasoning makes little sense when you consider that RGIII started last Sunday in a blizzard versus the Chiefs. The Redskins haven’t had realistic playoff hopes since the start of the season so why RGIII played last Sunday makes little sense when you consider Shanahan’s reasoning.

It’s becoming apparent that Shanahan’s days in Washington are numbered. Reports state that he was ready to leave the team before its playoff game last year against the Seahawks, but re-considered when RGIII got hurt in the loss. Either way, it would appear as though he’ll be moving on sooner rather than later.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Redskins are now a 7.5-point road underdog versus the Falcons after opening as a 6-point dog. The total for Sunday’s game is currently sitting at 49.5.
