Hur­ri­cane Joaquin ap­par­ently will blow out to sea and not force the NFL to change the plans for this game, but there may well be wind and rain. The Red­skins want to pound the football, and soggy con­di­tions should suit them. Look for a steady dose of Al­fred Mor­ris and Matt Jones, pic­tured above. But ball se­cu­rity will be key. The run­ning backs have prac­ticed car­ry­ing wet foot­balls all week, so they are pre­pared to deal with the poor con­di­tions. Ob­vi­ously, there will be times when both teams have to throw. But a wet ball will lead to er­rant throws, dropped passes and pos­si­bly in­ter­cep­tions.
