Big-Game Redskins Role Reversal for RG3, Shanahan

Robert Griffin III sounds like the coach. Mike Shanahan sounds like a player.

As the Washington Redskins prepare for the winner-takes-the-division regular season finale vs. the Dallas Cowboys, rookie quarterback Griffin spoke Wednesday about treating the game like any other. He said he'll tell his teammates to not make the moment "so big that you can't grab ahold of it."

Shanahan then took to the podium and took the other approach. He said Sunday's matchup is not a "normal game." He said it's a time when players can't make mistakes and that it's the type of game that can make a career.

The Redskins are 9-6. The Cowboys are 8-7. Sunday's winner takes the NFC East, although Washington could still get a wild card berth with a loss.

1. Always sweet to watch Dallas have to get their white unis muddy

Sweeter to watch Romo screw up his teams chances ...again.
