Titans coach Mike Vrabel on what he sees from the Redskins…

"Well, they're running the ball. Adrian (Peterson) is doing a good job of running. He's found the fountain of youth. He has 220 carries, 900-something yards and 4.2 average. He's running hard. He's running violent. Jay (Gruden) and his staff have done a great job with the number of injuries they've had to get them back in the race. They had a big win last week in Jacksonville. It looks like the quarterback, Josh (Johnson) is more comfortable. They've got some good tight ends. Talk about Jordan Reed, but he was out last week, so we'll see where he's at. Obviously, (Jamison) Crowder is one to worry about. They have a lot of guys—big receivers. (Michael) Floyd is something we have to continue to be mindful of. Defensively, they're stout. They caused 25 turnovers. (Ryan) Kerrigan—the front seven has 36 of their 40 sacks. They've caused 25 turnovers. The DB's have forced 11 fumbles. So, you better know where (Josh) Norman is if you have the ball in your hand. If you're lucky enough to catch it around him, you better put it away because he's going to be coming to punch it out. (D.J.) Swearinger (Sr.) is an active safety, an active, strong safety. He's always around the ball. So, it's going to be a big challenge for us. They're back in the race and so are we. We're excited to be playing a meaningful game here at home."
