Pregame notes

There are not any surprises among the list of Redskins inactives. Cornerback Quinton Dunbar and wide receiver Paul Richardson, Jr. are both active on the injury report this week.


Washington Redskins (5-2) vs. Atlanta Falcons (3-4)
Kick off: 1 p.m., FedEx Field
TV: Fox | Radio: 630, 980 AM; 92.7, 94.3, 105.9 FM
line: Redskins by 2

During their three-game winning streak, the Redskins have run the ball effectively with Adrian Peterson, forced turnovers and limited opponents' top offensive weapons. All three of those tasks could be a little more difficult against the Falcons, who look to get back to .500 after starting 1-4.

Redskins all-pro left tackle Trent Williams, a key component of Washington's eighth-ranked rushing attack, wants to miss the game after undergoing thumb surgery. Ty Nsekhe wants to start in his place. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been in the care of the ball this season with 15 touchdowns against only two interceptions. Defensively, Washington bolsters its secondary by trading for packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Tuesday. Clinton-Dix and his new teammates wants to have their hands full against the NFL's third-ranked passing opener, led by Ryan and wide receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.
