After losing their first preseason contest 18-13 to the New York Giants, the Steelers are trying to get things on track. One of the key players to watch is Jarvis Jones, the outside linebacker who was the top pick of Pittsburgh in the draft.
Also worth watching is the running back battle going on for Mike Tomlin's crew. Le'Veon Bell is probable for the contest with a sore knee that held him out of the Steelers first game. Bell is battling with Jonathan Dwyer for the top spot on the depth chart.
Washington will be without its starting quarterback in Robert Griffin III for every game in the preseason, leaving Kirk Cousins to showcase his talent. In a win over the Tennessee Titans last week, Cousins completed 6-of-7 passes for 52 yards and a touchdown.
Wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is also trying to get his season off on the right foot after showing vast improvements over his rookie year in 2012. The ex-Miami Hurricane had 38 catches for 543 yards and three touchdowns last year and played well versus Tennessee, hauling in four balls for 38 yards and a score.
