Detroit Lions battle Washington Redskins Sunday

The Washington Redskins make their third attempt to get into the win column when they host the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Washington was unable to slow down the opposition's offense in its first two games, allowing 33 points in a season-opening home loss to the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles and 38 to the Packers in a setback at Green Bay last week. Robert Griffin III has yet to regain his form since suffering a torn ACL in last season's playoffs, getting off to slow starts and barely getting involved in the Redskins' ground game.

Detroit's rushing attack could be a concern Sunday as Reggie Bush is questionable with a left knee injury suffered in last week's road loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Bush was limited to two carries in the second half after taking a helmet to the knee in the second quarter and may watch Joique Bell fill in against Washington.

The Lions look to avoid a 22nd consecutive road loss - including playoffs - to the Redskins.
