In Week 14 of the season, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for 242 yards and a touchdown on only 26 throws in a 31-28 victory over the Ravens. Griffin was injured late in the game, but the Ravens‘ defense struggled against RG3.
“We’re on a better field. For all that money down in D.C. man, you’d think that field would be better. That field sucks,” Reed said of the Redskins‘ home turf at FedExField. “That field was all mud. It was like that guy was running on water.”
Reed noted that facing 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick still would be a huge adjustment compared to facing Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Kaepernick will be faster than ever on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s field turf, but the safety said the field should help out the aging Ravens defense.
The 49ers are an extremely difficult offense to prepare for. They have so many different weapons and play variations that can hurt you. The Ravens are happy that they faced the 49ers last year and a team like the Redskins this season.
“It definitely helped us out,” Reed said of facing the Redskins.
