LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — With Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins out, Rex Grossman and Pat White each staked a claim for a spot on the Washington Redskins roster as the third quarterback.

Showing why he has been employed in the NFL for 11 seasons, Grossman passed for 144 yards, behind an 8-of-14 effort that included a 7-yard scoring strike to Pierre Garçon in three first half series. The veteran was in for 23 plays before White entered in the second quarter with the Redskins up 10-7 over the Buffalo Bills.

White capitalized on his first half opportunities, completing four of seven passing attempts for 59 yards and found the end zone on a 14-yard rush. He was also sacked twice before halftime.

The pair alternated series in the second half with Grossman finishing the day 11-of-21 for 171 yards and the touchdown.

White continued to raise eyebrows, causing some to wonder whether he has an opportunity to unseat his long-tenured competition to become the third-stringer. He finished the day 7-of-14 passing for 96 yards, but added a 26 yards on three rushing attempts including the score.
