What we'll see


First-year Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III squares off against second-year Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton when the Bengals visit the Redskins, the league's highest-scoring team. Cincinnati enters as a three-point underdog.(1 p.m., CBS-27, WBVX-FM 92.1)


Jeff Gordon has the pole position for Round 2 of NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup. Tony Stewart won the Sylvania 300 last year, and Kasey Kahne won this season's first race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but Brad Keselowski is the hot driver of the moment. He won last week's Chase opener in Chicago.(2 p.m., ESPN, WLXO-FM 96.1)


With Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings questionable because of a groin injury for the Packers' game against Seattle, former Kentucky standout Randall Cobb could play a starring role in the national spotlight on Monday Night Football. Cobb, the team's third-leading receiver this season, is nursing a hamstring injury but is listed as probable. (8:30 p.m., ESPN)


If past success counts for anything in the Ryder Cup, Europe has a significant advantage over the United States. The Americans do not have a single player with a winning Ryder Cup record. The Europeans have eight. No matter the statistics, both teams are loaded for the 39th Ryder Cup matches Friday through Sunday at Medinah, Ill. The 24 players from each team all are among the top 35 in the world rankings. Europe has nine players who have combined to win 15 tournaments this year. The United States has 11 players who have combined to win 15 tournaments this year.(8 a.m., ESPN)


The last time South Carolina visited Kentucky, the Cats rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit to pull off a 31-28 upset of the then-No. 10-ranked Gamecocks in 2010. UK paid the price for that with a 54-3 beatdown last season in Columbia. Is South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier done exacting revenge for his only loss ever to Kentucky? (7 p.m., ESPN or ESPN2)
