On this week's Akron Beacon Journal and Ohio.com podcast, Browns beat writer Nate Ulrich explains why Robert Griffin III should start when the Browns play the Bengals on Dec. 11.

As the Browns head into the bye week, Griffin is finally getting healthy after injuring his shoulder in Week 1 of the season. That should open things up for him starting over Cody Kessler and Josh McCown.
