(Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports)

After a solid but injury-marred first season with the Redskins in 2012, receiver Pierre Garçon starred in his second year in Washington. Garçon had 113 catches for 1,346 yards to go with five touchdowns. The 113 receptions set a new Redskins single season record, and by most accounts, Garçon delivered the best performance by a Redskins receiver since the prime of Gary Clark and Art Monk, and maybe ever.

While Garçon was breaking Washington records, DeSean Jackson was racking up big numbers in Philadelphia. Jackson's 2013 season produced similar yardage numbers to Garçon, 1,332 compared to 1,346, but Jackson got the yardage on significantly less catches while scoring more touchdowns. Jackson's stat line, 83 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns, landed him in the Pro Bowl.

Garçon and Jackson play slightly different games. While both have speed, Jackson's is elite, making him one of the best deep threats in the NFL. Garçon has more size, and uses it for tougher catches in traffic. But now that both are on the same team who will quarterback Robert Griffin III get the ball to most?

Will Jackson's yardage totals dip? Will Garçon's receptions dip? Will the emergence of Jackson and Garçon open the offense up for Jordan Reed or Andre Roberts?
