Ed Reed believes that facing Robert Griffin III last month has helped the Baltimore Ravens prepare for Colin Kaepernick in the Super Bowl.

Ed Reed has said that facing the Washington Redskins towards the end of the regular season has helped the Baltimore Ravens to prepare for the Super Bowl.

The Ravens struggled to contain Robert Griffin III in their game against the Redskins in December, which they lost in overtime.

The safety told reporters: "It definitely helped us out. 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. That field was all mud. It was like that guy was running on water."

Like Griffin, Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers is also known as a mobile quarterback.

The 49ers face the Ravens in Sunday's Super Bowl in New Orleans.
