The race for the offensive rookie of the year may come down to the wire this season.
While Andrew Luck is winning and giving hope to Colts fans in Indianapolis, Robert Griffin III is doing things on the football field we’ve never seen before. It’s not hyperbole to say the NFL has never seen a player with Griffin’s combination of speed, accuracy and arm strength. Steve Young may be the closest comparison you can make, but Young had moderate speed, not world-class speed.
Griffin had one of those games on Sunday that just makes you say, “Wow.” He completed 14 of 15 passes for 200 yards and four touchdowns. He also led the Redskins in rushing with 84 yards on 12 carries. Needless to say, Griffin’s quarterback rating was a perfect 158.3 on the afternoon.
Take a look at one of Griffin’s four TD passes, this one 49 yards to Aldrick Robinson, in the video below.

Andrew Luck was the most hyped player to enter the draft in decades, did he have any chance of living up to the expectations? Now that we're more than half way through the season we should take a look as some of the postseason awards. We all knew that Rookie of the Year would come down to the #1 and #2 picks in the draft.
Here's a look at their seasons:
LANDOVER, Md. - Washington had lost eight straight games to rookie quarterbacks over seven seasons. Philadelphia had jumped ahead by a wide margin the past two years at FedEx Field. However, those Redskins teams didn't have Robert Griffin III. Washington's rookie quarterback led the Redskins to a surprisingly easy 31-6 victory over the visiting Eagles on Sunday. The Heisman...
It wasn't pretty and the Indianapolis Colts know it.
Now all they can do is try to bounce back after an embarrassing 59-24 loss at New England on Sunday.
The Colts had four turnovers, and two of Andrew Luck's three interceptions were returned for touchdowns. Interim coach Bruce Arians said the mistakes the rookie quarterback made were just technical errors.
Can Andrew Luck carry the day for the Colts vs the Patriots? Stranger things have happened to a New England defense that has had issues stopping the pass.

I’ve been licking my chops about this one all week, since the Colts dismantled the Jaguars 9 days ago on prime time. They will be in tough as they face the AFC powerhouse Patriots. In a rivalry that used to feature the two best quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, we now have a battle between rookie quarterback sensation Andrew Luck facing off against Brady.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, two old rivals, met Sunday for the first time since Peyton Manning moved on to Denver. Star rookie Andrew Luck is now the Indianapolis quarterback, and he showed some of the special stuff he possesses, but New England pulled away and beat the Colts 59-24 in a wild one. The Patriots tied the franchise record...
