Robert Griffin III
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 Trophy-winning quarterback from Baylor threw a career-high four touchdown passes while completing all but one of his 15 attempts (to nine different targets) for 200 yards (a 158.3 passer rating) and added 84 yards on 12 carries. Washington (4-6), which ended a three-game skid, won't have time to celebrate with a date in Dallas on Thanksgiving. Philadelphia (3-7) will have a week to stew over the first six-game losing streak of coach Andy Reid's 14-year tenure, which is even more likely to end next month after this performance. Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles, making his first start in...

In his 10th NFL game, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III set the franchise record for completions by a rookie.
The No. 2 overall pick of the draft, Griffin connected with fullback Darrel Young for a six-yard touchdown pass his 173rd completion of the season.

Many thanks to @dhm (via Jeff) for this GIF of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie taking a cheap shot at Robert Griffin III in the second quarter of today’s game. Also many thanks to DRC for whiffing completely, and to RGIII for throwing three touchdowns (and counting).
Years ago in the NFL, when Thanksgiving Day came it always meant that the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys would be playing each other. The schedule has always reflected of having the two teams play each other either on Thanksgiving Day or the week of Thanksgiving or right around Thanksgiving. 2012 will renew that traditonal Turkey Day game between the Redskins and Cowboys...

Griffin’s two long touchdowns...

Handing out labeling following Skins games. Today, a 31-6 win over Philly …
Robert Griffin III — His numbers (14-15 passing, four TD, 158 rating, 85 yards rushing) were incredible, and the sequence where he scrambled for a first down on third-and-6 and then threw a 49-yard bomb for a touchdown on the next play was sublime.
Brandon Meriweather — Played well in return...
IT WAS OVER WHEN... Redskins QB Robert Griffin III dropped back to pass and, as the pocket closed around him, he calmly fired a frozen rope of a pass to the outside shoulder of TE Logan Paulsen, who hauled the ball in and twisted in the defender's arms into the end zone. The extra point put the Redskins up 31-6 with 10:35 left in the game.
STATISTICALLY SPEAKING... Both...
Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 11 in the National Football League! Andy Reid doesn’t make it till the end of the season now, right? If Philly keeps having games like this I can’t see this franchise keeping Reid as the head coach.
All eyes will be on Nick Foles come Sunday at FedEx Field. Photo via New York Daily News.
We all know that football is a team sport and that to get a win, all phases of the game must come together to propel a group to victory. But come Sunday, it’s going to be all about the quarterbacks.
