So many drop backs has led to Griffin having only nine rushing attempts […]
There is no denying that Robert Griffin III hasn’t looked himself in the Redskins first two games despite putting up decent numbers.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a spectacular 2012 season to say the least, but what fans forget is that it started off kinda slow after his initial return to the field following surgery on his torn ACL. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is in the same boat this year - a slow, nothing to write home about post-ACL surgery start, but Peterson...

Led by quarterback Robert Griffin III, Washington failed to get on the scoreboard until almost eight minutes into the third quarter, were out-possessed by almost five full minutes and converted only three of 11 attempts on third down.
Don’t saddle Griffin with all the blame for the loss, though. Hall of...
