Due to a neck injury to quarterback Colt McCoy, Robert Griffin III has once again taken the reins at the quarterback position for the Washington Redskins.


Now as it turns out, RBIII started the game on a roll, completing a perfect six out of six passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. And indeed, it looks like there’s nothing like scoring to smooth things over.

However on RGIII’s second drive in what can be interpreted as a “final chance game”, he went back to his old ways by throwing a three and out. So naturally, skepticism reemerged.

But at the end of the half, ironically on a day where all the focus is on fellow Heisman winner Johnny Manziel, RBIII again led his team  to a scoring drive, ending the drive with a brilliant leaping touchdown. #Vintage!!

But wait. That wasn’t a touchdown. The referee reversed the ruling, so instead of a RGIII touchdown, it’s a RBIII fumble.


Stay tuned to the second half of Redskins-Giants for more RGIII action! At the half it’s 10-7 Redskins.
