On Sunday, Robert Griffin III said he’d break a personal rule and watch the replay of his scintillating 76-yard touchdown run.
So, now that he’s seen it a dozen times on television, what did the Redskins’ rookie think of his signature highlight?
“I didn’t realize how much I slowed down at the end when I was looking back at the guy,” Griffin said Wednesday during his weekly news conference. “I was enjoying the moment. I don’t usually do stuff like that.”
With the Redskins clinging to a five-point lead and facing a third-and-six at their own 24-yard line late in the fourth quarter, Griffin called a quarterback keeper. He sprinted down the sideline and clinched a 38-26 victory over the Vikings as his teammates and coaches watched in awe.
“I talked to a bunch of the players and coaches and they said that was one of the best moments they’ve ever been a part of,” Griffin continued. “I definitely realize how big it was. It is fun to watch it.”
That said, Griffin claims he’s finished admiring his feat – for now, anyway.
“I’m done watching it, whether it’s one ESPN, or on my phone, or someone else’s phone, I’ve moved on,” he said. “But it’s something that will live on in history. I’m sure in 20 years they’ll still be talking about it – and that’s the great thing about playing at the highest level.”
Ryan Kerrigan, Jordan Reed and Brandon Scherff will skip next week's Pro Bowl in Orlando a team spokesman confirmed to CSN. All three players dealt with injuries late in the season, most notably Reed, and playing in the exhibition game is not in the cards. Trent Williams, however, is still slated to play in the game.
Reed suffered a separated shoulder on Thanksgiving playing against the Dallas Cowboys. For the rest of the season, Reed played through significant pain and his production dipped.
Kerrigan played much of the season with an injured elbow and hurt his finger in the final game against the Giants. Scherff played with ankle pain and was listed on the injury report much of the season's final four games.
For Reed and Scherff, this year marked their first Pro Bowl. The recognition was deserved for both players, and shows that the guard and tight end are gaining national spotlight for their play.
Kerrigan played in the Pro Bowl following the 2012 season. He finished this year with 11 sacks, 2.5 short os his career high 13.5 in 2014.

When longtime Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo lost his starting job to rookie Dak Prescott, there was general consensus that Prescott won the job fair and square when Romo got injured.
Romo himself said as much. But there are still people around the NFL who feel Dallas didn't do right by their 10-year starter.
As Romo was leaving the field after the Cowboys lost to the Packers in the playoffs, Pepper Burruss, Green Bay's director of sports medicine, approached him. A microphone picked up Burruss saying what sounds like, "You deserve better."
Take a listen.
It's possible Burruss could have meant something else, like Romo deserved better injury luck. Maybe.
Also keep in mind that Romo may have been leaving the field as a Cowboy for the final time of his career. What a note to leave on...
The 36-year-old has said he still wants an opportunity to start in the NFL. That won't happen in Dallas, so it's likely he'll move on to another team this offseason.
According to Adam Schefter on ESPN Radio, the Cowboys may be willing to trade Romo to the team of his choice.
Speculation has linked him to the Broncos, Bears, Jets and Texans.
