After a slow start against the Colts today, Robert Griffin III led two sustained touchdown drives for the Redskins.Griffin wasnt dazzling, just very efficient. He was 10 of 14 for 73 yards with a touchdown pass to Santana Moss late in the first half. He also ran the ball once for five yards.The Redskins started off looking for a big play as Griffin threw deep and incomplete for Pierre Garon. In the half they went for the long pass three times in all, twice for Garon and once for Leonard Hankerson. All three were incomplete but some believed that it was important for Griffin to air the ball out, something had had done rarely this year either in practice or in the first two preseason games.After two unproductive drives, Griffin and the Redskins got down to business from their own 34. Rookie running back Alfred Morris keyed the drive with five carries for 38 yards and the touchdown. Griffin supported the running game by completing three of three passes for 29 yards including and 18-yard completion to Garon.He had more time to throw on that drive than he did earlier and when the pressure came he was able to step to a good spot and get the pass off.Andrew Luck tied it up with a beautiful 31-yard touchdown pass to T. Y. Hilton and then Griffin went back to work from his own 20. He went 5-6 for 30 yards including a four-yard TD pass to Santana Moss. Griffin took the second-down snap, rolled a few steps to his right, and fired to Moss in the front corner of the end zone.
Ryan Kerrigan joined CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay on Thursday evening to take your questions on Facebook Live, presented by Paisano's Pizza.
What did they get to? Here's a sampling of the questions:
- Does some deep-down part of him wish Robert Griffin III were playing this week when Cleveland comes to town?
- If the Redskins defense were a pizza topping, which would they be?
- Who is the hardest running back to take down?
- How did he get the idea for his sack dance?
That, plus many more, were answered in the nearly 25-minute conversation. Watch it all in the video player below:
An explosive talent with a long-record of off-field issues, Browns receiver Josh Gordon announced Thursday that he will head for rehab.
Gordon missed the entire 2015 season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but when he has played, he has produced. In 14 starts during the 2013 season Gordon caught 87 balls for more than 1,600 yards and nine touchdowns.
A teammate of Robert Griffin III's at Baylor, some in Cleveland hoped that reuniting the QB and WR would bring back their college fireworks. That plan faded first when Griffin got injured Week 1, and while Gordon is still suspended, some hope remained that the two could connect later in the season. For now, it seems that plan will not work.
Without the decision to enter a rehab facility, Gordon would have missed the Redskins game this Sunday due to suspension.
