Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III did a little bit of everything on Sunday in a 31-6 win over the Eagles and he’s been named the NFC offensive player of the week award for the second time.
Griffin is the first rookie quarterback since 1984 to win offensive player of the week honors twice in a season. He was previously honored for his work in the Week One victory over the Saints and was also named the league’s offensive rookie of the month for September.
Griffin completed 14-of-15 passes for 200 yards against the Eagles. Four of those completions went for touchdowns and Griffin added 84 rushing yards as well as the Redskins overwhelmed the Eagles. Griffin has completed 67.1 percent of his passes on the year for 2,193 yards and 12 touchdowns and his 101 passer rating is good for fifth in the league among qualified quarterbacks.
The Redskins get back in action on Thursday against the Cowboys. Griffin will be returning to Texas, where he grew up and went to college, for the first time as a professional.
