RG3 recovers from slow start, puts Skins up at half


After an early interception, Robert Griffin III has the Redskins back on track, and leading the Vikings 17-9 at halftime.

Griffin led the Redskins on an 11-play, 90-yard drive which was capped by an Alfred Morris touchdown run. Then after a Lorenzo Alexander interception gave him the ball back at the Vikings’ 6-yard line, Griffin hit Darrel Young for a touchdown pass on the next play to reverse the Vikings’ early momentum.

RG3 is 11-of-14 passing for 116 yards, and has taken a few hard hits over the course of the game. He can also act, as he gave it the full Vlade Divac treatment when pushed by Erin Henderson, buying a roughing the passer penalty.
