Up next for Cowboys: Robert Griffin III
Not that the Baylor-ex and Heisman Trophy winner is playing like a rookie.
Griffin completed 14 of 15 passes for 200 yards and four touchdowns Sunday in the Redskins’ 31-6 win against Philadelphia. On the season, Griffin has completed 172 of 262 passes for 1,993 yards with eight touchdown passes and three interceptions. He also has 529 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.
Let’s just say he’s a little different than the last two rookie signal callers the Cowboys have seen in Philadelphia’s Nick Foles and Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden.
“He’s a great football player, there’s no question about that,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s shown that in college and he’s showing that in the National Football League. I didn’t see any details of their game, but I saw that they won big. He’s an outstanding player. And he’s a great, great athlete. You see that on tape and he’s certainly a very mature quarterback at this stage in his career so we are certainly going to have our hands full. We’re going to enjoy this one for another 10 minutes or so and then get on to the Redskins.”
