RG3 Leads the Redskins Past the Vikings 38-26
- Updated: October 14, 2012
The announcers in the game talked from the onset about the fact that Jim Haslett had spoke about his defense needing three key turnovers to get the victory against the Vikings. Ask and you shall receive, Madieu Williams had an interception he returned for a touchdown, Lorenzo Alexander was able to recover a fumble by Christian Ponder on a sack, and DeAngelo Hall intercepted Ponder as well in the last seconds of the game.
The game looked like it was playing well into the Vikings hand early on as they jumped out to a 9-0 lead behind three field goals by Blair Walsh. From that point the Redskins proceeded to score 24 answered points to take control.
Alfred Morris rushed 16 times for 47 yards and a touchdown but wasn’t much of a factor as RG3 was the main focal point on offense. New kicker Kai Forbath was successful on his first and only kick of the day, a 50 yarder, which was also his first NFL kick.
Robert Griffin III had one of his best games in his short career, he was 17-22, for 182 yards, 1 touchdown and one interception and rushed the ball 13 times for 138 yards and 2 touchdowns, the last one was a 76 yarder (video below). Griffin showed no bad signs from his “mild” concussion of a week ago, after his long TD run the crowd at FedEx Field all chanted…RG3…RG3…RG3!!!
The win improved the Redskins to 3-3 on the year and dropped the Vikings to 4-2.
Hail to the Redskins!
