Griffin back on run in Redskins' win
LANDOVER, Md. — Robert Griffin III's concussion was on everyone's mind as he dropped back on third and 6, with the Redskins trying to put the game away.
"I took off running and got to the sideline, thought about running out of bounds — because everyone's been telling me that lately," he said with a big smile. "And I felt like I had the guy outflanked, and then I just took off running. And the rest is history."
His 76-yard scoring run put the game away, and dismissed thoughts that his first serious shot to the head as a pro was going to stop RG3 from being RG3.
The longest scoring run by an NFL quarterback in 16 years was part of Griffin's 138-yard rushing performance in beating the Vikings. The former college hurdler ran for two scores and threw for another as Washington snapped its eight-game home losing streak after falling behind 9-0 early.
