Griffin III NFC Offensive Rookie Of The Month

Posted Nov 29, 2012

In only three November games, QB Robert Griffin III completed 57-of-82 passes for 726 yards with eight touchdowns and a passer rating of 124.3.

The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for November.

His selection marks his second of the season (September) and makes him the first player in team history on either side of the ball to earn multiple Rookie of the Month honors.

Griffin III is the first player since Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (2010) to win multiple Rookie of the Month awards in a season.

He is the first member of an NFC East team to win the award multiple times since former Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey won Rookie of the Month twice during the 2002 season.

In only three games in November, Griffin III completed 57-of-82 passes (69.1 percent) for 726 yards with eight touchdowns and a passer rating of 124.3. In addition, he also added 29 carries for 166 yards rushing.

In his last two games, both against divisional opponents, Griffin III completed 33-of-42 passes (78.6 percent) for 504 yards with eight touchdowns.

His passer rating of 146.3 in the past two weeks – now adjusted to include a recent scoring change that altered a Griffin III first-quarter pass to Pierre Garçon in Week 12 at Dallas as a seven-yard run – is the highest two-week rating by a rookie with at least 40 attempts in league history.

For the season, Griffin III has completed 205-of-304 passes (67.4 percent) for 2,497 yards with 16 touchdowns and a 104.6 passer rating.

His totals for pass completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns are all team rookie records, and his 642 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns are both team records by a Redskins quarterback of any experience level.
