Griffin III The NFC Offensive Player Of Week

Posted Sep 12, 2012

The NFL announced today that Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, and it "wasn't close."

The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 1.

He is the first Redskins player to win the award since Clinton Portis in Week 5 of the 2008 season and the first Redskins rookie to receive the honor since Rod Gardner in Week 6 of the 2001 season.

Griffin III, 22, was a nominee for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week following his Week 1 performance against the New Orleans Saints, in which he led his team to a 40-32 road victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in his first career start.

Griffin III — the first quarterback born in the 1990s to lead his team to a win — completed 19-of-26 passes for 320 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

In the process, he became the first player in NFL history to compile 300-plus passing yards, two or more passing touchdowns and no interceptions in an NFL debut.

His 320 passing yards were the second most by a rookie quarterback in Week 1 in NFL history, trailing only Carolina’s Cam Newton’s 422-yard performance last season and trumping 300-yard efforts by Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck (309 in 2012) and Peyton Manning (302 in 1998).
