RG3 solidified Washington’s 38-26 win over Minnesota on Sunday with a spectacular 76-yard touchdown run in the final three minutes of the game. The impressive day prompted tight end Fred Davis to dub the quarterback “Black Jesus.”
“You really can’t say much more,” Davis said in a postgame interview with CSN Washington. “He’s Black Jesus right now. He saved us today. He’s a great player. He makes plays. And he did what he had to do on that third down. We’ve been talking about him protecting himself a lot more, but he seen an opening and made a play. And what can you say? I mean, he’s a great player.”
Griffin went 17/23 for 182 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He also ran for 138 yards and two scores, including the 76-yard TD which was the longest touchdown run by a quarterback since Kordell Stewart in 1996.
Washington’s win snapped an 8-game home losing streak, and they were the first team to score more than 23 points against the Vikings defense.
I never had a doubt that RG3 would be a difference-maker for the Redskins. The only thing I worry about him is his ability to stay on the field after taking hits like the one he did last week.
