12/15/14 - QB Robert Griffin III will start against the Eagles in Week 16 after Coly McCoy re-injured his neck Sunday.
Griffin completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown and ran five times for 46 yards in relief of McCoy on Sunday. Kirk Cousins, who replaced the injured Griffin during the first quarter of Week 2 and kept the job until being benched for McCoy at halftime of Week 7, returns to the backup role this week after being inactive the past six games.
"Robert's got every chance this week ... to take this position and run with it," said coach Jay Gruden, who was more positive on Monday about Griffin's performance against the Giants than he had been immediately after the game. "I was pleased with the way Robert competed and hopefully he can build on that going into next week.
"This is Robert's team right now. ... Hopefully there won't be much of a debate (about the starter going forward) if he does well. He's 24 years old and he's still learning. I don't think we can really judge his future right now based on what he's done. It's a continuing process."
11/23/14 - QB Robert Griffin III completed 11 of 19 passes for just 106 yards and no touchdowns Sunday in a 17-13 loss to San Francisco. Griffin was sacked five times, some of those coming because he held the ball too long. Griffin was sacked six times and passed for only 207 yards the week before in a 27-7 loss to Tampa Bay.
11/16/14 - QB Robert Griffin III was sacked six times Sunday, raising his total on the season to 15 in 115 dropbacks. He is just 4-13 as a starter since the 7-0 run that ended his magical rookie season of 2012.
11/03/14 - QB Robert Griffin III's raw numbers at Minnesota on Sunday, 18 of 25 passing for 251 yards, a touchdown, an interception and seven carries for 24 yards were solid, especially for a quarterback who had missed six-plus games with a dislocated left ankle, who had had just three full practices since the injury and who had played just four-plus previous regular-season quarters in the offense.
However, since the Redskins lost 29-26 to the Vikings, who also came in 3-5, as Griffin said, "Not good enough to win, that is all that matters. I need to play better for that to happen regardless of any box score or any stats. I know that I can play better. I didn't get it done at the end of the game (when his fourth down pass for open receiver Pierre Garcon was low and was too tough to catch). Say what you want about any other phase of the game, but the way I look at it I could have played better."
Griffin was sacked five times and while Minnesota's pass rush won its battle with Washington's pass blockers, especially up the middle, the quarterback also could have thrown some balls away to avoid losing yardage.
"Robert gave us a good chance to win," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "He took some sacks he maybe shouldn't have taken (but) from a protection standpoint, we've got to do a better job. ... He made some great throws, made some poor throws. The one at the end of the half was probably his worst play. We're up 10-0, ball at the 40-yard line and (59) seconds to go, we can't throw a pick there. ... Overall, for his first game back in quite some time, I think he did some good things that really, ultimately should've helped us win that football game."
11/02/14 - QB Robert Griffin III started for the first time since dislocating his left ankle Week 2 against Jacksonville and completed 18-for-28 passing with 251 yards and a touchdown. He also threw critical first half interception that led to Minnesota's first points of the day. Griffin had 24 yards on seven carries running the ball.
