The Washington Redskins have one notable omission from ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s weekly All-NFC East Team.
Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, who was among seven Redskins included on last week’s list — which is not a week-by-week evaluation, but a reflection of an entire season’s body of work — was replaced this week by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
It’s the second time this exact same switch has happened this season.
The Redskins, of course, are coming off last Sunday’s 24-17, roller-coaster loss to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons at FedExField. Though the Redskins (2-3) would certainly like to have that one back, Graziano’s All-NFC East Team this week is an indication that several individual Redskins are playing at very high levels so far this season.
Here’s all the Redskins on this week’s All-NFC East Team, according to Graziano:
- Running back: Alfred Morris
- Fullback: Darrel Young
- Left tackle: Trent Williams
- Center: Will Montgomery
- Outside linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan
- Punter: Sav Rocca
The Redskins play host to the NFC-North leading Minnesota Vikings (4-1) Sunday at FedExField. If Griffin III is able to play — and play well — then I wouldn’t be shocked to see him back on this list at this time next week.
