Watch 4th And 10 Over And Over

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 22, 2012 – 11:40 am

Had the Redskins won yesterday’s battle against the New York Giants, it would’ve been the second straight week that quarterback Robert Griffin III and the Redskins offense had the play.

Last week, it was Griffin III’s 76-yard touchdown run to seal Washington’s 38-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Yesterday, it was a mad scramble by Griffin III on 4th and 10 with the Redskins trailing by four late against the Giants that captured the buzz (above .GIF courtesy of SB Nation).

With 2:07 remaining in the game and Washington trailing 20-16, the Redskins’ offense lined up to attempt to convert a first down on a very unfavorable 4th down with 10 yards to go.

Griffin III, lined up in the shotgun formation, dropped back to pass, and was flushed out of the pocket by a Giants defensive lineman. He ran to his left with another Giants defender chasing him, took three big steps backwards, then ran up and to his right to avoid yet another New York defender.

While leaning on his back foot and falling down, he found tight end Logan Paulsen wide open in the middle of the field for a 19-yard gain, as the Redskins converted the unlikely 4th and 10 attempt.

The impressive aspect about the play was that, by scrambling around and avoiding so many defenders, Griffin III bought his receivers an extra eight seconds to get open – which is exactly what Paulsen did. Three plays later, Griffin III found wide receiver Santana Moss on a perfect pass over the shoulder in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown, and, after the extra point, the Redskins led 23-20 with 1:38 remaining in the game.

You all know how the story ends from there, so I’ll save you from rehashing those memories. But it’s still worth recapping plays like these so we can put them on a growing list of jaw-dropping moments Griffin III is providing Redskins fans.

    That was one of he most impressive plays I have ever seen a Player make – u can tell how much this guy wants to win for his team mates – he never gives up and fights to the end. He is a special player and I am glad he is a Redskin. The loss was a disappointment yes but this team and Robert will be better for it. His day will come when he is the Elite QB like Manning and will lead this team to good things- we have to stand by this man and support this team as we get better.
