When the team started its seven-game winning streak to catapult them from last in the NFC East to eventual division champions with a 31-6 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, it seemed as if everything started to click.
Just a few days later on Thanksgiving, quarterback Robert Griffin III led the Redskins in an incredible display of offensive power in the second quarter when the Burgundy and Gold trounced the Cowboys defense for 28 points before beating Dallas by a final score of 38-31. Then on Monday Night Football, the Redskins eked out a 17-16 victory over the New York Giants to pull the team back to .500.
In Week 14, however, the Redskins were faced with perhaps their biggest obstacle to date.
Late in a down to the wire contest with Washington’s closest geographical rival, Griffin III was knocked out of the game with an injury. At that moment it seemed as if the Redskins winning streak was in jeopardy of coming to an end at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.
Obviously that did not happen as Kirk Cousins led the Redskins to a comeback victory and a 38-21 win the next week in Cleveland.
In the seventh segment of “10 Days With No. 10” on Redskins Nation, the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year told Larry Michael what went through his head after leaving the Ravens game as well as watching the Browns game unfold from the sideline the next Sunday.
Check back with Redskins Nation and the website later as Griffin III will share his thoughts on the last two games of the 2012 regular season.
Hail to the Redskins!
