Garcon’s Elusive Touchdown Is A Top Play

During the 2012 offseason the Washington Redskins reloaded their offense with several big play, quick-strike weapons on the offensive side of the football.

When free agency’s flood gates were unlocked, the Redskins bolstered their wide receiver core by adding the Super Bowl experienced Pierre Garcon and homegrown talent Josh Morgan.

Then during the annual NFL Draft, they acquired soon-to-be record setting rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris.

Not a bad quartet to repackage your assault around.

In their regular season debut together, the Griffin III-Garcon connection struck early, torching the New Orleans Saints defense for an 88-yard touchdown in the first quarter that was stamped off by the now internationally famous “Griffining” celebration.

Then later in the season the duo struck gold again, only this time the whole country witnessed their magnificence.

NFL AM and NFL.com have been spending countless hours sorting through every play from the 2012 campaign to compile the top-100 plays of last season.

You already know the 2012 NFC East champs will have a handful of cameos on the list.

Coming in at N0.66-Griffin III to Garcon on Thanksgiving Day.

In the second quarter of Washington’s tilt with the Dallas Cowboys, the Redskins offense exploded for 28 points in a 19 play span.

On Washington’s first possession of the second quarter, No. 10’s play-action fake handoff to Morris stupefied the Cowboys defense to give Aldrick Robinson what seemed like a mile of space downfield for a 68-yard touchdown toss.

Then on their next possession, the Redskins worked the ball down to the one yard line where everyone in attendance knew that No. 46 was going to get the pigskin.

But did you think that was going to derail a man who works out 12 hours a day perfecting his craft?


Touchdown Morris.

After a Cowboys three and out, the Redskins got the ball back on their own 29 yard line and wasted little time tacking on six more tallies to the board on Garcon’s over his back shoulder grab.

Pause the video at the :09 mark. Seriously, how many Cowboys does it take to pull down a Redskins receiver?

Apparently more than four.

Use that joke with your Cowboys fans the next time you meet up.

Hail to the Redskins!
