RG3-Paulsen Connection Ranks Top-50

Last year the Washington Redskins were one of the most exciting teams in the league to watch.

If it wasn’t Robert Griffin III speeding past secondaries that aren’t used to such quickness from a quarterback, Alfred Morris turning football fields into ballparks, or London Fletcher saving his best for when it counted the most, you could bet that someone on the 53-man roster was going to make a big play each quarter.

Today, along with some help from NFL.com, we look back on one of what seemed like a million unthinkable plays courtesy of No. 10 himself.

Throughout the offseason, NFL.com has gone back and looked through every single play that happened during the 2012 season to narrow down enough plays to make a top-100 list from the season that was.

Before I go any further, this isn’t the first time the Burgundy and Gold have appeared.

Pierre Garcon’s catch-and-dash to the endzone against the Cowboys (No. 66) and Santana Moss’ jumpball touchdown against the Eagles (No. 64) were on NFL.com’s list as well.

Well we already have a play against Dallas checked off as well as one against Philly, so it only seems right to have a play against the Giants surface.

Insert Griffin III to Logan Paulsen in Week 7 as the 49th best play from 2012.

Just a few seconds before the two minute warning of the Redskins’ first NFC East battle of the year, Griffin III kept the Burgundy and Gold alive with a 19-yard completion to Paulsen—all after juking a few Giants.

Not only did the fourth quarter play keep the Giants defense stuck on the field, it eventually set up this beautiful touchdown from Moss (expect that play to make a cameo on the countdown at some point).

The AP Offensive Rookie of the Year would finish the day with over 345 combined yards and two touchdowns while Paulsen filled in for the injured Fred Davis with a career-high 76 receiving yards.

Keep tabs with the blog in the coming days, there’s more from where this came from.

Hail to the Redskins!
