When everything was on the line, the Washington Redskins turned to their young leader to guide them to their first NFC East title since 1999.
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III orchestrated that performance last Sunday in Washington’s 28-18 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, a win-or-go-home matchup that led to Sunday’s Wild Card Round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks at FedExField.
Griffin III was mic’d up for this critical NFC East championship game for NFL Films and the league’s show, “Sound FX,” much like middle linebacker London Fletcher was in this year’s Monday Night Football game vs. the New York Giants.
The Griffin III video is below; but first, here’s some of my personal favorites from the quarterback in this game:

There weren’t many people at FedExField last Sunday who felt bad for Tony Romo.
But after Romo threw three interceptions in the 28-18 loss to the Redskins — including a pick late in the fourth quarter to outside linebacker Rob Jackson that led to Washington’s final touchdown — the Dallas Cowboys quarterback had at least one supporter wearing burgundy and gold.

The Cleveland Browns have had a very opportunistic defense this season. In one game, they forced eight turnovers against the Pittsburgh Steelers, while in another, they got seven sacks against the Dallas Cowboys.
Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden found out that the Washington Redskins’ defense also likes to take advantage of its own opportunities to make a play.
Weeden was mic’d up for NFL Films for last Sunday’s game against the Redskins at Cleveland Browns Stadium — a 38-21 Washington win — and it’s a perfect representation of the ups and downs that can occur for an NFL quarterback throughout a game.
The entire mic’d up video is below, but here’s a few highlights from a Redskins perspective:

WARNING: Don’t read this post or watch the video below unless you want to like London Fletcher even more.
You want intensity from your leaders during a critical game down the stretch against the divisional leaders? Redskins veteran middle linebacker London Fletcher defines intensity.
Fletcher was mic’d up for the Monday Night Football matchup against the New York Giants, a game that the Redskins rallied to win 17-16 to move a game back of the NFC East-leaders and reigning Super Bowl champions.
Fletcher — the undisputed emotional leader of the team — was all jacked up, and I’m so glad that he was chosen to be mic’d up for the broadcast and for NFL Films. At 37 years old, his passion and excitement for the game has never wavered.
Below is the video, but here are a few of my favorite snippets (though words don’t do it justice):

Chris “Swaggy” Baker knows the importance of trying to stay in shape as a youngster in his early teens.
Baker said he was about 6-feet tall and weighed around 200 pounds by the time he was 10 years old, so his incredible size and strength was both a blessing and a curse.
Baker and running back Alfred Morris on Tuesday went to Godwin Middle School for an NFL Play 60 event in which the 2012 Play 60 Super School of the Year was also awarded a $10,000 check to further physical education.
Baker talked with the kids about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and then let his actions do the talking by going through the various Play 60 stations with the students (see above).
Spoiler: the video ends with Baker and a group of students imitating “Happy Days” character Arthur Fonzarelli (see right).
Anyway, Tuesday’s event certainly wasn’t the first time the colorful Baker has been caught on camera showing off his swagalicious style.
