The Redskins got their second big play of the day and they have opened up some daylight between themselves and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Redskins just completed a 55-yard drive with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Robert Griffin III to Logan Paulsen. The rookie quarterback fired the ball into the tight end a few yards for the goal line and Paulsen dragged some defenders to get in for the score.
It was Griffin’s fourth touchdown pass of the day. With about nine minutes left to play, Griffin has a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3 with 13 completions on 14 attempts for 191 yards and the four TD’s.
Midway through the third quarter, Robert Griffin III dropped back, scrambled, and launched a deep pass to Santana Moss, who was sandwiched by two defenders. Moss got between the two, went up, grabbed the ball inside the five and went backwards into the end zone. It was a 61-yard touchdown pass and it gave Washington a 24-6 lead with 5:02 left in the third quarter.
There was a moment of suspense before the crowd at FedEx Field exploded. A flag was thrown on the play in the area that is normally means offensive holding. It was assumed that Moss’ efforts were for nothing but
It was the second long touchdown pass for Griffin. IN the second quarter he heaved one to Aldrick Robinson, who was all alone on the end zone. He gathered it in for a 49-yard touchdown.
