Anyone who had any doubts about Robert Griffin III's game translating to the NFL, can put them away. Griffin broke into the league today in banner fashion today, leading the Washington Redskins to 40-32 victory over future Hall-of-Famer Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
Griffin had an explosive debut, hitting on 19 of 26 passes for 320 yards and 2 TDs. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner completed passes to eight different receiver, threw no INTs and gained 42 yards on the ground on 10 carries.
In Cleveland, Philadelphia's Michael Vick overcame a four INT afternoon by hitting TE Clay Harbor for a 4-yard TD with 1:23 remaining to eek out a 17-16 win over the Browns.
The wins by Philly and Washington, combined with the Cowboys' victory over the Giants the other night put the Giants all alone in the cellar of the NFC East at 0-1.
