You have to hand it to Robert Griffin III. On Thanksgiving he put up 311 yards in a victory over division the division rival Dallas Cowboys, and this past Monday night the rookie from Baylor threw for 163 more yards in a win over the New York Football Giants 17-16.
Following his Thanksgiving performance, Griffin’s jersey became the number one selling jersey on NFL.com and at Dick’s Sporting Goods, ahead of fellow rookie quarterback Andrew Luck of the Colts. Griffin III will also appear on the newest edition of Sports Illustrated for Kids. Finally, Griffin was seen on at the Verizon Center taking in a Washington Wizards game last night, and the Wizards didn’t disappoint. The Wiz won their second game of the season by beating the Miami Heat 105-101. Griffin has not only been beating the entire NFC East, putting the Redskins in the playoff discussion, his jerseys a top seller with the fans, he’s on the cover of SI for Kids, and he sparked the Wizards to upset the daunting Miami Heat. Doesn’t sound like a rookie, but he is.
