Griffin III Goes Down; Redskins Rally To Top Ravens 31-28 in OT

With the Washington Redskins trailing the Baltimore Ravens by eight late in regulation, Robert Griffin III sprained his right knee at the end of a 13-yard scramble.

With Griffith unable to continue, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins stepped in and finished RG3?s work, hitting Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown pass with 29 seconds remaining and then running in the 2-point conversion. Yet another rookie, Richard Crawford, returned a punt 64 yards in overtime to set up Kai Forbath’s 34-yard field goal to give Washington a 31-28 victory.

The Redskins (7-6) won their fourth straight game, putting more pressure on the New York Giants in the race for the NFC East title. The Ravens (9-4) missed an opportunity to clinch an AFC playoff berth and ended a 15-game winning streak following a loss, dropping back-to-back games for the first time since 2009.

Another major Redskins rookie contributor was Alfred Morris, who ran for 122 yards on 23 carries with a touchdown.
