Quick Take: RG3, Redskins down Bills

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Thursday's preseason games

» Robert Griffin IIIlooked like he belonged. There wasn't anything flashy in his 4-of-6 passing, 70-yard, one-touchdown performance, but that's kind of the point. He stood tall in the pocket. He was protected well. He found secondary receivers. Griffin looked especially good in comparison to Rex Grossman's 2-of-10 performance.

» Best moment of this game: Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams had to bear hug Griffin back from trying to tackle Bills safety George Wilson after a botched handoff to Evan Royster turned over the ball. Veteran move by Williams.

» Evan Royster is the clear starting running back in Washington over Roy Helu. Neither back shined Thursday.

» In the battle of the backup quarterbacks for Buffalo, Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen both struggled throwing the ball. At least Young led the team in rushing.

» Bills running back C.J. Spiller had a drop and a touchdown-erasing penalty during his brief time in the game. This happens too much with him.
