"It felt extremely good to come out (and play)," Griffin III told Rick "Doc" Walkeron on the Redskins Radio Network. "Coach did a good job calling plays, got me in rhythm and helped get the offense in rhythm on that third drive. And that's what it's all about. You don't always have to go out and try to put together the best scheme to the one play to the one route that's going to be wide open. Sometimes you have got to go out and out-execute the team."
Griffin's final pass of the night was a slip screen to Pierre Garcon, who took it 20 yards before somersaulting into the end zone for a touchdown that capped an eight-play, 80-yard drive covering nearly four minutes.
