Second Award For Griffin III Is An NFL First

Posted Nov 21, 2012

The NFL announced today that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 11, his second of 2012.

The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 11.

He is the first rookie quarterback to win two Player of the Week awards in a season since the league began awarding them in 1984.

Griffin III also became the first Redskins rookie at any position to win two Player of the Week awards in a season.

His first Player of the Week honor came following his performance during the Redskins’ Week 1 victory against the New Orleans Saints.

In the Redskins’ 31-6 victory against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11, Griffin III completed 14-of-15 passes (93.3 percent) for 200 yards with four touchdowns, finishing the game with a perfect 158.3 passer rating.

He also contributed 84 rushing yards on 12 carries, becoming the first rookie in NFL history to pass for 200 yards, pass for four touchdowns and rush for more than 75 yards in a single game.

Griffin III’s 93.3 completion percentage was the highest by a quarterback with at least four touchdown passes since Pro Football Hall of Famer Steve Young on Oct. 16, 1994.

Griffin III now has 2,193 passing yards and 613 rushing yards this season, making him only the third rookie in NFL history to surpass both 2,000 passing yards and 500 rushing yards in a season.

The last Redskin to win Offensive Player of the Week twice in one season was Santana Moss in 2005, following Weeks 2 and 16.

The last Redskins quarterback to win Offensive Player of the Week twice in one season was Brad Johnson in 1999,following during Weeks 2 and 4.
