RG3's Speed Levels The Field For Redskins

ASHBURN, Va. (October 15, 2012) -- It's long been known that a running quarterback changes the dynamic of a game.

When that quarterback can travel the final 60 yards of a 76-yard touchdown run in about 6 seconds, then it truly is a whole new ballgame.

Defenses will watch the video of the Redskins' 38-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings and wonder what they can do to stop Robert Griffin III.

Redskins fullback Darrel Young says offense vs. defense is usually "10-on-11" because the defense doesn't have to account for the quarterback as a strong runner. Young says with Griffin, "it's 11-on-11."

The Redskins are 3-3 and visit the New York Giants next week.
