RG3 Shines In Preseason Debut

(August 9, 2012) -- Former Baylor quarterback and Washington Redskins signal caller Robert Griffin III just answered a lot of questions in only 14 plays Thursday night against the Bills.

RG3 was able to show what he can do in a 7-6 victory.

Griffin III wen 4-6 for 70 yards, including his first touchdown in the NFL, all in just a single quarter of play.

Griffin III saved his best work for last in his third and final drive of the game, with the ball at the Redskins' 20-yard line.

On 2nd-and-10, Griffin III found receiver Pierre Garçon down the middle for a 20-yard gain. Two plays later, he found Garçon again, this time for 18 yards.

The aerial attack opened up the ground game for the Redskins, as running back Evan Royster gained 19 yards on the next three plays.

On 3rd-and-three from the Buffalo 20, Griffin III found Garçon for a 20-yard catch and run that ended with Garçon doing a front flip into the end zone.

Griffin III classified his first NFL experience as "extremely good."

"Coach [Mike Shanahan] did a good job calling plays, got me in rhythm and helped get the offense in rhythm on that third drive. That’s what it’s all about," he said. "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."
