Robert Griffin III took over at quarterback for the Washington Redskins against the New York Giants on Sunday after Colt McCoy left the game with a neck injury.
Griffin came in against the Giants in the first quarter, with Washington down 7-3. He completed his first six passes for 75 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown pass to Chris Thompson to give Washington a 10-7 lead. McCoy completed 4-of-7 passes for 39 yards before his injury.
Griffin, who last started a game on Nov. 23, has thrown for 902 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions this season. He missed six games due to a dislocated ankle before returning, then was benched in favor of McCoy after a loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
