Handing out labels following the Skins’ 38-26 win over Minnesota …
Robert Griffin III — It’s hard to discuss RGIII without gushing (see: Fred Davis calling him Black Jesus), so let’s keep it simple. His line: 17-22, 182 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT passing (for a 97.2 rating) and 138 yards and 2 TD rushing. His new signature play: the 76-yard TD on 3rd-and-6, up five with 2:43 left in the fourth. It was the longest TD run by an NFL quarterback in 16 years, and it was more or less the game-winner.
Madieu Williams — I couldn’t pick him out of a lineup, but he made a real nice pick-six and 12 tackles against his former team today. (That’s four defensive touchdowns for the Redskins on the season, by the way.)
Lorenzo Alexander — Had a fumble recovery, a sack and a half, and seemed like he was all over the place out there.
Kai Forbath — Nailed a 50-yarder, his first and only FG attempt as a Redskin. Holy shit.
Trent Williams — Kept Jared Allen off the stat sheet, pretty much.
Darrel Young — Fullback touchdown! I love me some Darrel Young.
London Fletcher — Ten tackles, two passes defensed and a sack.
Joshua Morgan — Three catches for 42, but his block on RGIII’s 76-yarder was real nice.
Niles Paul — Blew up a punt returner and caught a punt inside the five.
The red zone — Skins went 3-for-3. Vikings went 2-for-7. Also, the channel.
Mike Shanahan — Way to get the eight-game-home-losing-streak monkey off your back!
Kyle Shanahan — I don’t know how much of it is RGIII vs. how much of it is the rest of the offense vs. how much of it is Shanahan’s kid, but the Skins scored 38 points today and are averaging 29.7.
Jim Haslett — Whatever I said about Kyle Shanahan and the offense is pretty much true of Jim Haslett and the defense.
Dezmon Briscoe — Had a pretty bad drop, which means he has at least one more bad drop than he does catches.
Brandon Banks — One punt return for one yard. I’d love if he caught the ball and just ran more or less straight to the end zone with it.
Pierre Garcon — Inactive again.
Dick Stockton — Confused things, such as interceptions and completions, intentional grounding and roughing the passer, and RGIII and RJIII.
Alfred Morris — A career-low 47 yards, but scored his fifth touchdown.
The NFC East — At 3-3, the Redskins play the 4-2 Giants next Sunday for a share of the division lead.
