RG3 Gives Redskins Hope, Has 1st Comeback Win

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Robert Griffin III is already carrying the Washington Redskins on his back -- instead of the other way around.

The rookie from Baylor gives the Redskins hope in a way they haven't experienced with many of their quarterbacks over the last two decades.

Griffin now has his first fourth-quarter, hurry-up win, driving the Redskins 56 yards to set up a field goal in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Griffin is on pace to throw for 4,000 yards and run for 1,000.

Now the schedule gets tougher. The Redskins are 2-2, but the two teams they've beaten have a combined record of 1-7. Next up -- the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons.
