ORCHARD PARK, NY | Quarterback Robert Griffin III expected his reads to open up in his preseason debut, when he finally got to play against an opposing defense that was unfamiliar with the Redskins’ scheme. He found that to be the case Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills.
Griffin was pleased after completing 4-of-6 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.
“Practice is a lot harder than the games,” he said. “Our defense was definitely on top of a lot of stuff we were doing in practice. You come out to the game, and you can see all the reads a lot clearer just because you’re not going against that defense every single day. The holes were a lot bigger, I felt like I was able to read things a lot cleaner and get the ball out of my hands.”
Here’s the full audio of his postgame press conference.
