Here are some of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s comments after his team’s 31-6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at FedEx Field:

On the game:
“We were not sharp all the way around but we made the big plays. I think all the guys are satisfied with the outcome.”


On the defense:
“Whenever your defense plays like that, it makes you feel as an offense that you don’t have to press to try to score every time. You can go out there and feel the rhythm of the game. The defense played great the whole game. They had some turnovers, got us the ball in great situations and we capitalized.”

On touchdown passes to Aldrick Robinson and Santana Moss:
“I was wide open on (Robinson’s) touchdown. It was just a matter of was the ball going to come down since I threw it pretty high. The scheme worked. Whenever the coaches draw up a great play for us and it works out exactly how they think it will, we have to capitalize on that. The past couple of weeks, before the bye, we hadn’t done that. Today we did. With Santana’s touchdown, he may not be the biggest guy and I know people make fun of that, but he played big in that moment.”

On his efficient game:
“I didn’t second-guess what my instincts were telling me as far as when to throw and when not to throw or when to run and when not to run. You thank God to be able to have these moments and feel things the right away and it all works out for you.”

On no turnovers:
“(Baylor coach Art) Briles always told me that there is a difference between playing fearless and being stupid. You have to be able to tiptoe that line. If it would have been an interception, the pass to Santana (Moss) would have been stupid. Because it was a touchdown, it was fearless. God blessed me with the ability to move around a lot more than other quarterbacks. You try to use that when you can, if a guy is not open, so you don’t have to force things. But when guys are open, you get them the rock and let them make plays.”

On Philadelphia’s defense:
“They are extremely good against the run and that’s why we had to throw the ball a little bit more. (Alfred) Morris still squeaked out those tough yards and I was able to get outside and make some things happen. … We were able to exploit what they were doing on the outside.”

On recovering after the Carolina loss:
“For me, it was about getting away from the familiar and being able to zero in and refocus on everything. Coach (Mike Shanahan) talks to all of us and their individual coaches talked to them about things they can get better at. I’m not sure what they said but it worked. My mindset wasn’t completely changed but I was energized to go and win however many games we need to win to make the playoffs. Right now, I think it was the most physical I have ever seen our team play as a whole, both offense and defense.
