Latest Alf Morris Items
Robert Griffin III is Washington's MVP and easily could be the NFL's Rookie of the Year. But Alfred Morris earned both distinctions for the regular season finale. On national TV with Dallas in town and a playoff berth at stake, Morris delivered a statement Sunday and made history in the process.
As seven NFL head coaches lost their jobs Monday, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan implied offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, his son, wouldn't agree to interview requests until after Washington's playoff run ends.

Robert Griffin III sat at his locker, still wearing his gold game pants, and tried to piece together the NFL's complex playoff puzzle. Next to him, Rex Grossman slid a bright blue tie around his neck. Griffin and Grossman wondered aloud whether the Washington Redskins' heart-stopping 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday was enough to qualify them for the playoffs.
Six weeks ago, at 3-6, advancing to the playoffs was a dream scenario for the Washington Redskins. However, after Sunday's 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles — their sixth in a row — the Redskins are a season-finale win away from capturing the NFC East title. In his return, Robert Griffin III threw for 198 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, while Alfred Morris rushed for 91 yards and a score.
