Alfred Morris ran the ball, and Robert Griffin III threw it. (And occasionally, of course, RG3 did what RG3 does -- let his spontaneity take him where it will.)
The Washington Redskins were happy to get Robert Griffin III back Sunday after the rookie quarterback suffered a concussion last week. But Griffin had to make do without his top receiving target yet again.
Andrew Luck's first working trip to New York didn't exactly go to plan, though some punishing defense by the Jets had a lot to do with that.

When Robert Griffin III lay on the turf Sunday, concussed by the hit of a charging linebacker, it was easy to overlook the secondary problem that resulted from the play. Not only was Griffin lost for the game with a head injury, but the Washington Redskins also had failed to convert another third down.
Five questions to keep in mind when Washington visits Minnesota.
