Another award for Redskin's quarterback RG3

WASHINGTON (WWBT) -- Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was named Pro Football Weekly's NFL overall rookie of the year on Monday. That MIGHT be a preview of winning the Associated Press' offensive rookie of the year award, widely considered to be the 'official' rookie of the year award, when it is announced on Feb. 2

The last two winners, St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford and Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, won PFW's rookie of the year award and then went on to take the AP award as well.

Griffin in 15 games completed 258 of 393 passes (65.6 percent) for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, five interceptions and a passer rating of 102.4. He also rushed 120 times for 815 yards and seven touchdowns.

His 102.4 passer rating, 1.3 interception rate and 815 rushing yards are NFL records for rookie quarterbacks. Griffin also led the NFL in yards per pass attempt (8.14), yards per carry (6.8) and fewest interceptions thrown among players with at least 300 pass attempts.
