There’s just no way to dance around it. Robert Griffin III is truly a “special” football player. No one play confirms that like the 76-yard-run untouched for a touchdown that sealed the Washington Redskins 38 – 26 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Coming off a loss to Atlanta in which Griffin, affectionately known as “RG-3″, was knocked out by a vicious hit and suffered a mild concussion, he showed absolutely no fear whatsoever in coming back onto the field and rushing for 138 yards and two TDs to lead the Radskins to victory.

Most QBs would understandably be a little timid in returning from a concussion, being careful not to put themselves in harm’s way or be set up for another vicious shot. Not Griffin. He ran it, he scrambled with it, he was chased, hit, and knocked down several times through the course of the game. Yet, the rookie stood in there, delivered the football, kept his team’s morale intact, then took off for that fourth quarter scamper that will go down in Redskins history. Great moment, an even greater run……

Meanwhile, around the league, the Dallas Cowboys went into Baltimore, hit the Ravens in the mouth, ran the ball down their throats, and then lost on a last-second missed field goal. With no Ray Lewis in the 4th quarter, or Terrell Suggs for the whole game, Dallas had their way running the ball, but again, coaching was the Cowboys kryptonite at the end of the day as a clock management blunder cost Dallas the game. Ravens win 31 – 29. Among the other winners Sunday, Detroit upsets Michael Vick and the Eagles in Philly, likewise for the Buffalo Bills, who knocked-off Arizona.

Surprise score in San Francisco as the 49ers looked like the team to beat for weeks, until the New ork Giants went into the Bay Sunday and demolished the Niners 26 – 3. The Houston Texans also looked invincible, that is, until the Green Bay Packers came to Texas and routed the Texans 42 – 24 to leave no unbeaten teams remaining in the NFL for 2012………
