Robert Griffin III is playing like Cam Newton did last year, only better. He has been able to bring his team back into relevance this season and provided New York with quite a scare last week.
Griffin is currently leading the league in completion percentage at 70.4 percent. A rookie leading the league in this category is something you don't often see. Along with that, his other passing numbers have been good, with seven touchdowns and only three interceptions. His passer rating is one of the best in the league at 101.8
What Griffin has really excelled at is running. In just seven games, he has ran for 468 yards and six touchdowns. His 7.6 yards per carry is ridiculous. That's really the best word to describe it.
Griffin will be playing another tough opponent this week in the Pittsburgh Steelers. He will need to show off both his running and passing skills this week to prove he can play with the best of the best in the NFL. If he can play at his best, the Redskins have a chance to pull the upset.
