RG3 easily got the best of fellow rookie QB Foles.
After Week 10, the perception around the NFL was that Andrew Luck had put on a surge to narrow the gap with Robert Griffin III for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. That tight race went back in favor of Griffin after his impressive outing against Philadelphia.
Luck, meanwhile, had a very rough game against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
RG3 completed 14-of-15 passes for 200 yards and four touchdowns. His QB passer rating of 158.3 is a perfect score on the passer rating scale. His QBR rating was 93.7.
By comparison, Nick Foles' QBR score was 7.2. In addition, Griffin was also the Redskins' leading rusher on the day; he picked up 84 yards on just 12 runs.
Griffin now has thrown 12 touchdown passes compared to just three interceptions. Those three interceptions have come from 277 pass attempts, which figures out to just 1.1 percent of his passes being picked off.
When Cam Newton won the OROY award in 2011, he threw 17 interceptions. This year, Luck has thrown 12 interceptions to go along with his 12 touchdowns.
Luck had a game to forget Sunday. The Patriots got to him for four turnovers in total, with three interceptions and one lost fumble.
Two of the interceptions were returned for touchdowns and helped to propel the Patriots to scoring 59 points. That thud noise you heard was the Colts team that came crashing back down to earth.
Other notable offensive rookie performances in Week 11 included Justin Blackmon finally stepping up with a big day. Blackmon came into the game against Houston with 26 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown for the entire season.
On Sunday, he caught seven passes for 236 yards and a score. He almost doubled his production for the year in a single game. Blackmon averaged a whopping 33.7 yards per catch.
The 2012 draft class of wide receivers shows Blackmon in the lead with 486 receiving yards. He is ranked No. 52 in the NFL.
Next up is Josh Gordon with 470 yards and T.Y. Hilton with 455 yards. Hilton is the only rookie that has three games with at least 100 yards in receptions (against Miami, Jacksonville and New England).
Doug Martin came up with another big game on Sunday, rushing 24 times for 138 yards and averaging 5.8 yards per rush.
On the season, Martin sits at exactly 1,000 yards. With respect to all NFL running backs, Martin ranks as the No. 3 running back with his 1,000 yards. He is 131 yards ahead of Alfred Morris.
