Robert Griffin III has had a superb season and continued to play well on Monday night against the New York Giants, accounting for 235 total yards in leading the Washington Redskins to a gutsy 17-16 win.
But football is the epitome of a team sport and there were many other players donning burgundy and gold that had an immense impact on the victory. As good as RGIII was, he wasn't great enough to win the game by himself. He had plenty of help.
The Redskins are more than their quarterback and that balance was on full display against New York. Washington probably needs to win each of their next four games to make the playoffs, so the rest of the team will have to continue to step up and support RGIII. If that happens, the Redskins will be a team that no one in the NFC wants to face come playoff time.
