Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris Named Finalists For Three Weekly Fan Awards
On the heels of the Washington Redskins’ 38-31 Thanksgiving victory at Dallas, quarterback Robert Griffin III is a finalist for several weekly league awards.
Griffin, who completed 20 of 28 passes for 311 yards and four touchdowns in the victory, is a finalist for the FedEx Air Player of the Week – an award given to the quarterback who performs the best each week.
He was also nominated for the GMC “Never Say Never” Moment of the Week award, which honors determination and perseverance, for his performance in his return to his home state of Texas.
And, Griffin and running back Alfred Morris are each finalists for the Pepsi Max Rookie of the Week award, with Griffin seeking his fifth victory this season. Morris, who ran for 113 yards on 24 carries, won the award after Week 7.
All winners are determined through fan voting on NFL.com and will be announced by the league on Friday.
