Robert Griffin III got hurt on a scramble with 1:42 left and his team down 28-20 to the Ravens. After coming out for a play, RG3 came back onto the field, tried to play, hobbled around, and quickly returned to the sidelines.
But the Redskins weren’t dead yet. Back-up rookie QB Kirk Cousins relieved Griffin, drove the team down the field, threw a TD pass and converted a two-point play to send the game to OT with 29 seconds left.
In overtime, Washington got a big punt return, then kicked a field goal to win 31-28. What. A. Game.
Here’s the injury. Gross leg whip (via @BuzzFeedSports):
