--The last time the Redskins scored to come from behind and win in the last 10 seconds of a game was on October 3, 1999. Washingtons Bret Conway kicked a field goal with six second left to give the Redskins a 38-36 win over the Carolina Panthers.--Robert Griffin III has thrown just one interception in his first four NFL games. Only one other quarterback has thrown at least 100 passes in the first four games of his rookie season with one or fewer interceptions. The other was Warren Moon, who had professional experience in the CFL prior to coming to the NFL.--By passing for 323 yards, Griffin now has 1070 passing yards for the season. He becomes the second rookie to pass for over 1000 yards in the first four games of the year. Cam Newton was the first last year. (Note: rookie Ryan Tannehill--Rookie running back Alfred Morris rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown, the first 100-yard game of his career.--The rushing touchdown was Morris fourth of the year. Griffin also has four touchdown runs and they became the first pair of rookie NFL teammates ever to score four or more touchdowns in the first four games of the year.
