Robert Griffin III threw for 200 yards during the Washington Redskins' 31-6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. By itself, that number is not that impressive. What is impressive is that of the 15 passes he threw, 14 were caught. Four were for touchdowns.  This earned him a quarterback rating of 158.3 -- the highest number that can be earned.

Efficiency, thy name is RGIII. One of the most impressive parts of his day came on a 49-yard pass to Aldrick Robinson in the second quarter.

Later, he and Santana Moss connected for a 61-yard touchdown. Griffin also had 84 rushing yards, ensuring his mark was made on every part of the Redskins' offense.
