The legend of Robert Griffin III continues to grow. The Washington Redskins rookie quarterback threw for four touchdown passes for the second straight week in a 38-31 victory over Dallas. Griffin threw for 311 yards and TDs to four different receivers. RGIII has thrown eight touchdowns with one interception in the past two games. He's the first rookie in NFL history to do that.
In other Thanksgiving NFL games:
Shayne Graham's 32-yard field goal with 2:21 left in overtime lifted Houston to a 34-31 win over Detroit.
The Thanksgiving football nightcap produced a lot of heartburn for New York Jets fans. The New England Patriots scored three touchdowns in a 52-second span. They went on to blast the Jets by a final of 49-19.
