Redskins to Start Colt McCoy - Bench RG3

The Washington Redskins have benched QB Robert Griffin III in favor of Colt McCoy.  Griffin completed 52 of his 79 (65.8%) pass attempts over the last 3 games, but gained just 564 yards, threw for 2 TDs and 3 INTs.  Most importantly, the Redskins lost to the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the San Francisco 49ers.

McCoy led the Redskins to consecutive wins against the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.  He came in for Kirk Cousins during the Titans game, completed 11 of his 12 attempts and led a 4th quarter drive that set up a game winning field goal.  He then went on to complete 25 of his 30 attempts against the Cowboys and gained 299 yards through the air, rushed for a TD and threw an INT.

DeSean Jackson led the team in yards targets when McCoy started against the Cowboys, and was tied with Jordan Reed for targets (7).  Reed led the team with 7 receptions.  Pierre Garcon caught all 4 of his targets but gained just 47 yards.  He has reached 100 yards receiving just once this season.

Alfred Morris has been pretty consistent this season, regardless of QB, and has been getting better each week as the season progresses.
