In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.
"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of
Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.
Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
Jackson scored on a 69-yard touchdown pass from Robert Griffin III during the first quarter. It was Jackson’s eighth reception of 50 or more yards this season which led the NFL. The touchdown was the lone highlight for Jackson, who finished the game with two receptions for 86 yards on three targets.
Jackson came down with a 51-yard reception in the first quarter and a 55-yard grab in the third quarter. Both catches came while being covered by Bradley Fletcher. He was targeted six times and finished with four catches for 126 yards. Jackson surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth time in his career. He has 54 catches for 1,083 and five touchdowns this season.
Washington will face Dallas in Week 17.
Jackson, who made his return from a shin injury Sunday, had just three receptions for 15 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He led the team in targets, one ahead of Garcon, who had just four catches of his own for 36 yards. That coming off a nine-catch, 95-yard showing last week.
Both players have shown the ability to be productive, but the inconsistent quarterback play has hurt them this season. Whether Griffin or Colt McCoy gets the starting nod in Week 16, neither player should be viewed as more than a low-end starting option against the Eagles, though both players had 100-plus yards and a touchdown in a prior meeting.
Jackson, who was targeted eight times, finished with three catches for 15 yards. In two losses against the Giants this season, he totaled four catches for 24 yards.
The Redskins are back in action Week 16 against the Eagles.
