NEW ORLEANS -- Robert Griffin III was named Offensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday night after a marvelous season in which he completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns, leading the Redskins into the playoffs with their first NFC East title since 1999.
"It's truly a blessing to be up here and to be able to stand first and foremost," Griffin said when he received the award. "All the competition to win this award was good and it seems like the league is in good hand with all these quarterbacks."
Also deserving of the ROY award? Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who got a shoutout from Griffin during his remarks following his reception of the award.
Griffin's win was suprisingly big: he received 29 votes for the award. Luck got 11 votes while Wilson got 10.
