Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Flies Over RG3 (GIF)

RG3 1, DRC 0.

Robert Griffin III was making plenty of Eagles defenders miss in his first career game against Philadelphia. None of them missed as badly as defensive back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

In the final minutes of the first half on 3rd and 10, the Redskins rookie scrambled for seven yards and was dragged down by linebacker Mychal Kendricks. As RG3 was falling to the ground, Rodgers-Cromartie launched himself helmet-first towards him.

Fortunately for Griffin, and perhaps Rodgers-Cromartie's wallet, DRC went soaring over Griffin missing him completely.

"On the field it's just about having fun and making plays," he told CSN Washington. "On that one, it was kind of funny to see him dive at me and miss me."

Besides recording an incredibly efficient 93 completion percentage, the RG3 was also the game's leading rusher with 84 yards leading the Redskins to a 31-6 win.
