That early lead was the product of a 69-yard touchdown connection between quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Griffin III would finish the day 27-of-41 for a season-high 336 yards and his first rushing touchdown since Week 17 of the 2012 season, but he also had two costly turnovers in the red zone that stunted two separate drives.
