Colts Vs. Redskins Score Update: Washington Defeats Indianapolis 30-17

The preseason battle of rookie quarterbacks was won by Washington's Robert Griffin III, as his Redskins bested Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 30-17 on Saturday night at FedEx Field. Both rookie signal callers played well for their team, and the Washington ground game and defensive front were the difference in the contest.

Griffin finished the game 11 of 17 passing for 74 yards and a touchdown. Luck, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, completed 14 of 23 throws for 151 yards and a touchdown.

Running back Alfred Morris, battling to make the Redskins roster, was impressive running the ball. He gained 107 yards on 14 carries with a two-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

It should be noted that Washington backup quarterback Rex Grossman was eight for eight in second half duty, throwing for 127 yards and two touchdowns. This was after getting booed upon his entry to the game.
