Robert Griffin III impressed in his NFL debut Thursday night against the Bills. But who else stood out from the Redskins preseason opener?

Redskins Vs. Bills: Washington Wins First Preseason Game, 7-6

A first-quarter touchdown pass by Robert Griffin III to Pierre Garcon was all the Washington Redskins needed to defeat the Buffalo Bills, 7-6 in preseason NFL action at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. Thursday evening.

The game was a typical affair for the first game of preseason, as the offenses struggled and both teams committed a combined 23 penalties for 190 yards.

Griffin III, the rookie QB from Baylor, played three series, the last of which ended in the 20-yard scoring screen play by Garcon. His understudies fared somewhat less well, as Rex Grossman completed just 2 of 10 passes for 22 yards. Rookie third-stringer Kurt Cousins saw the most time, but completed just 9 of his 22 passes, the first of which was intercepted.

Alfred Morris was Washington's leading rusher, with 54 yards on 15 carries. Evan Royster and Roy Helu combined for just 38 yards in 11 carries.

On the receiving end, Garcon led all Redskins with 58 yards on three catches in addition to the touchdown. He was followed by Josh Morgan (4 catches, 49 yards), and Aldrick Robinson (2 catches, 28 yards).

Redskins Vs. Bills Score Update: Washington Leads 7-3; Robert Griffin Impressive

Robert Griffin III's debut was very solid, and the Washington Redskins defense looks good as well. Unfortunately, the Redskins did have one bad turnover -- a fumble by Evan Royster -- allowing the Buffalo Bills to pick up an easy field goal. They've looked good so far, even with that turnover, and the Redskins lead 7-3 at the end of the first quarter.

Griffin played three series and was 4-6 passing for 70 yards and a touchdown. One of his incompletions came on a pass right into the hands of Pierre Garcon on a third down, but Garcon was unable to keep his feet inbounds. The touchdown was on his last throw of his night, a short pass that Garcon took 20 yards into the end zone.

Rex Grossman is now in at quarterback for the Redskins and should play through the second quarter.

Redskins Vs. Bills: Redskins Issue First Preseason Depth Chart

With their first preseason game coming up on Thursday evening, the Redskins released their first depth chart of the preseason Monday.

There are few surprises on the list, though Tim Hightower's listing as the first running back on the depth chart is interesting, considering that the running back was limited in the early part of training camp. It should also be noted that Jammal Brown and Korey Lichtensteiger are listed first at their spots despite the fact that both are currently sidelined due to injuries.
