A preseason battle showcasing the top two quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft has seen little offense in the first quarter, with the Indianapolis Colts and host Washington Redskins tied 0-0 after 15 minutes of play.
Robert Griffin III has made a few nice throws, and is four for seven in the quarter, for just 25 yards. The Redskins QB was also hit hard from the blind-side early in the game, the first time this preseason the team's franchise quarterback was roughed up.
Fellow rookie QB Andrew Luck was five of eight for 38 yards in the first quarter for the Colts.
The Redskins defense took advantage of a young Colts offensive line, with Ryan Kerrigan, London Fletcher and Stephen Bowen all getting to Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck.
