Andrew Luck, RGIII Impressive In First Matchup

With Week 3 serving as the biggest week of preseason, it’s only right that it’s biggest matchup feature two of the league’s newest sensations.  Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were equally impressive today, as the Washington Redskins defeated the Indianapolis Colts 30-17.  Luck gathered momentum for himself by completing a series of short quick passes.  He finished the contest 14/23 for 151 yards and a 32 yard TD pass to fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton.  RGIII showed glimpses of trademark elusiveness out of the gate, scrambling to his right for a new set of downs on the game’s first drive.  RGIII would finish the game 11/17 for 74 yards and a 4 yard TD toss to Santana Moss.  If I was forced to choose one over the other after what we saw earlier, I’d have to go with Luck.  He looks like a veteran out on the field with the way he commands the offense and responds to adversity.  The gap between the two isn’t wide at all and I fully expect RGIII to have his moments to shine this season as well.
