RG3: God is on our side

Robert Griffin III keeps winning, which for right now is keeping the Cowboys in the playoff race.

How are the Washington Redskins are pulling of one miraculous win after another — a run that has one of the worst teams in the NFL last season on the cusp of a playoff spot?

Robert Griffin III knows how ... and he says the team needs to give thanks to a higher power.

"God's on our side," Griffin said Tuesday, according to USA Today. 

The star rookie quarterback led the Redskins to a 17-16 win Monday night against the New York Giants — Washington's third straight victory. 

Divine intervention? How about the fumble/touchdown that Griffin was part of that gave the Redskins their first lead — when RG3 was hit from behind and fumbled, only for it to end up in the hands of receiver Josh Morgan, who ran it in for a score?

The win gave the Redskins a 6-6 record, one game out of an NFC wild-card spot, but also one game behind the 7-6, first-place, Super Bowl champion Giants in the NFC East.

The Redkins host the 9-3 Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
