LAN­DOVER, MD. — RG3 and the Washington Red­skins are NFC East cham­pi­ons.

Robert Grif­fin III ran for a touch­down, and fel­low rookie Al­fred Mor­ris rushed for 200 yards and three scores Sun­day night as the Red­skins won their first di­vi­sion ti­tle in 13 years by beat­ing the Dal­las Cow­boys 28-18.

The Red­skins are 10-6 and will host the Seat­tle Seahawks next Sun­day, hav­ing won seven straight since their bye week. Washington is the first NFL team to rally from 3-6 to make the post­sea­son since the Jack­sonville Jaguars in 1996.

The Red­skins would have been out of the post­sea­son with a loss. In­stead, the Cow­boys will miss the play­offs for the third straight year. Dal­las fin­ished 8-8, stum­bling in a door-die end-of-reg­u­lar-sea­son game for the third time in five years.
