    This was it, the big game as two first year coaches squared off for the Lombardi Trophy. Both the Redskins and Broncos won 3 games to get to the Meadowlands. Washington won the toss and elected to receive. On the first drive of the game the Redskins worked their way down the field to the redone, but the drive stalled and they had to settle for a field goal. On the Vikings stuck back quickly on two plays as Brock Osweiler first hit Jacob Tamme for a long pass then Ronnie Hillman broke a run outside for a TD. Washington's next drive would be brief as RG3 would throw an interception. The Broncos would hand the ball right back to the Redskins as a backwards pass would hit the turf with Ryan Kerrigan recovering. RG3 would lead the offense down the field again, but once again the Redskins failed to punch it into the end zone this time as a result of diving INT by Champ Bailey. After stopping the Broncos on the subsequent drive, the Redskins finally scored their first touchdown of the game when Griffin connected with Fred Davis. Brock Osweiler would then get hot connecting with many different receivers and throwing a short TD pass to give the Broncos a 14-10 lead.

    The Broncos defense started to use a lot of 2 man under with press coverage to slow down the Redskins passing attack. The WRs were having trouble getting off the ball and getting separation. Meanwhile the Broncos were hitting a point where they were becoming unstoppable constant hitting the Redskins with outs and comebacks. With a FG toward the end of the half, the Bronco found themselves up 17-10. Early in the 3rd quarter Jordan Todman would break a run outside for a TD putting Denver up 14. After a third INT by RG3, things were looking bleak for the Redskins as the Broncos had all momentum. Fortunately the Redskins were able to stop the bleeding only surrendering a FG off the INT. RG3 would get back to what he does best and led his offense on a much needed touchdown drive culminated by a QB sneak and Denver's lead was down to 27-17.

    By the time the 4th quarter started the Broncos were back up 34-17 after Osweiler found Hillman for a TD. The way the Broncos offense was going a comeback was looking very unlikely. Within a minute of the Broncos touchdown, the Redskins would score making it 34-24. Here comes the dynamic Broncos offense again imposing their will through the air but they were only able to come out with a field goal. RG3 would throw his 3rd TD pass to Santana Moss and now we're down to a 1 score game with just over 2 minutes left in the game. The Redskins defense desperately needed a stop at this point. After a 2nd down pass to Demarius Thomas would put the Broncos short of the 1st down by 3 yards, the Bronco decided to throw for the first down. DeAngelo Hall, who has arguably been the MVP for the playoffs made another huge INT and took it to the house for the TD to give the Redskins a 1 point lead. The Vikings would then be stopped for the 2nd drive and a row and all the Redskins needed to do at this point was run the clock out.

    After a couple stuffed runs, the Redskins knew they needed to complete a pass to put the game away. Santana Moss was able to separate from the defender and caught the pass with daylight ahead, in what may have been a poor decision, Moss decided to take it in for the touchdown to give Washington a 45-37 lead. Since there was still plenty of time left on the clock this one was not over. Broncos would work their way down the field and score a TD, all that was left was the 2 pt conversion. Osweiler was able to find his TE to convert the 2 pt and we were all tied up with 29 seconds left in the game. Ever the aggressive team, the Redskins were not going to play for overtime. Their first play of the drive was almost a disaster as RG3 would throw a bad pass off the hands of the Broncos defender. On 2nd down RG3 would find his WR up the middle to put the Redskins at midfield with 9 seconds left, enough time to complete a pass to get into FG position. In the pre-play scan of the defense, Griffin noticed that the Broncos were pressing the receivers, something they had been doing a lot during the game. He decided to audible Santana Moss for a streak. Moss would beat his man and RG3 would launch the ball for a perfect completion and Moss would run it into the end zone for the game winning TD!! The Redskins completed an improbable comeback for their first Super Bowl win since 1991. DeAngelo Hall won the MVP but it very well could have gone to Moss who had a hell of a game.
