Thanksgiving Day, 2012 was a huge turning point for then-rookie quarterback Robert Griffin, III - RGIII - and Washington. They were three and six and their head coach, Mike Shanahan, had already said the season was essentially over. Then Washington did something no one expected when they took on the Cowboys in Dallas. They won.

“You go on Thanksgiving and you obliterate the Cowboys, which is America's team, and you go out and you do it in a way that no one’s ever seen it done before,” RGIII told In the Moment’s David Greene. “And that game helped us do it every week after that on the way to the postseason.”

Griffin is proud that he spent eight years in the NFL, even after a career-altering injury. He went on to play in Baltimore, and helped serve as a mentor to quarterback Lamar Jackson. He now has a career as a broadcaster for ESPN.
