Redskins' Griffin highlights NFC weekly winners

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith and Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey were recognized as the NFC's top Week 11 performers.

Griffin completed 14-of-15 passes for 200 yards and four touchdowns while also leading the team with 84 yards on the ground in a 31-6 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles to earn his second offensive award in his rookie season. With his 61-yard touchdown strike to Santana Moss in the contest, Griffin became the first player in NFL history with at least three 60-yard TD passes and a 60-yard touchdown run in a season.

Smith took home the defensive honor with a career-high 5 1/2 sacks, seven tackles and two forced fumbles in the 49ers' 32-7 victory over the Chicago Bears on Monday night.

Bailey connected on all three field-goal attempts, including the game-tying 32-yard kick late in the fourth quarter and the decisive 38-yarder in overtime, in a 23-20 win over the Cleveland Browns to receive the special teams award. His other field goal came from 44 yards out.
