RG3 was happy to see action in return to FedExField

There's no question that the Baltimore Ravens' victory over the Washington Football Team on Sunday meant a little extra to Robert Griffin III.

Griffin, who spent the first four years of his career in Washington after the franchise famously selected him No. 2 overall, has been the primary backup to Ravens passer Lamar Jackson the past two seasons.

With the Ravens in complete control of the contest in the fourth quarter, Griffin was inserted for mop-up duty. The 10 offensive snaps Griffin played were the first he's taken at FedExField since 2014, marking the first time he's played in Washington's home stadium since his divorce with the team that drafted him.

Following Baltimore's 31-17 victory, Griffin took to Twitter to thank Jackson and the Ravens for giving him the chance to play at his old home against his former club.

"Great team win!!! Thankful to be blessed with the opportunity to help close it out. Thanks @Lj_era8," Griffin tweeted.

Griffin's individual return to Washington did not go as he would've liked, as his lone pass attempt was intercepted by cornerback Kendall Fuller.

However, it was Griffin and his new team that had the last laugh, as Baltimore dominated Washington in all three phases; the Ravens' 14-point victory doesn't come close to telling how lopsided this contest truly was.
