LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- 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.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Jon Nwannunu and Keith Hornsby scored 22 points each as North Carolina-Asheville rolled over Bluefield 95-66 Sunday in nonconference play.
