RG3 stood alone this week. (US Presswire)

The comparisons are inevitable. Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2012, and No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III will be scrutinized throughout the season, and probably throughout their careers, unless one of them does his best Ryan Leaf impersonation. And RG3 always will be looked at through a prism of Luck. That's why we're compiling the most important stats for every game they play this year, and some of the most unimportant aspects of those contests as well. This way it'll be easier to tell who is his team's savior and who should be forced to join JaMarcus Russell in the corner away from the rest of civilization.

Week 4: Luck's Colts were on their bye week, while Griffin's Redskins got a last-minute field goal from Billy Cundiff to knock off the Buccaneers, 24-22.

Passing stats

Griffin: 26 of 35, 323 yards, zero touchdowns, zero interceptions

Rushing stats

Griffin: Seven carries, 43 yards, one touchdown

Longest play from scrimmage

Griffin: This was the coolest play of the day. On the final play of the third quarter, Griffin took the shotgun snap, pitched to Brandon Banks, who ran left and threw a lateral back to Griffin -- who then completed a 30-yard pass to Niles Paul.

Best play

Griffin: With communications with his coaching staff knocked out for the final drive of the game, the Redskins started at the Buccaneers 20-yard line with 1:42 to play, needing a field goal to win the game. His first pass, a 15-yarder to Santana Moss across the middle, got the series going and proved to be perhaps the most important reception of the game. It wasn’t a standout pass, but it provided plenty of momentum for the drive.

Worst play

Griffin: Through four games in his career, Griffin already has taken plenty of punishment. Down 3-0 at the end of the first quarter, Griffin took it upon himself to inflict some more … on himself. Streaking for the goal line, he took a massive hit from Tampa Bay safeties Ahmad Black and Mark Barron and fumbled into the end zone. Luckily for the Redskins, Pierre Garcon recovered for the touchdown, but still, that could have been ugly.

WWE move of the week

In the second half, this is what Barron did to Griffin.

The thing Barron didn’t realize at the time: Griffin jobs for no man!

Best pregame line

Luck: Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes says his predecessor, Andrew Luck, already leading the Colts to last-minute victories, needed nine hours of sleep a night when he was in college. … Coach David Shaw said: “If you ever called Andrew and woke him up, you’d understand. He sleeps like a rock, eats like a horse, sweats like a horse, drinks a lot of water, has to go to the bathroom every five minutes. When it’s time to sleep he is out.” -- Tom Fitzgerald, San Francisco Chronicle

Griffin: Robert Griffin III would be furious if the Washington Redskins sat him like the Washington Nationals sat their young superhero, Stephen Strasburg. Griffin playing gives the Redskins a better chance to win, and a rookie’s best way to learn is to play. It ought to happen anyway. -- Tom Krasovic, UT San Diego

Best postgame line

For Griffin, the victory was a validation of sorts. He had answered every other question about his abilities in the season’s first three games: Was he tough enough? Was he accurate enough? Could he make quick decisions with the ball? Now, he had answered the ultimate question for an NFL quarterback: Was he a winner? And he answered, decisively and definitively, in the affirmative. -- Dave Sheinin, Washington Post

Team savior scale (1-5)

Luck: Overall, Luck is a 73 percent team savior.

Griffin: It’d be tough to give Griffin anything other than a 5 here. So, he gets a 5 (last week was a 2; overall this season, he’s a 70 percent team savior).
