Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, who has taken the football world by storm this year with his amazing statistics and exciting style of play, is now the owner of the top-selling NFL jersey, according to the league itself.
Apparently, it was a strong weekend of sales, probably buoyed by RG3's killer performance on Thanksgiving Day in Dallas, that propelled Griffin to numero uno.
Giants QB Eli Manning is fourth in the NFL, while Tom Brady of the New England Patriots rounds out the top five. Tim Tebow, who was number one in jersey sales last year, has fallen to eighth. That move to the Big Apple really hasn't worked out well for anyone -- apart from Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, I suppose. Still, considering how little he plays, it is remarkable Tebow is in the top 10 at all.
The biggest drop in jersey sales the last two months isn't Tebow, though, it is Dallas-based golden boy Tony Romo, QB of the Dallas Cowboys and the latest veteran signal-caller to be shown up in his own buidling by RG3.
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck, who was taken first overall, just ahead of Griffin at second, in the 2012 NFL Draft, is 6th in NFL jersey sales.
