Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took the St. Louis Rams to task for play that he deemed "unprofessional" and "dirty."

"I don't want to tip-toe the lines of anything that's happened with bounties or anything like that, but they were definitely going after me," Griffin told reporters. "They made it a point, obviously, all week to hit me. Some of the shots were cheap of that nature."

Shortly after Sunday's 31-28 loss, Redskins players spoke about how they felt replacement referees had lost control of the game, and allowed hits after the whistle, in some cases.

"There was some extracurricular stuff going on after the plays," Griffin said. "They were doing a lot of dirty things. I still think they have an extremely good team, that doesn't take anything away from them, but the game was unprofessional. Who am I to talk? I've barely been a pro for very long, but from what I experienced against the Saints compared to that game, it was definitely unprofessional and it does need to be cleaned up."
