KIRK COUSINS DID NOT hesitate. With victory hinging on his decision, he saw the slightest opening to throw Pierre Garcon the football, and he let loose. He let it all fly - the pass and the past - every mistake, every disappointment, every criticism unleashed in this moment. His moment.
LANDOVER, Md. Kirk Cousins still has thrown for more interceptions than touchdown passes in the NFL. And it's going to take some work to get his 4-9 record as a starter above the .500 mark.
By just about any statistical measure, Washington's Kirk Cousins and Philadelphia's Sam Bradford have been among the worst quarterbacks in the NFL this season.
ASHBURN ALFRED MORRIS is replaceable - until it becomes painfully obvious he isn't. You can waste time examining what he can't do - until you're forced to recognize what he can do: produce. Just like his beloved 1991 Mazda 626 sedan, Morris is a reliable, understated vehicle in a parking lot of luxury cars.
ASHBURN It's a common lament heard around the Washington Redskins these days: The team is simply not coming up with many big plays. The forced turnover or drive-ending sack. The long touchdown pass. In sum, the momentum-swingers that can mask a club's deficiencies and make a difference in the outcome of an NFL game.
ASHBURN Redskins rookie linebacker Martrell Spaight is heading to the season-ending injured reserve list. The move allows the Redskins to reinstate cornerback Chris Culliver to the active roster ahead of Thursday's game against the Giants. Spaight, a fifth-round draft pick out of Arkansas, sustained a concussion in Washington's season-opening loss against the Miami Dolphins.
ASHBURN By adding rookie Matt Jones to dependable veteran Alfred Morris, the Washington Redskins have created an unusual two-back rushing attack. How unusual? With Jones running for 123 yards in Week 2, after Morris gained 121 yards in Week 1, the Redskins are the first team since the 2006 San Diego Chargers to have two backs each gain at least 100 yards in a season's first two games.
LANDOVER, Md. Forget everything you thought you knew about the importance of the passing game in today's NFL. Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden and new general manager Scot McCloughan want to win by moving the football on the ground. And thanks to rookie running back Matt Jones and an offensive line led by left tackle Trent Williams, the Redskins did just that Sunday.
ASHBURN Washington receiver DeSean Jackson could miss 3-4 weeks with a strained left hamstring, coach Jay Gruden said on Monday. "Possibly, it could be shorter, but you just never know with hamstrings," Gruden said. Jackson was injured on the first play of the Redskins' second possession in a 17-10 defeat against Miami on Sunday.
LANDOVER, Md. A tight game in which neither offense could take control was decided on a sensational play by Miami's special teams. Jarvis Landry returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown with 10:22 left to give the Dolphins their first lead, and Miami held on to beat the Washington Redskins 17-10 Sunday.
