Cousins wakes up, ties game


So much for that one-for-six start.

On his seventh throw of Sunday’s game at Cleveland, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins found receiver Leonard Hankerson on a 54-yard catch-and-tumble-and-get-up-and-score.

The game is now knotted at seven, as Cousins tries to overcome a sluggish launch to the first start of his career.

With the Giants losing by 14, the Redskins could pull into a tie for first place in the NFC East with a win.

    Cousins did tie it up with that bomb TD off a bootleg, but he is still playing like a rookie making his first start.

    What really grabs my attention though is the play of Brandon Weeden. He’s been the starter all year in Cleveland hasn’t he? He hasn’t played like it. That guy has looked terrible so far.

    Was hoping the Skins would snag him in the 2nd or 3rd if they didn’t get Griffin, now I’m glad they at least got Cousins in the 4th. Cousins showing so far he is the much more worthwhile QB prospect.

    Could, but won’t.

    They will parlay this into a matt schaub deal. Some sucker (Bills) will pay a 2nd rounder for this guy based off a few weeks.

    well played skins

    Im a Browns fan an i think Weeden is fragile he is scared to make a play i dont think he is the future he stinks. If i was GM id take a close look at this Cousins kid an might make a trade in the offseason.

    14-10 at the half. Browns are lucky Griffin isn’t playing. Wouldn’t be close.
