Kirk Cousins helped his Washington Redskins get to 8 wins with his first Start in the N.F>L. filling in for an injured Robert Griffin III. The Redskins couldn’t have asked for more out of this rookie they drafted as a back-up in the 4th round of the 2012 N.F.L.. Cousins completely out played the Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden who has started all season for the  Browns. Cousins completed 26 of the 37 passes he threw for 329 yards and 2 touchdowns. All this after throwing an interception when a pass was deflected by a Browns defender and returned into Redskins territory that led to a Cleveland Touchdown.

Cousins never lost his composure and returned to the game to find the form of a seasoned veteran to lead his Redskins to a victory. Cousins faced some pressure and was able to roll out of the pocket to find an open receiver down field to keep the Redskins hopes of their 8th win moving in a positive direction. As RGIII watched from the sideline cheering his team on Cousins performed almost without blemish.  A lot of people thought the Redskins were crazy when they drafted Cousins along with RGIII. Today those skeptics could see why the Redskins made the choice to take Cousins.

The Redskins completely outplayed the Browns in the second half of the game. The Cleveland defense did what they could to try and limit the damage that Cousins was delivery to the Browns chances of a win. They weren’t able to complete the task of stopping Cousins and the Washington Redskins completely out played the Browns to show the world they belong at the top of the NFL East. The Redskins have 2 quarterbacks who are capable of helping the team win. Just knowing that, the Washington Fans now have something great to celebrate.  The Redskins could be officially back as a force to deal with in the N.F.L.. The team is playing some solid football…..
