Robert Griffin III
Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 31-28 win over Baltimore.
Kirk Cousins — Came in under dire circumstances and responded beautifully, going 2-2 for 26 and a game-tying TD plus two-pointer. Nice draft pick, Big Shanny!
Li’l Shanny — 31 more points with a good balance of run and pass, and he gets credit for closing it out with Cousins. Bonus stat: They gained 186 yards in the first quarter, more than any NFL team in any game this season (via CBS).
Richard Crawford — Replaced Brandon Banks on punt returns and averaged 33 per, including a 64-yarder in OT that was the de facto game-winner. This should be a Wally Pipp-type situation.
Pierre Garcon – 87 yards and a TD. The guy is electric, though he did drop what would’ve been a big first down.
Rob Jackson – Beat Michael Oher for a strip and recovery when they really needed it.
Kai Forbath — Good from 48, good from 49 and good in overtime. Needs to work on those kickoffs, though.
