Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins simply couldn’t do it all.
It didn’t help the Redskins had to travel to take on the high-flying Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football — a game that certainly seemed to favor the latter after the first five minutes or so — eventually resulting in a 34-24 prime-time loss.
Outside of Jordan Reed, Cousins’ receiving corps didn’t offer much help against an impressive Eagles secondary, and Philly’s pass rush made left hell for Cousins, sacking him three times and delivering eight quarterback hits.
The Redskins struggled to get the running game going too, which didn’t help matters either.
In this crucial NFC East showdown, at least the Redskins can feel pretty good they’re not the Giants.
