But, Kirk Cousins did look pretty good in the second half against the Bears over the weekend. . . . I have a feeling he may be collecting paychecks in the NFL for quote some time.
Kirk Cousins took over in the second half and provided a lift, throwing a trio of fourth-quarter touchdown passes as the Redskins rallied before losing to the Chicago Bears, 33-31 at Soldier Field.
Cousins, playing after Griffin while veteran quarterback Rex Grossman remained idle, nearly engineered a comeback victory with touchdown passes of five yards to tight end Niles Paul, 49 yards to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson and 20 yards to wideout Dezmon Briscoe. Cousins completed 18 of 23 passes for 264 yards.
The Redskins, thanks to Cousins, took a 31-30 lead before a 57-yard field goal by Chicago place kicker Robbie Gould in the final minute gave the Bears the triumph.
