Latest Kirk Cousins Items
FedEx Field erupted, but the chants weren't of "RG3." Robert Griffin III was on the trainer's table getting his injured right knee looked at. He had taken the Washington Redskins so far and essentially had to be dragged off the field.
Robert Griffin III went down with a sprained knee as the Redskins trailed the Ravens by eight points on their final drive, putting Kirk Cousins under center to keep their playoff hopes alive. All he did was connect with Pierre Garcon on an 11-yard touchdown, then run a quarterback draw for the two-point conversion to force overtime. Rookie Richard Crawford returned a punt for 64 yards, and Kai Forbath kicked a 34-yard field goal that gave Washington the 31-28 win.
The pain pulsing through Robert Griffin III's sprained right knee late Sunday afternoon prevented the franchise quarterback from performing his magic when the Washington Redskins needed it most.
Losing back-to-back games — on the final play of regulation last week and in overtime on Sunday — is no way to begin your stretch run. It's also no way to bolster your argument for consideration as an elite quarterback.
This was one of those games Washington Redskins fans might be re-living for decades. When the first names that roll off your tongue after a victory are Kirk Cousins and Richard Crawford, you know you've seen something special.

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III left Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens in the final minute of the fourth quarter with a sprained right knee.
When Michael Vick suffered a concussion in the Philadelphia Eagles' game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, it put Nick Foles on the spot. He threw a touchdown and a pick, and the Eagles dropped to 3-6.
What perhaps stuck out most about Robert Griffin III's NFL debut was that he never looked like a rookie. Bright lights, big stadium in New Orleans and the Washington Redskins starting quarterback oozed the poise of a veteran.
