Yesterday (as you already know) the New England Patriots beat the Washington Redskins 27 to 10. On the other hand an asteroid didn’t wipe out the New England coast, California didn’t slide into the ocean, Yellowstone Park didn’t disappear under megatons of volcanic pyroclastic debris, and Europe wasn’t invaded by masses of un-dead zombies.

Bottom line? The Redskins will be on the warpath, the Patriots will be lucky to get out of the stadium with their scalps intact.
No, you weren’t dreaming – Kirk Cousins lead our Washington Redskins back from a 24 point deficit by rushing for one touchdown and passing for three touchdowns. It was in fact the biggest comeback victory in the entire Redskins history. The boo’s our team heard in the 1st half turned into cheers as the defense rose to the occasion in the 2nd half AND held the Tampa Bucs to just 6 points & 2 field goals so Kirk could throw the winning TD with just 24 seconds left on the clock. The final score was a gift from the entire Redskins team to the faithful: Skins 31, Bucs 30.
With 2 wins and 4 loses the Washington Redskins can’t afford to go backwards. I hesitate to say “must win” but it’s the only honest option. A win, and going 3 and 4 into a bye week is what the team needs now. Washington would still be in reach of the division title, only behind a game or so behind. During the bye week, either the NY Giants or Philadelphia Eagles can, and will most likely stumble. After the bye week the Redskins have to play the New England Patriots, but our chances will be good since we’ll get some of our injured starters back.
Each and every year we go through a rebirth process, and some years it’s more painful than others. We’re not where we should be after six games, so it’s back to the drawing board. At least we don’t have a “Quarterback Issue” anymore; coaches Gruden chose Kirk Cousins to start this season because he believes Kirk gives us the best change to win. We do however have some other stability issues to iron out before the Redskins start running on all twelve cylinders.
