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.

Washington proved it can compete with any team
The Redskins defense played well considering a injured secondary
Our defense held Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to zero touchdown passes and intercepted him twice
The Redskins defensive effort caused and recovered a fumble
Three total turnovers for the Skins defense, plus the sacks and constant QB pressure
In game three we saw some great plays by some of our outstanding players; we saw some mistakes, and we can see now some things our team needs to work on to get better.
