Redskins Win Fourth Straight, Lose RGIII Against Reeling Ravens

Matthew BrownCorrespondent IDecember 9, 2012

The Redskins did the unthinkable. Not only did they win their fourth-straight game, they did it without the help of Robert Griffin III in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. Rookie Kirk Cousins picked up where Griffin left off, tossing a touchdown, and running for the two-point conversion to push the game into overtime.

A monumental stand by the Redskins defense, and a superb 64-yard punt return from rookie Richard Crawford put Washington field goal range.

Mr. Perfect, Kai Forbath, nails a 34-yard kick for the win! A huge win for the Redskins, but at what cost? How long will Griffin be out, assuming he is able to return at all?

Washington moves to 7-6, and within reach of the NFC East lead, while the Ravens fall to 9-4 and fail to secure their playoff spot this week.

Final Score (OT): Redskins 31, Ravens 28
