Grading Kirk Cousins' First Start for Washington Redskins
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports
Kirk Cousins earned his initial NFL start against the Browns on Sunday.

Kirk Cousins got his first NFL start in Week 15 and he graded out quite well.

Now, it was a rocky start as the rookie signal-caller began 1-of-6 with an interception and getting sacked on his first four possessions.

Thereafter, however, Cousins continued to improve and the Washington Redskins ultimately pulled out another victory. Winners of five consecutive games, the Redskins sit atop the NFC East at 8-6 and control their own destiny.

The former Michigan State Spartan has become a great steal of the 2012 NFL draft, so expect the Redskins to keep rolling this season.

Ahead, we break down Cousins' performance on the road against the Cleveland Browns.
