With Robert Griffin III out with a sprained knee, the Washington Redskins called on rookie fourth-rounder Kirk Cousins to fill in for the injured quarterback. After finishing off the come-from-behind victory against the Baltimore Ravens last week, Cousins would get his first NFL start with his team riding a four-game winning streak with a postseason berth in mind.
Against the Cleveland Browns, Cousins and Co. did not disappoint, and they owe it to a spirited effort on defense as well as key contributions on offense.
No victory is perfect, and the Redskins' 38-21 win over the Browns is no exception. Here are the winners and losers from Washington's fifth consecutive win.
