The Washington Redskins vaulted up into the No. 4 seed in the NFC with a gritty road victory in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns, winning by a score of 38-21.

The Redskins were without Robert Griffin III, who didn't even suit up for this game due to a sprained LCL suffered in Week 14. 

In his place, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins had a brilliant game, shaking off an early interception to throw for 329 yards with two touchdown passes—both of which were caught by Leonard Hankerson.

Alfred Morris added two more on the ground, and Evan Royster put another one in for good measure.

Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden struggled mightily in this game, throwing two interceptions and one touchdown.

Fellow rookie Trent Richardson only carried the ball 11 times for 28 yards, but he did rush for two touchdowns, bringing his seasonal total up to 10 and breaking Jim Brown's franchise record for most rushing touchdowns by a rookie.

The Redskins improved to 8-6 on the season and will travel to face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16, while the Browns fell to 5-9 and will travel to face the Denver Broncos next Sunday.
