Washington Redskins vs. Atlanta Falcons: Takeaways from Washington's 26-27 Loss

The Washington Redskins will know they handed the game to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. They only lost by a point, 27-26, but it should never have been that close.

The focus was firmly on Kirk Cousins, as he stepped in for Robert Griffin III. The 2012 fourth-round pick responded brilliantly, reviving a sluggish offense.

Sadly, seven turnovers and some dubious coaching decisions undermined Cousins' best efforts. Those issues are the main takeaways for Washington after they slipped to 3-11.
