Kirk Cousins Has Brain Fart, Kneels Ball Instead of Spiking It and Ends Half

Kirk Cousins just had the ultimate brain fart.

With six seconds left on the clock and his team inside the Philadelphia Eagles' 10-yard line Saturday night, Cousins took a knee instead instead of spiking the ball. That ended the half.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was as clueless as everyone watching, as Conor Orr of NFL.com notes:

We don’t know, either, Coach.

Mark Schlereth was clear about what he thought, though:

With the division on the line, Washington had a chance to add to its 16-10 halftime lead. It's possible this blunder could come back to bite the Skins in the end.
