Kirk Cousins struggles in Washington's ugly loss to Eagles

Kirk Cousins says God told him not to sign long-term deal with Redskins

Kirk Cousins says God told him not to sign long-term deal with Redskins

And it's about damn time.

Someone who might provide the Eagles some additional insight on the Redskins is quarterback Nate Sudfeld, who was among Washington's final cuts before being signed to the Eagles' practice squad.

Best play: During a unusual first half in which Ryan Grant led the Redskins in receiving yards, Chris Thompson - not Terrelle Pryor Sr. or Jordan Reed - made Washington's most jaw-dropping play.

This week, I'm writing these from the Poconos.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery didn't make a huge impact in his first game as an Eagles, though he did haul in a key third-down catch in the fourth quarter. And that's what I was looking for, to play with a good quarterback.

But that was the preseason.

The all-time history between the two teams is solidly in the Redskins' favor. He was greatly missed past year in the two games against Washington.

In the offseason, the Eagles offense improved. Still, he's played well at home, especially against the Birds.

Already questioning whether or not Washington truly appreciates him, Cousins and his agent, Mike McCarthy, were not happy with the fact that the Redskins did not modify their second offer. The Eagles won on the road.

The Philadelphia Eagles will play the Washington Redskins in one of the NFL Opening games on Sunday, start time at 1:00 PM ET, at FedExField, Maryland.

Drive summary: The Redskins got on the board on a defensive touchdown.

Wentz was the king of the short pass a year ago and for the Eagles to be considered a contender he needs to be able to stretch the field. "And you look across and you see who is covering him. I only go by what they call". Cousins has passed for 1,579 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions in five games against Philadelphia. And nothing we've seen in the preseason suggests that will be the case. And why Washington's offensive line needs to knock off the rust quickly.

Speaking of the Eagles quarterback...

Zach Ertz caught eight passes for 93 yards and Nelson Agholor snagged six for 86 and a touchdown.

"At the end of those games we were right there", Wentz said. Cousins completed only 2 of 8 passes and finished the quarter as the Redskins' leading rusher. with 10 yards. At FedEx Field, he only threw the ball 22 times (11 completions).

"I think my focus is on this team". He picked the topic; he set the line. Everyone on the team is invited to join the group and many times, other players who are not in the usual core Bible study group will join them. Lining in the slot because of those additions, Agholor feels he can play wherever and isn't focused on redemption after just 59 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns in his first 28 National Football League games. Unfortunately for them, Washington is not the kind of team you want to face when you're experimenting with your secondary, as Cousins can pick and choose between an array of talented receiving options.

If their play in the preseason was any indication, I think they'll hit the over.

"When I heard about it, my mom told me yesterday, I kind of got a little nervous, but then it's one of those things I can't let it bother me too much", Thompson said.
