Need to Know: Redskins’ Cousins, Jones put up impressive numbers

Nov 16, 2015, 5:36 AM EDT


Here is what you need to know on this Monday, November 16, six days before the Washington Redskins play the Carolina Panthers.

Notes and numbers on Redskins 47, Saints 14

—Kirk Cousins completed 20 of 25 passes for 324 yards with four touchdowns and no interception. That calculates to a passer rating of 158.3, the maximum on the NFL’s scale. He is the first Redskins quarterback to post a perfect passer rating in a game with a minimum of 20 attempts and the first QB to do so in the NFL this season.

—Cousins became the first Redskins quarterback ever to complete 80 percent of his passes and throw for 300 yards with four touchdowns passing and no interceptions. He’s only the 13th quarterback in NFL history to post these numbers. (h/t Elias via John Keim of ESPN)

—Matt Jones had 131 yards receiving, the most by a Redskins running back in a game since 1962 (Dick James, 140). His 78-yard receiving touchdown was the longest by a Redskins running back since Larry Brown went 89 yards for a touchdown against the Jets in 1972.

—The Redskins gained 514 yards, the most they have gained in a game since a 1991 game against the Falcons (559).

—The Redskins held Drew Brees, who came into the game averaging an NFL-best 345 yards per game, to 209 yards. He had not passed for fewer than 255 yards in a game this season prior to this one. The Redskins remain one of just three NFL teams that has not allowed a 300-yard passer this season.

—The Redskins are now 4-5 after nine games. They have not had a better record after nine games since 2008, when they were 6-3.


Today’s schedule: Jay Gruden news conference, 3 p.m.

Days until: Redskins @ Panthers 6; Giants @ Redskins 13; Monday night Cowboys @ Redskins 21

In case you missed it

    Finally the losing streak curse has been broken (our first 9 game nemesis since 2008)!!! And broken in great fashion. The 2-headed monster is back, MoJo!! Jones continues to show his NFL dominance.

    DJax with a catch beyond 40! Field stretched and look what happened with our running game. Dump passes to RBs with linebackers stretched in coverage.

    Crowder money! Reed so athletic. Riley came to life! Baker you bet!!

    Cousins. What can you say a perfect game. Where are the RGIII blinded fans now? Still want RGIII or have you finally seen the light with what Kirk brings? Kirk is by far the best QB in the roster. And looking more and more like a franchise QB for us. I would say lock this guy up now with contract vs letting him blowout the rest of the season like this and then be Dalton-like-expensive. Cousins is looking like our future. Hard to deny.

    Coaching. Wow. They finally coached a game with success. Nice game planning it worked!

    Great team win!

    • Come on man - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:15 AM

      Really? Your first instinct is to talk sh!t to fans of the same team for liking a player on the very same team? Cousins had a good game man but you sound pitiful when you brag about him putting up numbers against literally the worst defense in the league. A good amount of short passes were extended by other players. Just leave it alone and enjoy the win

    • ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:17 AM

      Really? Your 1st instinct is to talk sh*t to fans of the same team? Kirk had a solid game man but other players definitely helped and we were playing literally the worst defense in the league. Just stfu and enjoy the win we play a real team next week

      • Cousinstakemetopromiseland - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:04 AM

        Cousins !! Best
        Qb performance I’ve seen I a redskisn team in 20 years. If your not on the bandwagon yet Erica your lost!! Good luck buddy.

        And you like that shanny? Did that performance finally give u enough credit to get another head coaching job with your cousins call? If not give
        Up the cousins campaign shanny. If that didn’t prove you right idk what will. And Morris 92 yards on 15 carries. Jones 56 yards on 11 carries. Amazing running from our backs. Exciting win for Skins fans !!

        • ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 1:44 PM

          I said that he had a solid game and I didn’t make up the fact that it was against the worst D. You guys get too comfortable disrespecting the next man with his own opinion. I just want him to do the same against good teams cuz he hasn’t. You call me a woman’s name like I wouldn’t beat you to death in any other situation you really need to chill out man we root for the same team and it’s not that hard to find ppl on the internet ijs someone with a shorter fuse could make it scary for women like yourself

      • YOU LIKE THAT - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:41 AM

        No Ericstylezz you lil man should stfu. Colorofmyskinz has sat back like the majority of real TEAM fans and read what you an idiots like you have said.You can’t be happy because most of you are Bob fans. You have ridiculed the coaches, kirk and everything else you can. Now you say oh well the Saints have the worst defense in the league. Well how about what our defense did? They shut Bree’s down, but no you forgot that…The next thing you will say, they have have still yet to win otr. True,but they are moving in the right direction.You know it all stat spewing naysayers really need to stfu. Be a fan of the team, how about that. Stats don’t make you smarter, my eyeballs tell me this team is on its way. Its sad supposed fans like you just can’t be happy. Sign Kirk to a contract now, kick Bob out the door. And you Bob fans should follow…..

        • shermanp79 - Nov 16, 2015 at 11:03 AM

          Well said! I’m tired of so much negativity!! All we want is improvement while we continue building…I think we have seen it. Yes, Gruden could improve, Cousins too but there are positive things to focus on, instead of the negative. A building team struggles on the road but they have won 4 in a row at home…that’s improvement!! In his first 6 games Cousins had 7(1 run)TD and 8 INT believe a couple fumbles too. In his last 3, 8TDs and 1 INT…that’s progress!!

          Lets stop trying to bring Gruden, Cousins, even the defense, down in every loss. Lets focus on the positive…the D held Brees to just over 200 yds, that is progress. They have not allowed a 300 yd day…that’s progress!! Let them keep building with support and enthusiasm.

          We need to change the environment of the fan base. We should be together, not against each. Some need to come to terms that RG3 is NOT a Pro QB right now. It’s Not Grudens fault, Cousins isn’t at fault for working hard trying to improve, it’s all on RG3!! He failed to be coached, wanted to do it his way and blames others without looking in the mirror. Let’s move on !! OK, point out some negatives but see the positive too while remembering what we are…..A BUILDING TEAM!!

        • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 11:24 AM

          Whoa! Whoa! Sherm, i agree but will disagree with the Rob shots or perhaps the semantics.

          Griffin is a pro. Pro in handling his third and likely last benching as a Redskin. He also is getting paid a guaranteed $6.7M for this season by the Redskins – even if cut and signed by someone else. Sounds like the definition of a professional. (That guarantee is from simply being the #2 overall pick in the 2012 draft.)

          I also think Rob has matured year to year and has accepted coaching from Gruden and Cavanaugh – especially this year. I don’t think he blames anyone but himself for not keeping the job. I’m sure he didn’t agree with the decision and wished he had another chance on the field to prove he could be the QB but contrary to others on this blog, I suspect that the coaching staff was clear in their communication with Griffin from the onset as to what he needed to improve upon and where he needed to be as QB. He may feel I got there and didn’t expect Cousins to surpass him but the guy continues to try to improve as a REDSKIN QB despite the writing on the wall suggesting he’ll never take another snap in B&G.

        • ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 1:48 PM

          I am a fan of the team what are you talking about? Rg3 is on the team so you be a fan of the team. Keep living out your dreams of being s tough guy on the internet you child

        • sidepull - Nov 16, 2015 at 5:21 PM

          Can I get an AMEN? Stay positive. It took years to get this way and its no overnight fix. HTTR

    • hk2000 - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:26 AM

      Even Rex Grossman and John Beck could’ve done that against that defense- I’m tired of fans who see a good game against a horrible defense like that, and immediately get full of themselves!!! I hope the players don’t adopt that attitude.
      In fact, what I’m happy about is our defense. To me the defense won the game- this was one of the best offenses in the league, and we held them to 14 points!!! So as it turns out, we only needed 15 points to win the game!! All the Cousins lovers are beyond themselves today I’m sure, but this was a great defensive performance above all else.

      • skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:19 AM

        You’re doing exactly what you’re complaining that others do, you’ve just taken the opposite position. Literally.

        • hk2000 - Nov 16, 2015 at 2:39 PM

          Is there anything inaccurate in my statement?

        • skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 5:30 PM


      • hail74 - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:19 AM

        This was a total team win. No denying that but I imagine that if gruden had benched cousins and started rg3 and he put up those numbers, you and those of your ilk would be blowing up this blog with support for bob.

        • hk2000 - Nov 16, 2015 at 2:48 PM

          I did not mention Griffin anywhere in my statement. In fact I’ve been supportive of Cousin’s (relatively speaking). My issue has always been with the coach and not with the QB, but if your problem is that I don’t go over the top praising him, then I can’t help you there. And to say if Gruden played Griffin instead, I was going to be happy with Gruden? Hell no. The point I was making, is that it was our D who deserves the credit given that the Saints Defense was so bad any offense was going to have success!! If you want to take this game and the Bucs game and crown Gruden as an Offensive genius and Cousins as an elite QB, go right ahead, why not? Rich and Tarik have been churning out articles to that effect all day.

      • redskinsnameisheretostay - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:04 AM

        To Cousins credit; his operation of the offense is starting to look superb to me. I understand many passes were more about the YAC. However, you have to credit Cousins in getting the ball to the right players to post those YACs. I don’t think Rex or Beck for sure could have posted as flawless of a game as Cousins did today. Tom Brady has made a career of short range passes but he has proven over and over that he can produce great numbers with those short quick passes. Cousins is no where near Tom Brady career wise but Cousins is showing good results in consecutive games. So I think it’s fair to credit his performance not only from today but how it’s been built off previous games now.

        • gasngo14 - Nov 16, 2015 at 4:34 PM

          I told you so :))

      • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:10 AM

        Typical Hong Kong hate. “Even Rex Grossman and John Beck could’ve…”

        True the Saints defense is historically bad but also true is this nugget from this here piece: KIRK COUSINS IS THE FIRST QB THIS YEAR TO POST A PERFECT QB RATING.

        Both can be true and are true. Let the fact escape you that NINE other QBs had a shot at perfection against that defense and let it slip away. Maybe that had something to do with the play calling/coaching. It had some to do with the defense but little since the defense played with a lead virtually the entire game and as that lead got bigger the defense played better.

      • Cousins lover - Nov 16, 2015 at 12:42 PM

        That’s because all the cousins haters and bob lovers were wrong. So cousins lovers are besides themselves. And just to have a competent qb skins fans should b too

      • squawonthewarpath - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:18 PM

        How is supporting the team and being happy about yesterday’s game making fans “full of themselves?” I am happy about the performance of the entire team. The team finally puts it all together and accomplishes a big win, yet there are some who still want to complain or make negative comments. Also, I don’t recall either Beck or Grossman ever having the maximum QB rating. Someone just had to mention something about people being “Cousin’s lovers”. What I find interesting and what is clear from reading all the comments throughout this season is those who tend to invoke the term “Cousin’s lovers” with a negative connotation have issues because they still would prefer to have Griffin at the helm instead of Cousins. Like someone still yearning for a long-lost love. Get over it and move on because THIS team has!

  2. skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 6:37 AM

    That win took me back. I remembered the Redskins of the 80’s and how they would win games like that a few times a season. What initially looked like a barn burner turned into an annihilation. Nice to be on the right side of those once in a while. Just one game though. Win the next one to validate this one, sorta.

    Brandon Browner should be suspended for a cheap shot on Spencer Long during Matt Jones long TD. He went out of his way and avoided tackling Jones to blind side Long who was trailing on the play. Watch #39 on the replay.

    • colorofmyskinz - Nov 16, 2015 at 7:03 AM

      Next week panthers that lead the entire NFC. The the Giants the week after who lead the NFC east. If we win next week watch out! We will quickly move into playoff contenders if we can take the panthers out!!

      If we beat the panthers I think we can win 7 straight.

      • troylok - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:06 AM

        Carolina defense is not paper thin like the defense of the Saints. The good news is the Carolina offense has fewer weapons than New Orleans: shut Olsen down and keep Newton from buying time with his legs.

        • sidepull - Nov 16, 2015 at 5:24 PM

          Carolina is a game that will produce a few interesting needs for this team:
          A win on the road
          Back to back victories
          A win over a tough opponent

          That kind of win would go a long way as a measuring stick for growth.

    • joparks2012 - Nov 16, 2015 at 7:59 PM

      Totally agree on the Browner hit. If I was the Saints coach, I would have yanked him. He didn’t even go after the ball carrier and just waited to blindside the lineman. A real cheap play that I’m surprised didn’t draw a flag but hopefully will draw a stiff fine.

  3. gasngo14 - Nov 16, 2015 at 7:14 AM

    This team is growing and it’s fun watching them grow, there will be bumps in road ahead but we are headed in the right direction!


  4. hail74 - Nov 16, 2015 at 7:28 AM

    The difference was the blocking. My guess it was a big emphasis during practice. This is the kind of game that can breed confidence. Hopefully they build off of it. Skins teams of past would let it go to there heads and stink it up the next game but I feel this team gets it.

    • ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      I saw Scherff hand out some punishment on several occasions yesterday

    • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:24 AM

      The blocking was considerably improved but how much of that improvement is going against the Saints? The screen to Jones was executed perfectly. Great job on the pop quiz; next week is the test.

      • skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 11:22 AM

        Browner couldve tackled Jones but he never even looked. He was busy head hunting Spencer for some reason. Dirty play.

        • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 11:26 AM

          I’ll go look at it.

        • ajbus1 - Nov 16, 2015 at 4:28 PM

          That was super dirty. There was another Saint on that play, who also could’ve tackled Jones, that took one of our Redskins out at the knees slightly before the Browner hit.

  5. hk2000 - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:12 AM

    As a fan, I’m not taking much from the offense in this game- it really wasn’t much considering that defense, BUT, I never been this excited about our defense since the days of Sean Taylor!!!! They won the game for us! Remember, the Giants scored 49 points on that team, but needed more than 52 to win, we only needed 15. Last week we had issues w/ offense, but our defense gave us a chance- IMO.

    • ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:19 AM

      Yes sir, no point in dwelling on this victory it could give us some false confidence. I do feel like we have a real shot at beating CAR tho, we’ll see

    • Skulb - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:28 AM

      Any time you put up historic numbers against an NFL team it’s good, no matter which team it is. Nobody else has been able to mangle the Saints like this in 2015. And as bad as they were statistically coming in they are worse now.

    • hail74 - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:24 AM

      My take away for the offense was the blocking. All day they won point of attack. Cousins has nothing left to prove to me, he’s been doing it for weeks now.

    • skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:31 AM

      The defense has been mostly bad this season. Even last week. Soft, missing tackles, zero pass rush. This week they were better. In an above post you’re chiding anyone getting excited over Cousins performance and here you are, bursting at the seams over one game on defense. Evoking Sean Taylor? Really?

      • ET - Nov 16, 2015 at 1:26 PM

        While I’m not completely sold on our defensive prowess, either, the fact remains that the pass defense has improved significantly—from 24th to 12th YOY, according to ESPN stats. The run D got off to a good start but is headed in the opposite direction. There’s still time to improve that state of affairs.

      • hk2000 - Nov 16, 2015 at 4:12 PM

        Look we know you just don’t like any of my posts but since everything I said is true, you attack me from a different angle, WTF is wrong with evoking ST? If you understood it as saying we have his equivalent, then you’re dumb!!!!! My pint is they held one of the best offenses to 14 points!!! And…. NO, our defense has not been mostly bad- not by a long shot, they gave the offense a chance to win against NE, but our offense DROPPED THE BALL!!!!!! Next time you see my name on a post, just skip it- see if I give a F.

        • skinsgame - Nov 16, 2015 at 5:35 PM

          You’re right, I don’t like your posts. They’re emotional drivel. I also won’t pass the chance to point out your hypocrisy of pretending everyone is going over the top with joy while you go over the top with baseless garbage about our defense when it’s statistaically false.

  6. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:17 AM

    Just a fun, great game. HTTR!

  7. ericstylezz - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:18 AM

    Good team effort, we actually have a shot at the division if we can keep it together. Our schedule isn’t getting any easier and Romo is coming back so its time to really focus. The coming weeks will show who we actually are, yesterday was a homecoming game

    • Skulb - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:31 AM

      The Giants game is the big one for me, whether they win or lose against Carolina. If they can beat New York it’ll mean either tying up the division or pulling back to one game out, depending on next week. Either way we will be a good position to take control of the division after that game. But if we lose against New York it will most likely mean handing them the NFC East.

  8. timwillhide - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:36 AM

    Great play calling by Gruden yesterday and Great game from Cousins. Throwing down field opened up the run game . Beautiful pass down the field got the ball rolling Good game Redskins.

    • hail74 - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:27 AM

      Agreed, definitely the best called offensive game plan of the year.

  9. greed - Nov 16, 2015 at 8:37 AM

    finally we beat a bad team like they suppose to be beat! Now the real test for gruden,kirk and the boys 5 games against real teams how ya gonna act?

  10. redskinsnameisheretostay - Nov 16, 2015 at 9:34 AM

    This is one where I can’t wait to review the game on because there were positive performances all over the field coming from both sides of the ball. The most important aspect is the offense shredded a bad defense. The biggest surprise was the defense holding the Saints offense to just 14 points. That is the lowest output in points for the Saints this season. Shredding a bad defense is not a discredit to the performance. It’s a great indicator of what good offenses do in the NFL. The passing game seems to have stuck to it’s commitment to stretch the field more since the 2nd half of the Tampa game. That commitment has shown positive results for Cousins and the passing unit. And as guaranteed by me, the running game came back to life bu posting over 100 yards rushing …well 213 to be exact.

    Cousins has now solidified his starting position on this team for the season IMO. The remaining games are a huge opportunity for Cousins to build on in hopes of sealing a long term contract here. Regardless, of what the outcome is for Cousins for the remainder of the games, he’ll be a highly sought after QB in the NFL.

    I saw a recent report that this was his father’s first chance to see Cousins at a game as he is battling Cancer. I couldn’t be happier to see Cousins put out such a great performance in front of his father. This game is not just a tribute to Cousins but more importantly that it is one while in the presence of his father battling a deadly disease.

    • YOU LIKE THAT - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:09 AM

      I truly believe Cousins is our future as Qb. It would be nice if the gave him let’s say a 3 year 25 million contract. I don’t believe waiting until the end of the year would be smart. As other team who are n dire need may throw a lot of money at him n FA. And it could end up costing more then to keep him.And I believe franchising him should not even be an option.

      • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:32 AM

        Cousins agent is in no hurry to sign a contract with #8’s recent play. He’ll want a Tannehill/Kaepernick type deal. Both parties are in a wait and see but let’s talk situation.

        • YOU LIKE THAT - Nov 16, 2015 at 1:34 PM

          Actually a Tannehill type contract would be good. Its more of a prove it type with not a whole lot of guarantee. I just think it would boost moral with whole team to sign he m now.

        • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 3:06 PM

          Exactly. Both Kaepernick and Tannehill have HUGE contracts but are relatively low commitment by the team (in years). Kaep could be released at the end of this year will little dead money ($7.4M dead money; but $9.4M in savings.). The Dalton deal would be the best 6 years, $96M with only $17M guaranteed. However, if Cousins continues to play like he has, then that $16.1M in savings for releasing Rob will get entirely used on Kirk.

      • redskinsnameisheretostay - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:33 AM

        “I don’t believe waiting until the end of the year would be smart. ”

        The question right now would be if Cousins’ agent allows Cousin to sign a 12 million dollar a year offer. If Cousins believes in himself then the longer he plays into the season, the more the market may significantly increase his contract value. So signing a just a 3 year contract now may just undercut his real value come the end of the season. What is more significant is how much would the team guarantee right now.

  12. bohurley421 - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:23 AM

    Seriously people we are all fans of the same team. HTTR! It’s clear RG3 will never be back and FINALLY kirk is showing full improvement. The first thing I saw was someone rubbing that kirk did so well in another face like they would be upset that he did great and we won. Grow up shake hands get behind the team!

  13. firesnyder - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:31 AM

    Just a perfectly executed game on defense and offense… to fans, it was like water after being in the desert for 40 days. However, that Saints defense was obviously horrific, but this performance opens eyes that we actually have a shot at Carolina *if* a bunch of things go right.

    I also would like to point out that Gruden’s tactic of sitting guys when they aren’t performing is working. Accountability… you like that? Riley looked pissed off.

    Finally, I think the Redskins actually took something away from that New England game. Total team blocking which New England actually modeled to the Skins. I’ve havn’t seen Redskins O lineman and receivers hustling AND actually executing downfield blocks like that in a LONNNG time. It was great to see.


  14. bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:52 AM

    Key moment in the game was the first drive of the 2nd half with the score 27-14: An 11 play 6:07 drive that ends on downs with two short-yardage stands by the defense. HUGE! Later in the TV broadcast the announcers were wondering why the Saints just didn’t ATTEMPT the 48/49 yard FG. Little did they know that when Kai Forbath is your kicker an outdoor FG from this distance is very wind dependent. There was also the fact that the Saints weren’t exactly stopping the Redskins from scoring. The Redskins were only 50% in the Red zone yesterday but that number is a little askew because they could’ve tried some passes after the Drew-Brees-tries-to-be-a-hero-on-4th-down phase failed from the Saint 21. That point it was game, set, match. Then the game suddenly had a college feel as all the 2nd and 3rd stringers start standing closer to coach to see if this is there time.

    Kudos to Kai,however, for showing that short kick-offs can be effective if you got guys who can get down there.

  15. Stephfan - Nov 16, 2015 at 10:54 AM

    Kirk has one good game against a below average defense. Let’s not act like the saints defense is a monster. Because did Kirk do this against the jets, pats, or even the Giants? I don’t think so. Sorry Kirk fans I’m not impressed but Morris… Thank god they let that man lose, giving him more carries

    • bangkokben - Nov 16, 2015 at 11:04 AM

      Kirk doesn’t get a pass for going against a sorry defense, but you gave Alfred one. I understand…

    Since there are TWENTY NFL teams below .500 and it has been three years, I’m going to talk playoff scenarios. Every REAL fan knows that the Redskins are only a half game out of 1st place for the NFC east but also right now the Redskins sit in 7th – not tied for 7th – in the NFC. (There are tiebreakers for a reason.) However seventh, two games behind Atlanta and Green Bay for that final playoff spot. In the realm of “if and buts,” the Redskins would’ve been in that final wild card spot had they either not played prevent in Atlanta’s final drive or had Cousins not been intercepted on the Grant “slip.” Take your pick. (Get it?) Whateves.

    Moving forward, OUR team could present an interesting challenge next week before they face division rivals, the Giants and Cowboys back to back at home. The Redskins have been rock stars at home despite all those empty seats. if the Redskins manage to be 6-6 after the next three games, I’ll be back here in three weeks and we’ll really have something to talk about.

    Now is the cue for the Negative Nellies to ignore the facts, the Chicken Littles to pump up the opposition, and superstitious to knock on wood or rub that rabbit’s foot. Do what you got to do. HTTR!

      If the Skins can manage 6-6, they’ll be in a promising position. Taking any two of the next three would be significant, but the Giants game is the key to any post-season hopes.

      (I’m not above knocking on (unvarnished) wood just to be safe.)

      Yeh usual suspects posting their negative rubbish as per usual

      Couple things which stood out for me was the effort from everyone on screen plays…great to see linemen..receivers all chipping in (not seen that commitment for no yrs)

      Also how clean the team bn playing…first four games we on pace for record total…last 5 I believe we had 16 pens….shows players are making real effort…coaches message getting through

      How anyone can knock cousins performance is just plain ignorant……

      Win on road vs best team in nfc could b springboard to bigger things….however we lose its one behind with six left……said it before we 6-6 with four left I will take our chances
