Redskins vs. Patriots – Offensive Grades
Offensive Grade analysis for the Washington Redskins preseason win at home over the New England Patriots.
Starting QB Robert Griffin III was only in the game for one series but he did lead the Redskins to a field and nearly had a touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson. It seemed as though he was trying to not make a mistake as he didn’t throw the ball down field much and checked down to his running backs taking what the defense gave him.
Backup Kirk Cousins had a near pick early as he threw deep to Robinson in double coverage, but he rebounded nicely finishing the game going 9-13 for 103 yards and 1 TD pass. Third quarterback Colt McCoy also had a strong performance as his experience gave him an edge and he guided three Redskins scoring drives in the second half. McCoy was 8-9 for 102 yards and 1 TD pass.
As a whole, the quarterbacks didn’t commit any turnovers and went 19-26 for 210 yards and 2 TD passes. Not bad.
