The Bad – Part 2
On Cousins’ second pick he threw another bad pass to tight end Derek Carrier. I was disappointed with Carrier’s play most of the night, primarily his blocking but there wasn’t much he could with that pass as it wasn’t an accurate throw and was batted in the air and picked off.
It just seems as though sometimes Cousins just simply lacks awareness out there. This turnover came when the Redskins were driving in Giants territory and again Cousins was reckless with the ball. I’m not sure how much more experience Cousins needs to stop making these plays?
The third Redskins turnover was a huge blow. With the Giants leading 25-6 early in the fourth quarter the Redskins mounted a 13 play 76 yard drive and it looked like they were going to score on a Matt Jones run when the ball was knocked loose from his hands into the end zone.
The Redskins were unable to recover the fumble and it rolled out bounds and was a touchback. This pretty much stifled any chance of a comeback for the Redskins and it was Jones’ second fumble in as many games.
As good as he’s looked so far this season Jones can’t make this a habit.
