LANDOVER Cheap Vincent Valentine Jersey , Md. (AP) As his mind wandered to whether it was his final home game as the Washington’s starting quarterback, Kirk Cousins had a bigger concern early against the Denver Broncos and their top-ranked defense.
”After the first couple of possessions, I didn’t know if we were going to get 100 yards on them,” Cousins said.
Cousins and the Redskins rebounded from losing 2 yards on their first two drives to put up 386 yards and three touchdowns against the Broncos in a 27-11 rout Sunday. Cousins was 19 of 37 with TD passes to Jamison Crowder , Josh Doctson and Vernon Davis and an interception, and managed the game well.

”It just came down to protecting, making the throws Cheap Trey Flowers Jersey , making the catches and converting,” said Cousins, the first quarterback in Washington history with three seasons of 25 or more TD passes and needs 65 yards for his third in a row with 4,000-plus yards. ”It was an imperfect game, certainly, but when you have a defense playing at such a high level, it kept us in the game and kept giving us a chance Cheap Tom Brady Jersey , and then we finally got rolling and made enough plays to pull away.”
Washington’s 386 offensive yards are third most by a Denver opponent this season, behind only Philadelphia and New England. The Broncos came in giving up an average of 276.8 yards a game.
The Redskins (7-8) came 78 seconds from not allowing a touchdown for a second consecutive game for the first time since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Washington, which allowed a combined 68 points in its previous two games, forced three turnovers.
”That’s the name of the game,” said linebacker Zach Vigil, who recovered a fumble. ”The more turnovers a defense can get and get the ball back to the offense, just gives you a great opportunity to win the game.”
After a week of uncertainty Cheap Tedy Bruschi Jersey , Brock Osweiler started at QB over Paxton Lynch for the Broncos (5-10) and was 22 of 38 for 193 yards with a fumble and an interception .
WHAT’S HE THINKING?
Rookie receiver Isaiah McKenzie made a memorable blunder late in the first half that likely cost Denver three points. With the Broncos out of timeouts, McKenzie caught the ball near the sideline inside the Washington 30-yard line and kicker Brandon McManus’ field goal range. But he didn’t go out of bounds Cheap Steve Grogan Jersey , and Osweiler and other offensive teammates were visibly upset not to get another snap.
