In his first NFL start, Kirk Cousins went 26-for-37 for 329 yards with two touchdowns, one interception as the Washington Redskins beat the Cleveland Browns (coached by former MSU center Pat Shurmur) 38-21 in Cleveland today.
Some MSU players apparently made the trip down to Cleveland, including Andrew Maxwell and Fou Fonoti.
After starting 1-for-6 with an INT that led to a Browns touchdown, Cousins went 25-for-31 with two touchdowns the rest of the way. It was a terrific gameplan by Washington. It seemed like every pass was a play-action rollout, giving Cousins time to look downfield. He made a ton of great throws and even ran three times for 22 yards.
Congrats to Kirk.
