LANDOVER, Md. – With consistent swirling winds, you would think the passing game was the last thing Jay Gruden would emphasize on Sunday night. Well, think again, because Kirk Cousins had a career night, throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns.

Captain Kirk hit seven different receivers on the night. Pierre Garçon led the ‘Skins with 6 catches for 116 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown haul. Behind him was Jamison Crowder, who continues to surge as the season progresses. Crowder had 3 catches for 102 yards and a 53-yard touchdown.

It’d be hard to give the game ball out to just one player though, as the whole Redskins offense was firing on all cylinders. On the ground Robert Kelley continued to show why he earned the lead back role, rushing for 137 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries. Kelley’s three touchdowns tied the team rookie-record.

It’s a short week for the ‘Skins as they travel to Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.
