Redskins CB Wilson upset over TD pass |
Redskins corner Josh Wilson wouldn’t change anything about how he played the 18-yard touchdown pass to Julio Jones. Mainly, he said, because he did his job. And someone else didn’t do theirs. Jones made a tightrope catch along the sidelines over the top of Wilson. However, Wilson said he did his job. "It was a cover-2, figure that out," Wilson said. In other words: the safety wasn’t there.

OK, you want more numbers on Cundiff? Of his last 49 field goal attempts, he’s made only 35. That’s a 71.4 percent success rate. That’s not a small sample size, either and it’s far below average.

"It was just one of those bang-bang plays," Weatherspoon said. "He got outside, kept going, and it happened so fast when we hit each other. Unfortunately, he went out of the game, but hopefully he’s doing good."

Yes I know he threw two interceptions at the end of the game that allowed the Falcons to run out the clock, but this loss is not blamed on him. Cousins is a rookie who barely gets any snaps in practice, especially with the starters. So it is not surprising to see him and Fred Davis on a different page on a timing route (1st interception).

Running back Alfred Morris, picked in the sixth round of this year's draft, continues to roll. He had his second straight 100-yard rushing game, picking up 115 on 18 carries and catching a 20-yard pass for good measure. No other Redskins running back got more than one carry.

"I thought in the first half we had some opportunities to get some momentum going and couldn’t make those third downs," he said. "That’s been pretty consistent for us to be the football team we need to be, and be able to keep someone a little bit more off-balance than we did, we’ve got to convert on those third downs. We were close, had a couple of hands that were very close to making those third downs, but you’ve got to make them."
