2nd Quarter:

DEFENSE
- Nice batted pass at LOS by Murphy

*Roberts fumbles punt return

- Cousins read-option for TD

*we may have the only kicker in the league who can barely reach the end zone

DEFENSE
- Nice pressure by defense forces Manziel out of pocket; throws ball away

OFFENSE

- Sack by Jackson Jeffcoat on Manziel to end the half


3rd Quarter:

OFFENSE
- Cousins great pass over the middle to Ross
- Redd injured - fumbled on play

DEFENSE
- This Plummer kid at LB is pretty active

OFFENSE
- Cousins hits Ross on 3rd down for the 1st
- Really like how Kouandjio is finishing blocks

- Kouandjio again holds block and gets RB some extra yards
- Bullett from Cousins to Reggie Bell to 3 yard line
- TD Williams

DEFENSE
- Plummer makes tackle in backfield
- Corner blitz - Cromartie-Smith sack on Shaw
- Big sack by Preston Smith - beats man badly
- Big pass defended by Jarrett

OFFENSE
- Nice bootleg and pass from McCoy to Dixon for big gain

4th Quarter:

OFFENSE
- Ross makes nice catch on 3rd and long - comes up just short
- Redskins go for it on 4th down - incomplete

DEFENSE
- Plummer did a great job filling
- Nice pass defended by Dunbar on 3rd and short
- Plummer another tackle in backfield

*Int by Davis



Game Take-away's:
- Moses HAS really improved. I see why he's playing RT.
- Kouandjio really impressed me at LG - finished his blocks well.
- Scherff was neither good nor bad.
- Cousins looked sharp, although it was against 2nd team defense.
- Ross had a nice game at WR, but has a ways to go as a route runner.
- Matt Jones has QUICK feet for a big man - he's going to be fun to watch!
- LeRibeus struggled at center.
- Preston Smith impressed me with his hustle. Had a sack and a pressure.
- Terrance Plummer is fun to watch! Kid was all over the field.
- Paea was active early on - no splash plays, but still very active.
- Spaight was a bit hit-or-miss.....literally
- Jarrett showed good instincts and speed. He really flies around back there.
- We better trade for a damn TE!
