Rookies Shine As Redskins Down Ravens 31-28 In OT
Replacing an injured Robert Griffin, Kirk Cousins threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon with 29 seconds left in the fourth quarter before running in the game-tying 2-point conversion, and the Redskins later came through with a thrilling 31-28 overtime triumph over the Baltimore Ravens at FedEx Field.
Richard Crawford, another member of Washington's 2012 draft class, came through with a pivotal 64-yard punt return in overtime to set up Kai Forbath's third field goal of the afternoon -- a 34-yard kick 3:23 into the extra session.
Griffin completed 15-of-26 throws for 246 yards and a touchdown before being forced out by a right leg injury on the eventual tying drive, while fellow rookie Alfred Morris rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries to help the resurgent Redskins (7-6) to their fourth consecutive win.
Joe Flacco threw three first-half touchdown passes -- two of which went to Anquan Boldin -- and Ray Rice put up 121 rushing yards and a touchdown on 20 attempts for Baltimore (9-4). Still, the Ravens suffered their second straight defeat following a four-game win streak and missed out on a chance to secure a playoff spot.
