WATCH: Cousins takes knee by accident, gives Eagles belated Christmas present

With only six seconds left before the end of the first half and no timeouts at the Eagles’ 6-yard line, the Redskins were poised to add to their 16-10 lead.

Except they didn’t.

For some reason, Kirk Cousins took a knee rather than running a play of spiking the ball. Taking a knee was pretty much the ONLY thing he couldn’t do.

He had a complete brain freeze on national television during the biggest game of the season.

The Redskins are a win away from claiming the NFC East crown. We’ll see if those points left on the field come back to haunt them.

It may have been just Washington Redskins’ DeSean Jackson‘s second touchdown of the year, but what a touchdown it was.

Early in the second quarter of their game with the New York Giants, QB Kirk Cousins rolled to his right and heaved a deep pass that sailed right over the heads of the torched Giants secondary and into the arms of a streaking Jackson.

Jackson then quickly turned around and waltzed backwards into the end zone, as if to say, “That’s all you got?”
