Redskins QB Takes a Knee For No Reason, Costs Team Points In Crucial Game

Sports can be hectic, and in the heat of the moment even the best players can make mistakes. But the Washington Redskins’ Quarterback Kirk Cousins made a mistake during last weekend’s game with the Eagles that could have been very costly.

At the end of the first half, Cousins took a snap and decided to take a knee instead of trying to score a touchdown. With no timeouts left, the Skins were helpless to watch the clock run out. With only a 16-10 lead at the time, it was a potentially fatal error.

Cousins likely meant to spike the ball, stopping the clock with enough time for the Skins to kick a field goal. Instead, he committed this blooper. Luckily for Cousins, the Redskins won the game anyway, clinching the NFC East title.
