Redskins' Kirk Cousins admits he needs to 'play better'

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins shouldered the blame for Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, telling reporters "I've got to be better."

What It Means:

The Redskins' offense generated only 10 points on Sunday with Cousins completing 23-of-40 passes for 240 yards with 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and 2 fumbles. Despite a stagnant offense all game long, Washington had the ball in the closing minutes down 5 before Cousins had a fumble returned for a touchdown, icing the game for the Eagles. Cousins and the Redskins will have their hands full in Week 2 as they face a resurgent Los Angeles Rams defense on the road.

Our models project Cousins for 286.4 passing yards, 1.5 touchdowns, and 0.8 interceptions for 17.7 FanDuel points in Week 2, making him our 11th-best quarterback for the week.
