With Washington Redskins’ star rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III hobbled on the sidelines in the fourth quarter today against the Baltimore Ravens , the team had to turn to another rookie, Kirk Cousins, with his team down eight points to the NFC North leaders.

Cousins promptly led his team on a game-tying drive — highlighted by a touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon and a game-tying two-point conversion ran in by, who else, Cousins — to tie the game. At the end of regulation, the Redskins and the Ravens are tied at 28.
