In case you haven’t heard by now, the Washington Redskins today extended their winning streak to four games with a 31-28, overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens at FedExField.
The Redskins (7-6) made a furious comeback with little time remaining in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Down eight and with starting quarterback Robert Griffin III on the sidelines nursing a knee injury, backup quarterback Kirk Cousins came in and threw a touchdown to wide receiver Pierre Garcon to get within two points.
The ensuing two-point conversion — a run on a quarterback draw by Cousins — was also good, and the game was tied to force overtime. After the Washington defense forced the Baltimore offense off the field on its opening possession, cornerback Richard Crawford took the ensuing punt inside the Baltimore 30-yard line. From there, kicker Kai Forbath continued his perfect season and nailed the game-winning kick.
