Things couldn’t get much worse for the Washington Redskins today – well – outside of an injury to a vital player, say like quarterback Robert Griffin.
That’s likely why the team decided to pull Griffin from their contest against the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth quarter, trailing 45-10.
Griffin struggled all afternoon, completing just 12 of 26 passes for 164 yards against the Chiefs stout defense before being replaced by Kirk Cousins.
The talented quarterback did throw a touchdown in the second quarter, though was constantly under pressure all afternoon, continually be chased from the pocket en route to five sacks.
Not wanting to risk any type of health issue and with the game out of hand, the team had little reason not to turn to Cousins.
