Kirk Cousins says difference between 3-13 and 13-3 isn’t that much

The Washington Redskins had a solid season in 2012 winning the NFC East division title. In 2013, things went very differently as the Redskins went 3-13. Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins says the margin for error is so small that the difference between a 3-13 season and a 13-3 campaign isn’t “that much.”

“It is kind of perplexing when you look at the start of the season, how high the expectations were coming off a great year in 2012, and it didn’t go the way we wanted it to,” Cousins said, via Dan Steinberg of theWashington Post. “But you know, it’s the NFL. When you look at week to week, the margin for error is so small. And you take one, two plays, that makes a difference in almost every game. So the difference between going 3-13 and 13-3, it isn’t that much. And we won a lot of close games down the stretch in 2012 to get into the playoffs, and we lost a lot of close games in 2013 that kept us away from getting into the playoffs. So I think it’s those inches that make the difference, and we’ve got to find ways to get those inches to fall our way in the next upcoming season.”
