FedEx Ground Moment: Kirk Cousins' Three-Yard Touchdown Score


This week's FedEx Ground Moment of the Week takes a closer look at Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins' three-yard touchdown run.

For the fourth time in the 2015 season, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins found the end zone not with his arm, but with his legs in the team's 24-21 victory over the Chicago Bears. [



Starting their second drive at their own seven-yard line, Cousins lead the offense down the field efficiently, mixing runs with long passes.

After working their way down to the three-yard line, Cousins lined up in shotgun on 2nd and Goal with DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garçon lined up to his right with Matt Jones next to him on the left.

Cousins would fake the handoff to Jones – who was running to the right – before scampering into the end zone untouched for an easy score.

Cousins finished the game 24-for-31 for 300 yards and one touchdown with one interception along with four carries for 13 yards and his rushing score.
