Kirk Cousins Throws Out First Pitch At Nats Game

Quarterbacks and pitchers are a lot alike. They both have to have strong arms and both can be extremely accurate with their throws.

Nationals' fans saw a dominant performance from the team's ace, Max Scherzer, on Wednesday night, as he tied a major-league record with 20 strikeouts in nine innings against the Detroit Tigers.

Three days later, those same diehards saw another dominant performance, but this time, it came from a football player and it was on a smaller scale.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had the honor of throwing out the first pitch on Saturday night at the Marlins/Nationals game at Nationals Park, and from the video the Nationals gathered, Cousins didn't do too bad, as he wound up his right arm a few times and delivered a very nice pitch to Washington pitcher Blake Treinen.

For a second there, it looked like Cousins was having flashbacks to the 2015 season, a season in which he completed almost 70 percent of his passes. Maybe he thought he had Jordan Reed, Pierre Garçonor DeSean Jackson out open over the plate.
