Winners

Kirk Cousins — Second straight 300-yard game with four TDs and zero INTs. And it was all on him, too. He threw it 46 times, and they only had 57 yards rushing. The only time his rating has dipped below 100 in the past nine games was vs. New England and Carolina. That’s no empty stat, either; the Skins were 6-3 during that stretch.

Jordan Reed — Not sure I’ve seen another Redskins receiver, let alone a tight end, in the zone that Reed is now. His last three games: 26 catches on 28 targets for 333 yards and five TDs. FEED REED.

Preston Smith — Three-sack game for the rook, who lost his cousin to cancer earlier in the day. Now has seven sacks on the year and looks like a solid second-round pick for our one true GM.

Scot McCloughan — Give this man the Executive of the Year Award right now, if that is in fact an actual award.

Jay Gruden — Coach of the Year? Probably not, but to turn this team around from 7-25 in 2013-14 to 8-7 and an NFC East championship this year is a near-miracle.

Dashon Goldson — Made 10 tackles on a cracked rib. Was in for all 81 defensive plays too.

Will Compton — Nine tackles and his first career sack.

DeAngelo Hall — I don’t think the scoop-six was such a difficult play, but I don’t doubt his nose for the ball either. That was his 10th career defensive TD.

Ricky Jean Francois — Picked up a sack in Star Wars cleats. Also tweeted the nerd-boss McCloughan image you see up top.

Pierre Thomas — From the waiver wire to seven catches on eight targets, including a first down on 3rd-and-14, in two weeks flat.

The diehardsFans showed up in the middle of the night to welcome the team back to D.C. Ashburn. Not my cup of tea, but I respect it.

Tress Way — Averaged 50 yards on seven punts.

DeSean Jackson — That must’ve felt so good.

Losers

The kneeldown — Did not like that.

Alfred Morris — Should they even play a back that runs the ball?

Will Blackmon — He was getting targeted/used out there.

Dustin Hopkins — Missed XP and his kickoffs seem to be coming up short too. Not sure if that’s by design.

Medium

The offensive line — There’s no run game, but there is time to pass. It’s enough to win the division, but is it enough to beat Seattle?

NFC East champs got me like.
