Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 29-27 win at New York …
Su’a Cravens — Gorgeous game-clinching INT for the rookie safety/LB we all have high hopes for.
Kirk Cousins — This wasn’t Good Kirk, but it wasn’t Bad Kirk either (except for taking that sack at the end of the first half). A step in the right direction. By the way, he’s on pace for 5,275 passing yards, which would be the third-most ever.
Jamison Crowder — Four catches for 78 yards, including a 55-yard TD. Also broke off a 50-yard punt return that featured him dancing on both sidelines.
Quinton Dunbar — I have no idea what he was doing on the punt return he accidentally touched that later turned into a TD for NY. But that high degree of difficulty one-handed red-zone INT made up for it. Also caught a fake-punt downfield pass like he was DeSean.
DeSean Jackson — Five catches for 96 yards and one beautiful score. Continues to look good this (contract) year.
Josh Norman — ODB got some (seven catches, 121 yards), but it took 11 targets to do it, and he never found paydirt. Oh, and Norman made him cry.
Jordan Reed — Unreal one-handed catch-and-run on a long third down for a first.
David Bruton Jr. — Even though it wasn’t ruled as such, that looked like an end-zone INT to me.
Trent Murphy — Another sack. That’s three in two weeks.
Chris Baker — Absolutely crushed Eli, forcing a fumble.
Dustin Hopkins — Five-for-five on field goals, and the only kickoff he didn’t touchback was a short one that was returned shy of the 25 (more on that later).
Tress Way — Who knew Tress Way had an arm on him?
Jay Gruden — Not calling timeout at the end of the half was bad clock management, and running it on third-and-three on the final drive was too conservative, but they did have a more balanced offense and got a much-needed win at New York, so here we are.

Bashaud Breeland, Shaun Lauvao, DeAngelo Hall and Kory Lichtensteiger — All hurt, and Breeland and Lavau better not be for long. Hall’s may be an ACL.
Dashaun Phillips — All I know is he can’t stay with Sterling Shephard.
Trent Williams — Had to play some left guard, where he’d never played before.
Matt Jones and Chris Thompson — Twenty-three carries for 88 yards. Okay.
Robert Kelley — Between the hair and lack of extra yards, it’s hard to tell the difference between him and Jones.
Orleans Darkwa — What’s an Orleans Darkwa?
Ben Kowitca (special teams coach) — Had a punt blocked (negated by penalty). Pulled off a successful fake punt. And I’m not sure if this is strategy or what, but each of the past two weeks Hopkins has pooched a kickoff high and to the right, and the other team hasn’t gotten it out to the 25. Something to watch.
