Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 24-21 win at Chicago that I watched about half of.
Kirk Cousins — The Skins won on the road, and Cousins posted a decent game away from home too! The 104 rating and 300 yards are nice, but he threw two of the worst passes you’re ever going to see, one of which was picked and one of which was a miracle. He still comes away smelling like a rose.
Jordan Reed — Nine catches on nine targets for 120 yards and what should’ve been two touchdowns. Didn’t commit a penalty either, which is progress. Has officially put together one of the best TE seasons in franchise history.
Matt Jones — Eighty-six total yards, and he could be excused for that weird fumble.
Ryan Kerrigan — Picked up another sack, his fourth in four games.
Terrance Knighton — Got his first sack of the season. Just seemed to be tearing shit up.
Trent Murphy — Second straight week with a sack. Forced a fumble this time, too.
Jay Gruden — Six wins. They could lose out, which would suck, and this season would still qualify as a success. Win two of the last three, though, and we’re talking about a smash hit.
Redskins tight ends have had at least 9 catches for at least 120 yards and at least one TD three times since 1960. Twice was Reed vs Chicago

Alfred Morris — Twenty-four yards on 11 carries. Is now averaging a pitiful 3.4 yards/carry this season. Did score his first TD, though.
The offense after turnovers — HOLY SHIT IT’S FREE MONEY JUST PICK IT UP
The Redskins social media dept. — Oops.
We make fun of the Skins for winning the East at 6-7. But it's not like they're stealing a spot. NFC only has 5 winning teams.

Pierre Thomas — Nice to see a midweek pickup contribute right away, even if it was just one catch. My favorite part about the acquisition? He had 4.9 yards/carry and an 82% catch rate with New Orleans last year. My second favorite part? The Redskins offense now has two guys named Pierre.
