Cousins, Thompson lead Redskins to 27-20 win vs Rams STATS AP Sep 17, 2017 LOS ANGELES (AP) The Washington Redskins ran and ran and ran some more. They did let Kirk Cousins throw the ball some, and he came through with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant with 1:49 to play to give the Redskins a 27-20 victory Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams and rookie head coach Sean McVay. But this victory was earned with smash-mouth running. The Redskins (1-1) rushed 39 times for 229 yards, including touchdowns of 71 and 7 yards by Chris Thompson. This was billed a showdown between McVay and his former boss, Redskins coach Jay Gruden. Gruden got the upper hand with his play calling. ''We definitely needed this,'' Thompson said. ''It was big for us to finally get going. We had a rough preseason running the ball. Last week was rough also. So to be able to go out there and get over 200 yards rushing was great. Now it's on us. We've got to continue to keep it going.'' Cousins capped the winning 70-yard drive by finding Grant in the front left corner of the end zone. Even that drive was run heavy, with Samaje Perine carrying seven times. Subscribe now we cant lose
