Dude, what were you doing?

Uhhh, can someone explain this?

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins went from looking like an All-Pro on his team’s final drive before halftime against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday to looking like a complete doofus — yes, doofus — with six seconds left in the second quarter.

With a first-and-goal at the 6-yard line with zero timeouts left, most expected the Redskins to try and take a quick shot into the end zone and if didn’t work, kick a field goal.

But Cousins didn’t do that. Instead he did this:

That’s right, he took a knee. Whaaaaaaa?

Since the Redskins didn’t have a timeout left, the clock ran out and the half ended. Here’s what makes it worse: Head coach Jay Gruden had no idea how this happened.

And of course, there was a collection of "You like that" jokes about Cousins on Twitter. There’s no need to post them here because they were all the same and got played out within seconds.
