Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is shouldering a lot of blame for a Week 5 loss that wasn't all his fault.

The Washington Redskins may have settled on Kirk Cousins as the team’s starting quarterback, but that doesn’t mean every Redskins fan is on board with the decision. A local Washington bar was offering free shots to patrons every time Cousins threw an interception during Sunday’s Week 5 25-19 overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Those who attended the game at this unconfirmed bar, in Adams Morgan, enjoyed two free shots during Sunday’s loss. With Cousins’ two interceptions in Week 5, his season total is now up to six through just five games.
Cousins doesn’t deserve the blame for one of the two interceptions in Week 5, and he hasn’t played as poorly as this bar deal would indicate. The addition of wide receiver DeSean Jackson and hopefully tight end Jordan Reed in the coming weeks should help Cousins find a better rhythm going forward.
