26. Washington Redskins (24)

Over the years, Kirk Cousins has a history of having some of his best games against the Philadelphia Eagles, but unfortunately that was far from the case on Sunday, as the quarterback would love to take back some of his costly mistakes. It may have only been one game, but the Redskins are already showing early signs of being in for a long season, which was expected by many after seeing the frustrating offseason the team put together.

Losing DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency was devastating for Cousins since these two were arguably some of his favorite targets from the last two seasons. And while the addition of Terrelle Pryor will hopefully fill some of that void left in the passing game, the wideout clearly has along way to go when it comes to proving himself.

Despite finishing the game with six catches for 66 yards, keep in mind that Pryor was targeted 11 times by Cousins throughout the game while dropping numerous passes that arguably should have been made. There’s a reason why Washington was only willing to sign Pryor to a one-year deal in free agency, and let’s hope the wideout becomes more reliable in the weeks to follow.
