This Sunday the Washington Redskins will play the Cincinnati Bengals for the first time in London. This game will be the Redskins first European game during the regular season.The Redskins and the Bengals have played every four years since 2004 and have won every game so far. The Redskins last played the Bengals in 2012 and lost 38-31. The Redskins are currently 4-5 in their series history with the Bengals.

In 1985 the Redskins were able to make a 17 point comeback to beat the Bengals. The Redskins started off losing to the Bengals but played hard to put more points on the board before halftime. The Redskins played with a common goal in mind and came back from being down 24-7 to winning the game 27-24. The Redskins and the Bengals game match ups took a long break from 1992-2003. During the more recent games in 2004, 2008, and 2012 the Bengals outplayed the Redskins.

If the Redskins win the game against the Bengals this will give Head Coach Jay Gruden a victory over his former team. A win this season will even their all time record against the Bengals

Is Cousins the QB for the Redskins???  I don't think so, but he's not bad.

Yeah he is this is his second season as the starting quarterback for the Redskins.

I think if Cousins continues to improve throughout the season he may have a better chance than Ryan Fitzpatrick.
