Watch these five players in Sunday’s Giants-Redskins game

2 of 6

1. Kirk Cousins

With a quarterback rating on the decline since last season 78.5 down from 106.1, Cousins must trust his passing game. Expect him to call plays that take advantage of wide receivers Pierre Garcon, Desean Jackson and tight end Vernon Davis. Steve Spagnuolo’s can become overprotective of the running game creating opportunities for Cousins in the backfield. The age-old rivalry will be fun to witness between the two teams. Once a cause for concern, Cousins may be able to turn things around to hamper the Giants’ stride this time.
