Foles left MSU because of Cousins

Small world.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, assuming he stays healthy, next week takes on the man he couldn't beat out for the starting job at Michigan State - Kirk Cousins. Foles transferred to Arizona.

That's because Robert Griffin III exited in excruciating pain in the first quarter of Washington's game Sunday with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Griffin could miss the rest of the season after dislocating his left ankle.

The Burgundy and Gold didn't miss a beat, though.

In fact they switched gears with Cousins, who threw their first two scoring passes of the season and amassed 250 yards through the air en route to a 41-10 blowout.

Head coach Jay Gruden had to enjoy the energy Cousins brought to the previously lifeless offense.

Washington also sacked Chad Henne 10 times, four of the drops by left outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who would be matched against Andrew Gardner of the Eagles.
