Josh Doctson Authentic Jersey
Kirk Cousins isn’t letting the Redskins’ loss to the Chiefs keep him down.
The Washington quarterback became a first-time father Friday, when his wife gave birth to their son, Cooper.
What has gone right: Running back Carlos Hyde is a great fit in Kyle Shanahan’s offensive system. The front seven was key to stingy performances in losses to Seattle (12-6) and Arizona (18-15 in overtime).
What has gone wrong: Brian Hoyer’s quarterback play and the interior pass protection have left a lot to be desired, but that was expected heading into the season. Finding a shutdown cornerback should be San Francisco’s top defensive priority moving forward.

What has gone right: While far from dominant, the defense has looked better than it did in the preseason. Perfect so far on field-goal attempts (seven) and extra points (10), Giorgio Tavecchio is on track to permanently replace injured kicker Sebastian Janikowski.
What has gone wrong: After a strong start to the season, Marshawn Lynch has become a non-factor with 15 carries for 30 yards in the past two games. Amari Cooper, once considered one of the NFL’s top young receivers, leads the league with seven drops.
What’s next: The Raiders must hope the back issue that sidelined quarterback Derek Carr in last Sunday’s loss to Denver isn’t serious. Otherwise, Oakland could be in trouble during a three-game home stand that begins Sunday against Baltimore.
