The latest episode of the Washington Redskins drama could be called "Let's Make a Deal. " When last we checked on ongoing soap opera in the nation's capital, coach Mike Shanahan had shut down gold-plated superstar quarterback Robert Griffin III (a.k.a. RG3) for the season and replaced him with tin-plated no-nickname signal-caller Kirk Cousins. On Friday, Shanahan revealed his master plan to a D.C. radio station: He's going to use the three games left in the season to showcase Cousins, turn him into trade gold, and transform the 2012 fourth-round pick into a 2014 first-rounder.

Sign a reserve safety off the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad and give him his first NFL start against the future Hall-of-Famer. (It's so simple, you wonder why nobody ever tried it before.) After Michael Thomas stepped in front of Austin Collie to intercept Brady's fourth-down pass in the end zone with two seconds left on Sunday, sealing a seesaw, 24-20 victory over the Pats, he flopped to his back and was swarmed by his new teammates.
