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.

REDSKINS cornerback DeAngelo Hall knew who to call Sunday night, just hours after he had suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury against the Eagles: Lakers star Kobe Bryant. "He was probably the most notable guy that I remember having an Achilles' injury and coming back," said Hall, who suffered a torn left Achilles' in the third quarter. "He said the same thing our trainers have. Just be patient with it. It's going to feel like you can push. It's going to feel like you can do some things.

ASHBURN, Va. - For better or worse, Kirk Cousins is the Washington Redskins quarterback for the near future. Whether that is better or worse for the Eagles Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field depends on who you ask. It became the hottest debate among Washington football fans last week when Robert Griffin III exited in the first quarter of a game against Jacksonville on Sunday with a dislocated left ankle. Cousins made an auspicious entrance by throwing his first pass for a 20-yard touchdown.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State collected two trophies and a spot in the first Big Ten championship game in one afternoon. Kirk Cousins threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns in just over a half, leading the 12th-ranked Spartans to a 55-3 victory over Indiana on Saturday. A few minutes after the game concluded, Michigan finished off a victory over Nebraska, locking the Spartans into the first Big Ten championship game. Michigan State (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) is in the title game because of its 28-14 win over Michigan on Oct. 15. MSU earned the Old Brass Spittoon for beating the Hoosiers, who finished 1-10 overall and 0-7 in the conference.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State's Keith Nichol caught a 44-yard Hail Mary on the game's final play Saturday night for a tie-breaking touchdown that gave the No. 15 Spartans a stunning 37-31 win over No. 4 Wisconsin. With the game tied and 4 seconds left, Kirk Cousins rolled out to his right and threw one last pass. The ball went into the end zone but caromed off Michigan State receiver B.J. Cunningham's face mask back to Nichol, who caught it just outside the end zone and struggled for the goal line.

TAMPA, Fla. - Down a touchdown to Georgia with less than 2 minutes remaining and a long way to go, Kirk Cousins found a way to give Michigan State a parting gift. A cornerstone of coach Mark Dantonio's rebuilding project, Cousins led a late rally in the fourth quarter and Dan Conroy kicked a 28-yard field goal in the third overtime to lift the 12th-ranked Spartans over the No. 18 Bulldogs, 33-30, yesterday in the Outback Bowl. Michigan State (11-3) ended a five-game bowl losing streak with its first postseason win since beating Fresno State in the 2001 Silicon Valley Bowl.

Looks like the Miami Dolphins have found the secret to stopping New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. 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.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Jerel Worthy and his Michigan State teammates charged across the field, holding four fingers in the air while celebrating another sweet victory over their biggest rival. "A clean sweep!" Worthy yelled. In his four years with the Spartans, Worthy has never lost to Michigan. He and the rest of Michigan State's defensive line helped extend that run Saturday, shutting down Denard Robinson and the 11th-ranked Wolverines in a 28-14 victory. The 23d-ranked Spartans have won four straight against Michigan for the first time since 1959-62, equaling Michigan State's longest streak in the series.

THE EAGLES HAVE seen both sides of the spectrum regarding Robert Griffin III. Two seasons ago, during the quarterback's dynamite rookie season, his Redskins beat the Eagles twice, RGIII in the process tossing six touchdowns to one interception and, in the teams' first meeting, scrambling for 84 yards. Last year the Eagles returned the favor by sweeping Washington. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner threw four touchdowns to three interceptions but completed only 56 percent of his passes over the two meetings.

'WE'VE GOT to get it fixed," Bill Davis said after the St. Louis Rams game 3 weeks ago and after the Washington Redskins game 2 weeks before that. If you go back to the start of last season, you likely will find a few more declarations identical to that, which, of course, leads to two obvious questions after the Eagles' first shutout victory since 1996, and first of the Bill Davis/Chip Kelly era. Namely, is it fixed? And if so, what got fixed? "I think we're growing," the Eagles defensive coordinator said yesterday.

Two freshmen quarterbacks enrolled at Michigan State in 2007: Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins. Foles was a big, strong-armed Texan who was a late addition to the Spartans' class. Cousins was a brainy in-state recruit who was not considered a top prospect. On Sunday, Foles will quarterback the Eagles and Cousins will start for the Washington Redskins. Eight years after spending a season together in East Lansing, Mich., and three years after they were both on the Eagles' radar in a loaded quarterback draft class, Foles and Cousins will compete against each other.

THIS SUNDAY'S matchup between the Eagles and the Washington Redskins was not on anyone's mind 7 years ago, when quarterbacks Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins spent their freshman seasons buried far beneath starter Brian Hoyer on the Michigan State depth chart. Foles got into one game, completed five of eight passes. Cousins redshirted. At the end of the year, Foles transferred to Arizona. Cousins became the Spartans' starter in 2009 and was drafted by the Washington Redskins in 2012, in the fourth round, 102nd overall - 14 slots behind Foles, who was taken in the third round by the Eagles.

After a week the NFL would love to forget, things were ugly once the players took to the field. Jamaal Charles sprained an ankle after accumulating just 12 total yards. Robert Griffin III suffered a nasty dislocated ankle just before teammate DeSean Jackson was knocked out with a shoulder injury. The Dolphins lost new starting running back Knowshon Moreno (dislocated elbow), reportedly for at least a month, on his first carry. A.J. Green was bounced by a strained foot before he could register a catch.

It's no surprise that the owners with Jamaal Charles on their teams made the semifinals in all three of my fantasy leagues. The Chiefs' workhorse has been a potent scoring machine all season, reaching the end zone in all but three games and tallying at least 100 total yards in all but one. Now you can bet your skid-marked Raiders fanny that all three of Charles' fantasy squads are heading for a title match next weekend, thanks to Charles' extraordinary...
