Redskins Lose To Atlanta Falcons.

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Robert Alford picked off Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and returned it 59 yards for a touchdown to give Atlanta a 25-19 overtime win at home Sunday.

The loss was particularly brutal for the Redskins and Cousins, who led the team on a last-minute drive to tie the game with a field goal and send it to overtime.

But Cousins, who had played a relatively mistake-free game, misread an out pattern while under pressure on the first overtime possession and Alford pounced, making up for a costly pass-interference penalty in the fourth quarter.

The Redskins largely limited the Falcons’ potent passing offense, but couldn’t contain running back Devonta Freeman, who rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries.

Atlanta remained unbeaten at 5-0, while Washington dropped to 2-3.
