- Replacing RG3, quarterback Kirk Cousins looked pretty good with 250 yards and a touchdown. There was some chatter that Cousins looked better than RG3 before the season anyway but this may lend credence. He’s a deep roster stash at this point.
- Replacing Jordan Reed at tight end, Niles Paul looked great with eight catches for 99 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. In coach Jay Gruden’s pass happy offense, Paul could see some good days. He’ll have to do it a lot more to pass Reed on the depth chart.
- Perhaps performing sooner than expected, receiver Allen Robinson led the team in receptions, yards, and targets with four catches on 75 yards. Robinson was never expected to contribute this early so his stock may go up sooner than expected.
