i'm just happy my boys did it. today was a day i knew they were not going to let me take the top off. and jordan reed, he played his but off and he had over 100 yards and did his thing. so, we needed that. it's going to be great. this year, we made it to the playoffs. this is something that nobody believed in it us. they said we couldn't do it. and we like tennessee. and we're nfc champs in washington. baby, let's get it. appreciate you. >> ian: all right, evan, thank you very much. desean jackson and the washington redskins with a victory in philly. 38-24, the final. the stakes are high tonight in philadelphia. the redskins come through. the mazda post game show is coming up. so and the rest of our crew, ian

welcome to the mazda post game show. >> the washington redskins, fans headed up i 95 to philadelphia where they get a win on the road. deion sanders, kirk cousins, the player of the game coming up next. and there he is after the game. dan snider who drafted him in 2012 in the third round, finally pays dividends as the redskins are headed to the playoffsplayo. so, the redskins are headed to the playoffs. they are 8-7. they eliminate the eagles and the giants with this 38-24 win tonight and kirk cousins was a
big reason for this win. >> it's good to have you with us. >> looks much better over there. >> yeah yeah. comfortable seat, rich. >> kirk cousins is just doing it now ever since -- you like that game. only three interceptions. he's 6-3 and he had another 300 yard game. that gives him seven on the year. more than any redskins quarterback in the history of that great organization. they go ahead and win behind his two point passing and win this division and on to the playoffs they go. unbelievabl unbelievable. >> you would think if no way they won that game but he did. and i thought he played a spectacular game with the exception of -- i can't call it a brain far. that was a boo boo. that was more than just smell.
that was brain boo boo. going out of bounds and stopping the clock. when you lose points like that, that's a number two. that's okay. you got back, you played well and you found that man, jordan reed up the middle. i talked about this a couple of years ago before he really hit the scene and i said, man, what where you doing? you're supposed to be baddest man in the league and now he's showing what i knew i saw back then. just a great day by jordan reed. and two touchdowns. but by all of their receivers, pierre setting up for eight. you know they played high over the top and not let desean jackson get the big play. >> ian: a >> some of them came off of miscues. >> trent: and kirk cousins is
going to be on your shoulders. he shoaledered that. the offensive came out early. and from then on, they started to implode. turning the football over. fumbling the football. dropping passes. a lot of things happen in the game, in the game where you win or you go home. chip kelly 's offense, they just were not sharp. missing wide open passes. there were times a guy we considered very accurate in sam bradford, when he was not precered, you cannot miss throws to guys like this. you can't miss these throws. these are balls that you have to complete when you starting quarterback in the national football league and i just can't understand how he missed these throws. it baffle me in this game at this magnitude but the fumbles, missed passes, throws it was a lot. i defense played well
enough to keep them in the game that if they had scored and not had the turnovers, they could have won this game. >> and sluggo, slam and go, just wide open in the end zone. it really did. i don't know what i thought going in. but i tell you what when washington scored 23 points and philadelphia came -- did what we were talk about earlier. they hand the ball to demarco had m murray. he threw a couple of passes over the middle and talts that's when he missed the slug so. and you were trying to pitch to demarco. >> the carelessness with the football. -- >> cousins did a good job of protecting the football and he's headed to the set right now. there he is.
the redskins heading to the mauve. kirk cousins leads the tammy to the nfc east town. i'm deborah. happy saturday night. the redskins quarterback shined in philly tonight, toughing for a touchdown pass. we have team we have team coverage begin right here with kristin burrs set. >> it was fun. it was a great game. you never know what is going to happen with the division rivals. you throw everything outs the window. late present for the redskins. win, they are in the playoffs for the first time in three years. a place that nobody thoughts they would be at at this point. kirk cousins was 0-for-4 in prime time game but tonight,
like they did all season, they had the monkey off their back. big night for tight end jordan reid, two touchdowns, 7 catches. did he sean shack-on playing his former team. he is loving it. he is telling them to be quiet. hall got a late present. he was not on santa's naughty list. sam bradford fumble, hall recovers. takes it 17 yards for the score. let's get right back out to financial field. we have more on tonight's big win.
>> lots of happy fans, you heard people screaming "you like that", "you like that". >> we have a crew in the locker room talking to players. we'll stand right ohere, hopin we get kirk cousins as soon as he walks off talking to nfl networks, we'll hope to get him. >> kirk cousins is ten yards away from becoming the third after redskins quarterback to throw for 4000 yards in a single season. that's his third 300-yard game as well. the team will -- at 2:25 this morning, they are coming and fans, if you want to come, welcome to the party. welcome back.
>> let's go straight to the podium because i hear that deshawn jackson is speaking. let's hear about him. >> that's a great feeling. that's something that we have been waiting all year. >> kirk is developing. this is the first otherthat he is as a quarterback. this year, he was able to prepare, give them reps as the first team. you know, he is doing what you asked of him, asking a starting quarterback to do in this league, get the team where he needs to get to and at the same time, we are able to get the ball down the field. we are taking advantage of what defense is giving us. if they take the deep ball away, that's when you have jordan reid who makes awesome catches underneath. he gets some big yards aft catch. , too. you know, he is big. he has done a great job this
year. [question inaudible] . >> yeah. you know, really, when i started my career here in philly, eye done some special things. i felt, you know, in between the lines out there, you know, i put in a lot of hard work, a lot of success. i had the city behind me. starting and hearing boos from the crowd and fans, you know, that was not my decision to leave, you know. chip kelly released me. that part is frustrating, you know. does not get any better. get better than coming here and winning and -- his a coach and made the stition and i
