The Redskins trailed the Cowboys by a touchdown, and Kirk Cousins had the ball in his hands with less than a minute to play. 30 seconds later, Byron Jones intercepted Cousins, ran the ball back for a touchdown, and the game was lost.
It marked the second straight loss for the Redskins with a back-breaking late interception from Cousins, and the third straight loss with a similar scenario.
Coincidence or not, former Redskins QB Robert Griffin III took to Twitter after the loss and started to talk about his fall from grace in Washington.
While most people equate the end of the RG3 era with the Redskins as a combination of the volatile relationship with Mike Shanahan, injuries, and internal discord, Griffin's account seemed to put a lot of the blame on head coach Jay Gruden and Cousins.

Griffin's tweets tell the tale of a player that was schemed out of the offense. The recollection doesn't quite seem right.
In 2014, his first year with the Redskins, Gruden started RG3 until he was hurt. And then Gruden went to Cousins, who did not play well and was benched for Colt McCoy. In fact, in 2014, it seemed like McCoy was Gruden's most trusted QB.
Not the way Griffin remembers things.
