Red zone of­fense ex­cels

The Washington Post Sunday - - REDSKINS TRAINING CAMP -

Wash­ing­ton’s first-team of­fense had one of its bet­ter days, par­tic­u­larly in the red zone, where touch­downs had been scarce.

Cousins com­pleted a back shoul­der fade to Josh Doct­son, who out­leaped cor­ner­back Quin­ton Dun­bar for an eight-yard touch­down. Cousins later hit Derek Car­rier in stride with a five-yard touch­down pass along the right side­line.

Cousins also scored on a draw play from five yards out and nearly had another touch­down pass when he went for Doct­son on a slant from five yards out only to see Dun­bar make a great play on the ball to break up the pass at the goal line.

A strike to Davis may have scored from 13 yards out, but Cravens tagged the tight end at the 5, and the ref­er­ees work­ing prac­tice blew their whis­tles even though Davis trot­ted into the end zone.

The in­crease in pro­duc­tiv­ity was a good sign for the Red­skins and Cousins, who had only 14 touch­down passes on 83 at­tempts in­side the 20-yard line and had strug­gled in this area thus far in camp.
