Chris Thompson’s, Jamison Crowder’s Struggles Blamed On Time Of Possession

This article first appeared on

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden attributed the lack of involvement from running back Chris Thompson and wide receiver Jamison Crowder to the fact that the Redskins only possessed the ball for 23 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Chiefs. The Chiefs meanwhile, held the ball for 37 minutes, including over 22 of 30 minutes in the second half. With only 24 Kirk Cousins pass attempts to go around, it’s easy to see how Thompson and Crowder got lost in the shuffle. Cousins was, nevertheless, efficient, putting his team in position to win the game on an apparent TD pass to Josh Doctson in the game’s final minute, but Doctson couldn’t maintain possession as he hit the turf.
