Griffin hurt his left ankle and was carted to the locker room with his leg in a splint. Jackson injured his left shoulder.

Cousins subbed for Griffin and completed his first 12 passes. Ryan Kerrigan had four of the Redskins' 10 sacks, and Washington's defense didn't allow Jacksonville past midfield until the final two minutes of the first half.

Washington outgained Jacksonville 449-148.

The Redskins improved to 1-1. The Jaguars are 0-2 for the third consecutive season.
