Falcons hold off fumble-prone Redskins 27-26

Updated: Sunday, December 15 2013, 08:05 PM EST

ATLANTA (AP) -- Desmond Trufant deflected Kirk Cousins' pass on a potential winning 2-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining, and the Atlanta Falcons edged the Washington Redskins 27-26 on Sunday.


The Falcons scored 20 points off seven Washington turnovers. The Redskins tied a team record with five lost fumbles.


Cousins passed for 381 yards and three touchdowns but had three turnovers in his first start of the season after coach Mike Shanahan decided to bench Robert Griffin III. Griffin watched from the sideline.


Cousins' touchdown pass to Santana Moss gave Washington a chance to force overtime by kicking the extra point. Instead, Cousins' attempted go-ahead 2-point pass for Pierre Garcon was deflected by Trufant.


Steven Jackson ran for two touchdowns for Atlanta.


Alfred Morris had 98 yards rushing but lost two fumbles for Washington.
