04:09 PM ET 12.13 | The Washington Redskins are set to roll out Kirk Cousins as their starting quarterback in Week 15 and he will have a favorable matchup for his first start of the season. When Cousins takes the field to take on the Atlanta Falcons secondary, he will be staring at three rookie defensive backs across the field. Atlanta has been starting 2013 first-round pick Desmond Trufant at one of the cornerback positions, while fellow rookie Robert Alford has replaced veteran Asante Samuel on the other side. While that could be appetizing in itself, the Falcons will be without safety Thomas DeCoud on Sunday, which opens the door for seventh-round pick Zeke Motta out of Notre Dame to take his place in the starting lineup. For a man that will be coming in to the game with the pressure of replacing Robert Griffin III, this is a great opportunity for Cousins to get the crowd behind him over the final three games of the season.

I guess my Altlanta-Houston Super Bowl prediction won't come to fruition.

RGIII's all upset about this... but isn't Atlanta the team that knocked him out cold last year?

Then again I'm sure he doesn't remember the hit.

Or the game.

And possibly half the weeks prior to and after.

Atlanta can make any QB look like a star.
