The Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions rebounded from early-season missteps to regain their footing in a big way of late. The Redskins vie for their fifth consecutive victory on Sunday when they visit the Detroit Lions, who have won two in a row to even their record.

Cousins will look to Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder to exploit Detroit’s 23rd-ranked pass defense, although fellow wideout DeSean Jackson’s involvement in Sunday’s game is in question. Jackson missed practice on both Wednesday and Thursday with a sore shoulder, sustained in the second half against the Eagles.

Wide receiver Marvin Jones has cooled down from his hot start, but still found the end zone in back-to-back weeks despite reeling in just six total receptions for 47 yards. The 26-year-old is expected to see a healthy dose of cornerback Josh Norman on Sunday, so perhaps Stafford will shift his focus toward veteran Anquan Boldin or Golden Tate. The 36-year-old Boldin collected his third touchdown this season last Sunday and has eight scores in his last five encounters with Washington while Tate erupted after a sputtering start to haul in eight catches for 165 yards and a touchdown versus Philadelphia last week.

Washington RB Matt Jones has sandwiched two strong outings around a stinker, highlighted by rushing for a career-high 135 yards and a touchdown against Philadelphia.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah has 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in his last eight home games and two sacks and a forced fumble in his last encounter with the Redskins.

Washington LB Su’a Cravens (concussion) was a full participant in practice on Thursday, but is expected to visit an independent doctor prior to being cleared to face Detroit.
