ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins will try to rebound from a rough season opener against one of the coaches who knows him best.

Cousins on Sunday will face former offensive coordinator Sean McVay's Los Angeles Rams as the Redskins look to avoid starting 0-2. McVay spent the past seven seasons in Washington, the past two calling the plays as Cousins set franchise records for passing yards.

McVay was so instrumental to Cousins' success that the QB signed a jersey for him with the message, "I owe you my career." McVay has the jersey displayed in his house but must now game-plan against Cousins and the Redskins.

Cousins was 20 of 43 for 240 yards with a touchdown, an interception and two fumbles in the Week 1 loss to Philadelphia. He said his and the offense's problems are easily correctable.
