Kirk Cousins    QB  Redskins

 

 

Kirk Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding four yards on three carries Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants. He was also sacked six times for a loss of 41 yards. Cousins didn’t have his best stuff on Thursday night, which was understandable given the short week. It didn’t help that the Redskins were playing without pass-catching back Chris Thompson and star tight end Jordan Reed. Cousins made lemonade out of lemons, showing a strong connection with Jamison Crowder (7-141-1) while also finding Josh Doctson for the go-ahead touchdown with under four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Cousins’ interception—which Janoris Jenkins returned for a 52-yard touchdown—wasn’t his fault as the ball deflected off Byron Marshall. The main complaint was that Cousins held onto the ball too long, which is something he’ll need to iron out for next week’s game at Dallas.

Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242-yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Thursday's 20-10 Thanksgiving win over the Giants. Cousins was involved in every touchdown during the game, as the Giants' lone score occurred on pick-six of the quarterback in the third-quarter. He was relatively efficient outside of the interception on a night where offense was hard to come by. The 29-year-old has now thrown multiple touchdowns in consecutive weeks, and will try to string it to three for the first time this season when the Redskins take on the Cowboys in Week 13.

Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for 327 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's 38-30 loss to the Vikings. He added five yards and two touchdowns on four carries. Cousins was held to one or fewer passing touchdowns for the fifth time in nine games in 2017, but scored his second and third rushing touchdowns of the season, bringing his total to 12 since taking over as Washington's starter in 2015. Cousins is putting together another nice statistical season, but he's been a little uneven while working with a receiving corps featuring some new faces. He connected on 10 of his 14 touchdown passes for the season during a four-game stretch from Weeks 3 through Week 7, putting together a QB rating of 119.7. During the five games on either side of that stretch, he's completed just four touchdown passes with a more pedestrian 83.5 QB rating. Cousins takes on a red-hot Saints squad next week.

Kirk Cousins completed 26-of-45 passes for 327 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Vikings. Cousins had a much better fantasy day than he had in reality, but was aided by the two short rushing touchdowns and stacking yardage on the second half. Cousins threw a 36-yard touchdown to Maurice Harris on the opening drive where Harris made a tremendous one-handed catch. Cousins then had an easy touchdown pass on a 4th down completion to Chris Thompson where a linebacker fell down, but made Thompson adjust to the ball towards the sideline instead of putting out in front of him. Cousins then added 1-yard and 2-yard rushing scores with Rob Kelley out of the game. Cousins continues to get the job for fantasy purposes and will be a starting option when Washington plays at New Orleans in Week 11.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Kirk Cousins to take more shots downfield. "There's a point where he’s going to have to give receivers some chances that maybe look covered, but give them a chance to make a play. That’s probably one area we can force the issue on — to give these receivers chances down the field." Cousins is completing 68 percent of his passes, but has made most of his throws on checkdowns to Chris Thompson. With multiple starters missing on the offensive line, that's unlikely to change this week. Playing with a downgraded supporting cast, Cousins could struggle in a shy-away matchup at Seattle.

Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-40 passes for 306 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles. He was sacked four times, and the interception was a horrific throw right to DB Corey Graham deep in the Redskins' territory on a play Cousins was hit by the pass rush. It essentially sealed the loss for the Redskins. But statistically, this was one of Cousins' better games of the season, as he and Jordan Reed hooked up for their first two touchdown connections of the season. Cousins has now thrown for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in three of the last four games. He'll be a QB1 next week in a home game against the Cowboys.
