    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Struggles in loss to Panthers

    Cousins comopleted 22 of 30 passes for 207 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He also lost a pair of fumbles and gained four yards on his only carry of the game. The 27-year-old started off strong by launching a 56-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the first quarter, but the stout Panthers defense came to life and kept the Redskins' offense off the board for the rest of the day. The three turnovers matched a season-high for Cousins, who had done well in that regard with just two in the previous three games. Cousins' fantasy outputs can vary significantly from week to week, but he will have the chance to bounce back against a beatable Giants secondary next week.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Earns perfect QB rating in rout of Saints

    Cousins completed 20 of 25 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns Sunday against the Saints, earning a perfect 158.3 quarterback rating. Facing off against one of the league's worst pass defenses, Cousins absolutely shredded the Saints, connecting with nine different players and throwing touchdown passes to tight end Jordan Reed (two), running back Matt Jones and wide receiver Jamison Crowder. It was just his second game all season with more than one touchdown pass, though he's been particularly good of late, averaging 286 yards per game over the last three and scoring nine touchdowns over that span (including one rushing score). However, things should get much tougher in Week 11, as the Redskins travel to Carolina to take on a Panthers defense that is allowing only 5.5 YPA this season, second-best in the league.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: 217 yards in loss

    Cousins completed 22-of-40 passes for 217 yards, with one touchdown and one interception Sunday against the Patriots. While Cousins wasn't that accurate Sunday, he didn't get much help from his receivers, who dropped seven passes. He ultimately connected with seven different players, with Pierre Garcon leading with way with 70 receiving yards. The return of wideout DeSean Jackson didn't help much, as he caught just three passes on six targets for 15 yards. Cousins' single touchdown Sunday was his seventh game out of eight this season without multiple scores, though he's got a good Week 10 matchup to improve, as the Redskins will face off against a Saints defense that has allowed a league-high 24 passing touchdowns.

    Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has strong showing in dramatic victory

    Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was excellent against the Buccaneers on Sunday, completing 33 of 40 tosses for 317 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran three times for 15 yards and a touchdown in Washington's dramatic come from behind victory. Down 24-0 before the half, the fourth-year signal caller plunged into the end zone to get the comeback started and proceeded to lead the 'Skins to four second half scores, including the go-ahead touchdown with 24 seconds remaining. It was easily Cousins' best all-around game of the season, and he likely solidified his hold on the starting job for the time being, as he entered the game with a 6:8 TD:INT ratio. Washington will face the Patriots on the road after their bye in Week 8.

    Redskins QB Kirk Cousins picked off twice in loss

    Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 25 of 43 passes for 196 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Jets. Cousins started off well, opening the scoring with a short scoring strike to Pierre Garcon in the first quarter, but he struggled for much of the second half, when he strangely didn't throw a single pass to the same target. Cousins has now thrown for under 220 yards in back-to-back weeks and has failed to throw for multiple scores in every game this season. Up next is a Week 7 home game against the Buccaneers.

    Redskins QB Kirk Cousins throws game-ending pick six

    Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 32 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Falcons, but he was picked off twice, including a game-ending interception returned for a touchdown in overtime. Cousins connected with six different receivers, throwing his touchdown to tight end Derek Carrier, and while he was able to lead the team to a game-tying field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter, his interception in overtime was extremely costly. Receiver Ryan Grant slipped on the play, though Cousins' pass didn't appear to be heading for a completion anyway. Cousins has been up-and-down this season, though he hasn't passed for multiple touchdowns in a game yet, and he'll have a tough time breaking that streak in Week 6 against the Jets, who are off in Week 5.

    Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has big game in Week 4 win over Eagles

    Redskins quarter back Kirk Cousins completed 31 of 46 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Eagles. He also scored on a one-yard touchdown plunge on his only carry of the game. A strong showing for the fourth-year signal caller, who has thrown for over 600 yards on 95 attempts in the last two games. Cousins' fantasy value stands to benefit if the Redskins continue their pass-heavy ways, especially if he can continue to limit the turnovers (four in four games). Washington could be forced to throw early and often next week, when they visit the high-scoring Falcons.

    Redskins QB throws two interceptions in Week 3 loss to Giants

    Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 49 passes for 316 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions, in Thursday's 32-21 loss to the Giants. Cousins settled down following an ugly first quarter, though his stat line was still largely produced in garbage time. He was able to move the ball with an onslaught of short passes, but only after his early struggles allowed the Giants to take a healthy lead. According to Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said after the game that the team doesn't have a quarterback controversy, which strongly suggests Cousins will start against the Eagles in Week 4.

    Redskins QB Kirk Cousins shines in win over Rams

    Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 23 of 27 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Rams. The Redskins' running game was dominant Sunday, as Matt Jones and Alfred Morris combined for 182 rushing yards and two touchdowns (most came from Jones, who had 19 carries for 123 yards and both scores). As a result, Cousins was simply able to manage the offense, as he connected with eight different receivers, throwing his lone touchdown to wideout Pierre Garcon, while tight end Jordan Reed led the team with 82 receiving yards. Up next is a quick turnaround Thursday against the Giants, who have allowed 719 passing yards and four passing touchdowns through the first two games of the season.
