Cousins Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. — The NFL announced Wednesday that Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s Week 10 win against the New Orleans Saints.

The honor marks Cousins’ second NFC Offensive Player of the Week award this season, joining his previous selection following the team’s Week 7 win vs. Tampa Bay. Cousins joins Art Monk (1991), Brad Johnson (1999), Santana Moss (2005) and Robert Griffin III (2012) as the only members of the Redskins to earn two NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors in a single season since the award was instituted in 1984.

Last week, Cousins completed 20-of-25 passes for 324 yards with a career-high four touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 158.3. He posted the first perfect passer rating of any NFL quarterback this season with a minimum of 20 attempts. He also became the first Redskins quarterback to pass for at least 300 yards and post a rating of at least 150.0 in a game since Pro Football Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh on Oct. 31, 1948.

Cousins has earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors in each of the team’s last two home games and has helped guide the Redskins to victories in each of the team’s last four home contests. In those four games, Cousins has completed 107-of-138 passes (77.5 percent) for 1,134 yards with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions, compiling a passer rating of 122.6.

With Cousins’ selection this week, Redskins players have won 88 NFC Player of the Week awards since the NFL started awarding weekly honors in 1984.
