Draft Scout Kirk Cousins News
10/15/17 - QB Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score on a read option as the Washington Redskins defeated the San Francisco 49ers 26-24 on Sunday at FedEx Field. After squandering all of a 17-0 lead, the Redskins scored nine fourth-quarter points on a field goal and a 7-yard run off a read-option by Cousins with 3:34 remaining. "It's always going to be a part of our offense because it gives defenses something to think about," Cousins said of his former offensive coordinator. "Kyle told me when he left, he said, 'I've learned after working with Robert (Griffin III) that this is a really valuable play no matter who the quarterback is. ...' When (head coach) Jay (Gruden) arrived we kept it and valued it. ... You've just got pick your spots, be smart with it, call it at the right time and you can get some yards." Cousins finished 25 of 37 for 330 yards and one interception.
10/03/17 - QB Kirk Cousins was 14 of 24 for 215 yards and two scores, and he also led the team with 38 rushing yards Monday. "When teams play man coverage, that's when you really have an opportunity to run because guys are chasing their man and they don't have eyes on you," Cousins said. "They did a good job of taking guys away and doubling some people, and really all I had was to run, and that's an area of my game that I can use more, I think."
09/25/17 - QB Kirk Cousins passed for 365 yards and three touchdowns, and the Redskins posted a convincing 27-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday night.
Cousins, after struggling in the first two games, shined, completing 25 of 30 passes without an interception. All without his starting running back (Rob Kelley) and tight end (Jordan Reed.).
With his first-quarter scoring pass to RB Chris Thompson, Cousins became the sixth Redskins quarterback to throw at least 75 touchdown passes with the team.
09/18/17 - QB Kirk Cousins' 11-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Ryan Grant with 1:49 remaining lifted the Washington Redskins to a 27-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
On the winning touchdown, Cousins lofted the ball to Grant who was cutting left across the end zone. Grant made the catch just a few feet within the field of play, stopped and, for the benefit of replay cameras, demonstratively stomped both feet in bounds.
The Cousins-to-Grant touchdown pass finished an impressive fourth-quarter drive by the Redskins, who went 70 yards on 10 plays that ate up 5:27.
Cousins' touchdown pass to Grant was his 19th consecutive touchdown pass in an away game, a club record.
Cousins completed 18 of 27 passes for 179 yards with no interceptions. Cousins threw for 240 yards and a touchdown last week against the Eagles.
Washington head coach Jay Gruden said Cousins perhaps missed an open receiver here or there but overall was pleased with his quarterback's play, especially the touchdown pass to Grant.
"Huge throw at the end of the game," Gruden said. "Kirk managed the game, managed the clock. Got us in the right runs and pretty good job overall."
09/10/17 - QB Kirk Cousins finished 23 of 40 for 240 yards with one touchdown pass to go with one interception and two lost fumbles. He was sacked four times but tied with running back Rob Kelley for the team rushing lead with 30 yards.
