    • Cousins Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

      For Immediate Release
      October 28, 2015


      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s Week 7 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

      Cousins becomes the first member of the Redskins to win Offensive Player of the Week honors since running back Alfred Morris in Week 17 of the 2012 season. The honor marks the 16th selection by 11 different Redskins quarterbacks since 1984 and the first by a Redskins quarterback since Robert Griffin III in Week 11 of the 2012 season.

      Last week, Cousins helped the Redskins record their largest comeback in franchise history, overcoming a 24-0 deficit to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-30. He completed 33-of-40 passes for 317 yards with three passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown and no interceptions.

      The comeback victory was Cousins’ second in October, as he became the first NFL quarterback to throw a game-winning touchdown pass with less than 30 seconds remaining twice in a single month since Drew Bledsoe in December 2005, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

      Redskins players have won 87 Player of the Week awards, including 38 NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, since the NFL started awarding weekly honors in 1984.
