Cousins completed 41-of-53 passes for 449 yards, his second highest total of the season, and three touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

With the Redskins trailing nearly the entirety of the game, Cousins had plenty of opportunity to put in work through the air Thursday. He hooked up with tight end Jordan Reed for two of his touchdowns, and connected with the speedy DeSean Jackson for a 67 yard bomb as well. The 28-year-old has now thrown for 824 yards and six touchdowns in back-to-back prime time performances.

Cousins completed 21 of 30 pass attempts for 375 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in Sunday's 42-24 victory over the Packers. He added four yards on four carries.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins put together perhaps his finest statistical outing of the season, registering his second-highest yardage output while managing three touchdowns and no turnovers for the first time. He is up to 17 touchdowns compared to 7 interceptions this season and has emerged as a top fantasy option after throwing for at least 296 yards six times in 10 tries. Cousins will look to carry this momentum forward into the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Cowboys.

Cousins connected on 22 of 33 pass attempts for 262 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins spread the ball around to seven different receivers and recorded just his second game of the season with multiple touchdown passes and no interceptions. He is among the league leaders in passing yards with an average mark of 301.7 and has accounted for multiple touchdowns in six of his last seven games. Cousins could be in for another productive outing next week against a Packers defense that has allowed 37 points per game over the last three.

Cousins connected on 38 of 56 pass attempts for a season-high 458 yards, while adding two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's tie with the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

A season-high in passing yards wasn't enough to propel Washington to a win, as the game ended in a Cousins' Hail Mary attempt that didn't even stay in the field of play. The quarterback connected with Jordan Reed late in the third quarter from 25-yards out to bring the Redskins within three points of Bengals. He then found Jamison Crowder on a 33-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth to give the Redskins the lead. Cousins and the Redskins now head into their bye week, giving the quarterback some extra time to rest up and prepare for a Week 10 tilt with the Vikings and their league-leading defense.

Cousins connected on 30 of 39 pass attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown and added 19 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He fumbled twice during the contest, losing one.

EDGE Analysis

After keeping quiet for much of the game, Cousins was an Anquan Boldin touchdown away of leading a Washington comeback. The passer led Washington to its first touchdown of the game midway through the fourth quarter with a one-yard dump off to Rob Kelley and then followed up with a 19-yard keep on a zone read for Washington's second score - giving them the lead with just moments left. Running the ball was an underrated component of Cousins' game last season - ranking among the top quarterbacks with five rushing scores. Cousins is on pace for six fewer touchdown passes than last year, but the pace drops to nine off when you factor in rushing - illustrating why Cousins is not performing as well this season from a fantasy perspective despite an uptick in yardage.

Cousins completed 18 of 34 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins connected with Jamison Crowder and Vernon Davis for first-half touchdowns, and was able to overcome a 64-yard pick-six by Malcolm Jenkins en route to a fourth consecutive victory. Cousins threw for multiple scores for the third time in 2016, and he seemed to benefit from a running game that racked up 230 yards on the ground. With a 8:3 TD:INT ratio during the current winning streak, Cousins will look to keep it rolling against a Lions secondary that was torched by the lowly Rams this week.

Cousins completed 29 of 41 pass attempts for 260 yards, a touchdown and an interception during Sunday's 16-10 win over the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins' only touchdown pass of the day came on a 21-yard connection with Pierre Garcon as part of a 10-point third quarter that ultimately decided the game. He was unable to throw for multiple scores for the first time since Week 3, but he tasted victory for the third straight game. Cousins will look to make it four straight in Week 6 versus a sound Eagles defensive unit.

Cousins threw for 183 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while completing 21 of 27 passes Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins saw a massive drop-off in yardage after throwing for at least 296 in each of his first three games. Even so, the fifth-year quarterback managed to exploit a vulnerable Browns secondary for three touchdowns in a 31-20 win. He hooked up with tight end Jordan Reed for a pair of scores in the red zone, re-establishing a strong connection that had failed to produce a single touchdown coming in.

Cousins completed 21 of 35 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 29-27 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants took a 21-9 lead in the second quarter, but Cousins hit for long touchdowns to DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder in the second and third quarters, respectively, to start a comeback that resulted in a victory. He was more decisive Sunday, but he did not have a particularly high completion percentage once again. It was, however, an improved performance, and Cousins will have the opportunity to build off of it in Week 4 versus the Browns.

Cousins completed 28 of 46 passes for 364 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. He added 20 rushing yards on two carries.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was productive Sunday and moved the ball effectively, but he committed a monumental error at the end of the third quarter when he was picked off in the end zone after throwing into quadruple coverage. He was also part of a botched snap that cost the Redskins a 10-second runoff on the final drive of the game, leaving just eight seconds off the clock, and he launched the ensuing Hail Mary out of the end zone to conclude the game. Cousins has piled up 695 yards through the air through two games, but his 1:3 touchdown:turnover rate and the crucial mistakes have left some things to be desired. He will look to turn things around in Week 3 versus the Giants.
