Cousins completed 20 of 37 pass attempts for 158 yards and three interceptions during Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants. He also scored a 12-yard touchdown on his lone carry of the game.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins just 54 percent of his passes and threw three interceptions for the first time this season, including one in his own end on the first possession that led to a Giants touchdown. He was enjoying a tremendous campaign as recently as Wee 12 but finished with just two games over 200 passing yards and an 8:8 touchdown-turnover ratio over his final five contests. While he enjoyed a career year in 2016, Cousins regressed dramatically in terms of yardage this season and slightly so in terms of turnovers. He'll now become a free agent once again, and it remains to be seen if Washington wishes to sign him to a big contract, apply the franchise tag once again or explore other options under center.

Cousins completed 19 of 37 pass attempts for 299 yards, three touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Broncos. He also carried five times for eight yards in the 27-11 win.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins completed just over half of his passes on the day, but a big second half helped him to his highest yardage total since Week 11. With the score still close, he completed a 48-yard touchdown pass to Josh Doctson before putting the game away with a 31-yard strike to Vernon Davis. Cousins had struggled a bit over his previous four games, averaging just 210 yards passing with seven touchdowns compared to five turnovers. He produced one of his finest performances of the season in this one, however, and will look to finish strong against a hapless Giants team next week.

Cousins completed 18 of 26 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-15 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was held below 200 passing yards for the second consecutive week after topping that mark in all but one of his first 12 games this season. That decline in effectiveness has been the result of injury issues across Washington's offense rather than a decline in Cousins' own level, but that distinction isn't much consolation to his fantasy owners. Next week's game against the Broncos could be the pending free agent's final home tilt in a Redskins uniform.

Cousins completed 15 of 27 passes for 151 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Chargers. He also rushed twice for eight yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was only brought down twice by the Chargers' ferocious pass rush, but he was pressured plenty and generated his lowest passing yardage total of the season in the process. The six-year veteran's 55.6 percent completion rate was also his lowest of the season, as was the 68.6 rating he finished the contest with. The Redskins are essentially without postseason hope at 5-8, but Cousins will try to help them break a two-game losing streak against the Cardinals in Week 15.

Cousins completed 26 of 37 passes for 251 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 38-14 loss to the Cowboys. He also gained six yards on three rushes and fumbled twice, losing one.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was harassed in the pocket throughout the night, getting brought down on four occasions and taking hits on nine occasions overall. The six-year veteran did connect with Ryan Grant and Josh Doctson on touchdowns of 20 and 14 yards in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. However, he also fired a pair of costly interceptions, short-circuiting a potential scoring drive in the first quarter by finding the Cowboys' Jeff Heath on a pass intended for Jamison Crowder, and then seeing a late fourth-quarter throw get deflected and land in the hands of Anthony Brown. Cousins has now thrown for multiple touchdowns in three straight games, while his 70.3 percent completion rate on the night was his best since Week 7. He'll look to produce his first 300-yard performance since Week 11 when the Redskins tangle with the Chargers in Week 14.

Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242-yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Thursday's Thanksgiving win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was involved in every touchdown during the game, as the Giants' lone score occurred on pick-six of the quarterback in the third-quarter. He was relatively efficient outside of the interception on a night where offense was hard to come by. The 29-year-old has now thrown multiple touchdowns in consecutive weeks, and will try to string it to three for the first time this season when the Redskins take on the Cowboys in Week 13.

Cousins completed 22 of 32 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns without an interception while rushing three times for 11 yards in Sunday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins exited briefly in the third quarter after taking a hit to the head on the same play that saw running back Chris Thompson break his fibula, but the quarterback was able to return unlike his backfield mate. While Cousins will surely miss a receiving back that's provided over 500 yards and four touchdowns through the air, he still has the weapons to succeed in Washington's pass-heavy offense. Cousins has made owners happy of late with over 320 passing yards in consecutive games, giving him five outings with over 300 yards this season.

Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for 327 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's 38-30 loss to the Vikings. He added five yards and two touchdowns on four carries.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was held to one or fewer passing touchdowns for the fifth time in nine games in 2017, but scored his second and third rushing touchdowns of the season, bringing his total to 12 since taking over as Washington's starter in 2015. Cousins is putting together another nice statistical season, but he's been a little uneven while working with a receiving corps featuring some new faces. He connected on 10 of his 14 touchdown passes for the season during a four-game stretch from Weeks 3 through Week 7, putting together a QB rating of 119.7. During the five games on either side of that stretch, he's completed just four touchdown passes with a more pedestrian 83.5 QB rating. Cousins takes on a red-hot Saints squad next week.

Cousins completed 21 of 31 pass attempts for 247 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 17-14 win over Seattle. He also added four yards on three rushes and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first game this season that Cousins didn't throw for a touchdown. Facing an elite defense on the road with a depleted receiving corps and offensive line, a down game was perhaps to be expected. He was also sacked six times, including once for a safety. The 29-year-old returns home to face another stiff test against Minnesota in Week 10.

Cousins likely will be directing an injury-marred Washington offense Sunday in Seattle, ESPN.com's Field Yates reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Seattle defense has injury issues of its own, but they don't quite compare to Washington's. The Redskins have three o-line starters listed as doubtful or out, with another listed as questionable. Top tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) has also been ruled out, while Jamison Crowder (hamstring) seems to fall on the wrong side of questionable. Cousins figures to throw early and often, but efficiency will be a tall task. He'll need big games from Chris Thompson and Vernon Davis, not to mention some form of production from a struggling group of wideouts.
