Cousins win NFC Player of the Month

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for his weeks of superb play in November.

Cousins wins NFC awardIn three games — wins over the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers and a loss to the Dallas Cowboys — Cousins completed 84 of 116 passes for 1086 yards and eight touchdowns. He committed no turnovers and posted a passer rating of at least 110 in each game. In addition, Cousins led the NFL in passing yards per game during November.

This is the second time Cousins has won this award, but the first time this season. He last won the award for his play in December 2015, when he led the Redskins to an improbable month-long run to the NFC East division title.

Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins won NFC Special Teams Player of the Month earlier this season for his kicking in September. Cousins joins former Redskins OLB Wilbur Marshall as the only two players in franchise history to win the Player of the Month award twice. Marshall won NFC Defensive Player of the Month in October 1991 and October 1992.
