He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Cousins added seven rushing yards on three carries.
Analysis: Cousins came through in crunch time, engineering a long drive he capped with an 11-yard scoring strike to Ryan Grant with 1:49 left that snapped a 20-20 tie. He's still averaging a pedestrian 6.3 yards per pass attempt through the first two weeks, well below his rates in each of the previous two seasons. Though still a viable option in two-QB fantasy leagues, the potential free agent may be best suited for the bench for next week's showdown with the Raiders.

The Pro Bowl quarterback will instead play under the $23.94 million tender before becoming a free agent in 2018.
Analysis: Cousins will play under the tag for a second straight season, though it's unlikely the Redskins would franchise him again in 2018 at the cumbersome cost of $34.7 million. The 28-year-old has publicly stated he would be open to renewing contract discussions following the upcoming season. After throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns in his first full season as a starter in 2015, Cousins set a franchise record with 4,917 yards this past campaign.

Analysis: Before being tagged, Cousins had reportedly expressed interested in a reunion with former Redskins offensive coordinator and new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. Cousins is entering his sixth NFL season after throwing for 12,113 yards, 72 touchdowns and 42 interceptions in five previous seasons with Washington.
