Last week wasn’t a great one for Kirk Cousins.
He threw a pair of interceptions in the team’s 34-20 loss to the Jets, dropping the team’s record to 0-10 in games that featured multiple Cousins interceptions, and the question of his job security was posed to Redskins coach Jay Gruden several times. Gruden stuck with Cousins and it paid off in the second half on Sunday.
Cousins threw three touchdown passes after halftime and the Redskins came back from 24-0 down in the first half to beat the Buccaneers 31-30 in front of a home crowd that made their change of opinion in Cousins known over the course of the game. After it was over, Cousins had a question for those who had been questioning him in the days leading up to the game.
“I mean, I just get really fired up after we win, that’s all it is, just fired up,” Cousins said, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. “I just said it to, I think it was Tarik [El-Bashir] in there from Comcast I was saying it to. Just fired up, fired up.”
The loud finish to the game should make for a quieter week on the quarterback front in Washington.
