The honor is Cousins' first of the season and the third of his career, joining selections in Weeks 7 and 10 of the 2015 season. He joins wide receiver Art Monk (five), quarterback Mark Rypien (four) and wide receiver Santana Moss (three) as the only players in team history to earn three career NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards since the honor's inception in 1984.
Last week, Cousins completed 21-of-30 passes for 375 yards, tied his season-high with three touchdown passes and threw no interceptions in a 42-24 win on Sunday Night Football. He recorded his team-record 17th career 300-yard passing game and finished the game with a season-high 145.8 passer rating.
