In a 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at FedExField in Landover, Md., Cousins finished the afternoon completing 25-of-37 passes for 330 yards with two touchdowns and a passer rating of 102.3.

It was the 21st time that Cousins has passed for 300 yards (a franchise record) and the third consecutive game in which the Pro Bowler has posted a quarterback rating of 100 or better.

On Washington's first drive of the game, Cousins completed all four of his pass attempts including an 11-yard touchdown to second-year wide receiver Josh Doctson.

Then in the second quarter, Cousins connected with Samaje Perine on a three-yard touchdown pass on 3rd-and-1.

Cousins also ran for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, a scamper that would turn out to be the game-winning score.

"I think we did a good job as an offense," Cousins said. "I think we moved the football. There were a lot of good decisions, a lot of good plays made, a lot of third-down conversions in big moments, a lot of crucial drives where we had to churn the clock and come away with points. So, I was proud of the way our offense played. It wasn't perfect, there were a couple mistakes, but all in all we did a lot of good things."

Cousins is up against Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, although neither toppled 300 passing yards like Washington's quarterback did.
