Kirk Cousins is excited about being in a playoff race but he doesn’t have time to think about the big picture.
The Redskins are 6-7 and if they win three in a row they will win the NFC East. But Cousins can’t do anything but take the proverbial one game at a time approach. He doesn’t have time to do anything else.
“You look at what you have to do each week and it's a lot,” said Cousins. “When you start to look further down the road you get overwhelmed. I have enough to just focus on with just the Bills alone that to let my mind got through the Eagles or the Cowboys or what's at stake it just becomes too much. I'd rather just focus on the Bills and handle it one day or one week at a time. That helps me.”
Cousins seems like the focused sort anyway and it’s hard to see his mind wandering to what could be a make-or-break game against the Eagles a week from Saturday in any case. But it’s good to have his mind occupied with the matter at hand.
