Kirk Cousins looked to be on his way to an Offensive MVP award at the 2017 Pro Bowl, right up until he didn't. Cousins entered the game in the fourth quarter facing a two-score deficit, but had his team in position to tie the game with a late touchdown.
Cousins fired to an open Jimmy Graham (Seahawks tight end) and the ball was delivered on the money. Only Graham didn't bring it in, and the ball bounced right to Bills LB Lorenzo Alexander for the interception.
Then things got really wild.
On the return, Alexander lateralled the ball to Broncos CB Aqib Talib. The Denver speedster took off running toward the opposite end zone, and looked to be on his way in for a touchdown. Only Cousins came sprinting up and hit Talib from behind, stripping the ball out. It was an incredible display of hustle from any quarterback, let alone a quarterback facing free agency playing in an exhibition game.
After the game, Cousins said on the ESPN broadcast of the game that he thought Talib was holding the ball loosely and that he "was trying to do his best Don Beebe impersonation," a nod to the famous Bills special teams star's strip of Leon Lett in the 1990s.
For the game, Cousins completed 14 of 20 passes for 158 yards and one interception. He was sacked twice.
