Kirk Cousins collects stats, wins and NFC Player of the Month award

Kirk Cousins collects stats, wins and NFC Player of the Month award

How do you like him now?

The month of November was a good one for Kirk Cousins. The Redskins quarterback added two entries into his "Great Internet Hits" collection, became the franchise leader in games with at least 300 passing yards and racked up two wins in three games.

Cousins' efforts did not go unnoticed, as the NFL tabbed him the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

The Redskins won two of their three games in November, a 26-20 victory over the Vikings in Week 10 and a 42-24 throttling of the Packers in primetime of Week 11.

In the win over the Vikings, Cousins threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns, finishing with a passer rating of 110.9.

Against the Packers, in a playoff redemption game in the eyes of many, Cousins put forth his best winning performance of the season. He completed 21 of 30 passes for 375 yards and threw for three touchdowns. His 12.5-yard average pass completion was the highest single-game mark of the season  by nearly four yards.

In the Redskins' final game of the month, a 31-26 loss to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, Cousins continued to torrid pace, throwing for 449 yards and three touchdowns on 41 completions. 

In all, Cousins finished the month of November 84 of 116 with 1086 passing yards and eight touchdowns. Cousins led the league in average passing yards per game in the month of November, with 362 yards per game.

But the biggest stat of the month?

Zero interceptions.

The honor is his second of his career. Cousins earned the award in December of 2015, when he threw for 1203 yards and 10 touchdowns as the Redskins went 3-1 on the month.

Cousins is now just one of two players in franchise history — the other being linebacker Wilber Marshall in October of 1991 and 1992 — to win multiple Player of the Month awards.

Former Redskin Josh Doctson signs with New York Jets

Former Redskin Josh Doctson signs with New York Jets

Former Redskins' wideout Josh Doctson has found another home, again. 

Doctson, 27, signed with the New York Jets the team announced Saturday morning via twitter. 

Washington selected Doctson with their 22nd pick in the 2016 NFL draft after he put up monster numbers at Texas Christian University. However, his collegiate success never quite translated to the professional level. During his three seasons in D.C. he played 33 games, recorded 81 receptions for a total of 1,100 yards and 8 touchdowns.

After Washinton released Doctson last September he joined the Minnesota Vikings, but injuries held him to only one appearance and no catches.

Josh Hart tries to recruit Stefon Diggs to Redskins amidst trade rumors

Josh Hart tries to recruit Stefon Diggs to Redskins amidst trade rumors

New Orleans Pelican Josh Hart tried to recruit Stefon Diggs in a twitter exchange Thursday surrounding Jordan Reed’s release from the Redskins.

Reed was released on Thursday after six seasons and seven years on the team.

In a tweet commemorating Reed’s accomplishments, the Redskins called him “one of the best in franchise history” and thanked him for his years on the team.

Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins showed his disappointment in Reed’s release by quoting the tweet with a crying emoji. Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs shared similar feelings by responding to the quote saying “not my dog j reed…”.

Diggs is a Maryland native but has been with the Vikings since he was drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft in the fifth round.

In response to this exchange, Hart chimed in and pleaded with him to “Come on home bro #HTTR”.  Hart, a D.C. native and long-time Redskins fan, is not the only one who has been looking to help the Redskins with their player recruitment.

Haskins has also made recruiting for the Redskins a habit this season, engaging with players like Ron Rivera and Antonio Brown through social media regarding coming to play in DC.

Hart's interaction with Diggs is particularly notable considering that his recent social media has left Vikings fans wondering what his next moves are. In addition to cryptic tweets potentially linked to his dissatisfaction with his team, Diggs also took down all of his Instagram pictures which feature him in a Vikings uniform.

Could Diggs be heading to the Redskins? If Hart has any say in the matter, maybe.
