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.

Report: Seahawks cut CB Kemah Siverand for attempting to sneak woman into team hotel

Report: Seahawks cut CB Kemah Siverand for attempting to sneak woman into team hotel

As NFL training camps open, teams are taking every protective measure to ensure player safety. Extensive testing protocols agreed upon by the NFL and the NFLPA and daily testing until at least September 5 prove safety is the league's number one priority.

But in order for the NFL's plans to work, players have to do their part

On Thursday, the Seattle Seahawks cut rookie cornerback Kemah Siverand after he was caught trying to sneak a female visitor into the team hotel, according to Tom Pelissero. Siverand and the woman, who was wearing Seattle gear in an attempt to disguise herself as a Seahawks player, were both caught on camera.

The Seahawks' quick action shows how serious teams are handling COVID-19 protocols. Head coach Pete Carroll is sending a clear message that actions that put the entire team at risk will not be tolerated.  

Fans got a glimpse of what the NFL's safety protocols were like during Hard Knocks this week. The quick decision to cut Siverand shows that irresponsible action won't be tolerated as the NFL season approaches.

Report: Minority owners pressuring Dan Snyder to sell Washington Football Team

Report: Minority owners pressuring Dan Snyder to sell Washington Football Team

Dan Snyder is facing mounting pressure from three of his minority investors to sell the Washington Football Team according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.

“The stakes have attracted interest from a variety of potential buyers, but Mr. Snyder has been reluctant to give any of them the option to eventually buy control despite the attempt to oust him,” the Journal wrote in its story Thursday afternoon.  “That has prompted some would-be buyers to walk away.”

Snyder’s ownership seems to face battles on nearly every front.

In the last six weeks the team dropped its more than 80-year old “Redskins” moniker amid threats from multiple sponsors of significant lost revenue due to its racist connotations. 
Last month, a Washington Post story alleged widespread sexual harassment and verbal abuse against women inside the organization and the team is now conducting an internal investigation on the report.

The three minority investors combine own about 40% of the team but their shares would be worth much more if the entire organization was up for sale.

Snyder has also filed a defamation lawsuit in federal court this week that loosely claims a conspiracy against him from one of the team’s current investors. A lawyer for Snyder told NBC Sports Washington on Tuesday that a former team employee bribed an Indian media company to put out a defamatory and false story against him. 

The Journal reports that tensions between Snyder and his minority investors have simmered for “at least a year.” It writes that FedEx founder and chairman Frederick Smith, one of the three minority owners and the man whose company has the naming writes to Washington’s home stadium, attempted to sell his share of the team last year only to have a slow approval process involving Snyder sink a potential deal. The interested investor instead purchased a minority stake in another NFL team.
