Video of the fan will begin in the player above momentarily, following a short advertisement.

Kirk Cousins is the quarterback of the Washington Redskins, but judging by one fan's reaction on Saturday in Chicago you might have thought he was a member of The Beatles. 

After seeing a fan in the stands pregame holding a giant cardboard cutout of his face with a Santa hat attached to it, Cousins came over and signed it. 

The woman then began to tear up with joy as Cousins finished his signature and handed it back to her. 

Saturday's game in Chicago is a homecoming of sorts for Cousins, who was born in Barrington, Ill., which sits about an hour outside of the Windy City. 

In what is almost certainly a must-win game, Washington faces Chicago at 1 p.m.
