Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins made sure the Redskins didn’t lose their final home game of the season.
Cousins threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns as Washington pounded Denver 27-11 Sunday.
The first three points belonged to the Broncos in the game’s first stanza. Kicker Brandon McManus booted through a 31-yard field goal with 2:06 remaining for the only points of the opening frame.
Washington’s response: 27 unanswered points. Kicker Dustin Hopkins connected on a 26-yard field goal and Cousins zipped a 15-yard TD pass to receiver Jamison Crowder to give Washington a 10-3 halftime advantage.
After a 29-yarder from Hopkins in the third, Cousins threw darts of 48 and 31 yards to Josh Doctson and Vernon Davis in the fourth to put the Redskins ahead 27-3. Denver’s lone touchdown came on a C.J. Anderson run of five yards in the waning seconds of the contest.
Anderson totaled 88 yards and a score on 16 carries. Quarterback Brock Osweiler was 22-of-38 passing for 193 yards and an interception.
Cousins was 19-of-37 through the air for 299 and three touchdowns. Washington racked up 386 yards, third-most by a Bronco opponent this season.
