Kirk Cousins Yells "How You Like Me Now", Tussles Redskins GM's Hair

The Cowboys already had finished their game and were back home, and the Redskins had yet to depart for the stadium. It was a festive locker room, to be sure, but several of Washington's players were clearly looking ahead.

"He was lights-out", Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson said. With Ezekiel Elliott coming up, they will have their hands full and the Cowboys have proven they can dominate the clock when a team can't stop their running game. Even if you don't like one of these two teams, this is going to be a must-watch game.

"Reality hit the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night: Their season is on the brink after a 42-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field served as the Packers" fourth straight defeat.

Kirk Cousins went deep late and often, throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns to lead Washington over the free-falling Packers. Kirk Cousins is completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,091 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. "We need to get win No. 5", said Head Coach Mike McCarthy, referring to Green Bay's matchup with the Eagles next Monday.

Next up for the Washington Redskins, a Thanksgiving showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. "We've got find a way to get a win next week and approach it one week at a time". That's all we've got right now. "We're in a tough stretch". After posting rushing outputs of 87 and 97 yards in his first two starts respectively, Robert Kelley powered the Redskins with 24 carries, 137 yards and three touchdowns.

In that moment, it appeared Cousins was sending a message to McCloughan with the message being to pay him.

At least their four-game streak of surrendering 30-plus points - first time that's happened for Pack since 1953 - will likely end in Philly.
"And yet, week in week out, we're doing it".

McCarthy said he understood fans and media want explanations for why the Packers have lost four in a row, but he said he's focused on immediate things like the next game. They have too many holes.

In fairness, Green Bay's defense is all kinds of banged up, as is their corps of running backs, and the list of injuries lengthened in Washington to include linebacker Blake Martinez (knee), safety Kentrell Brice (back) and cornerback Demetri Goodson (knee). Entering the game, the Packers defense still ranked fourth in the league in rush defense, but had seen their average yards allowed per game increase over the losing streak. Still, they know that what they've done so far to erase an 0-2 start won't mean much if they don't keep winning, starting Thursday at the NFC East-leading Cowboys (9-1).

The Packers' defense gave up passes of 70, 53 and 44 yards and allowed three TD runs to an undrafted rookie.
