Cousins passed for 375 yards and three touchdowns, Robert Kelley rushed for 137 yards and three scores, and the Redskins defeated the Packers 42-24. After Green Bay countered with another TD in the high-scoring second half, Cousins directed an 11-play, 81-yard drive during which he rushed for a first down on fourth and 1 from Washington's 40 and lofted a 53-yard pass to Crowder that put the ball on the Packers 1-yard line.
As he left the field after Sunday's victory, quarterback Kirk Cousins yelled, "How do you like me now?" twice as he hugged Redskins general manager Scott McCloughan and slapped his hand.
Green Bay has lost four straight games.
As the chants of "We want Dallas!"
Washington (6-3-1) looks ready for Dallas, the NFL-best 9-1 Cowboys, on Thanksgiving Day. In Sunday's loss at Washington, the Green Bay defense gave up three plays of 50 yards or more in the fourth quarter - no other team in the league has given up that many 50-plus yard plays in the fourth quarter all season, per ESPN's SportsCenter. "Obviously coming in here, we knew we needed this game", McCarthy said. Tight end Jordan Reed (49) and wide receivers Pierre Garcon (48), Jamison Crowder (48) and DeSean Jackson (34) have combined for 178 receptions. Garcon caught a 70-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins.
"We put ourselves in a tough spot", said Rodgers, who was 26 of 41 for 351 yards, three TDs and zero interceptions.
"We've got to find a way to get a win next week (at Philadelphia). We can't control the health of the football team but we need to get the turnover ratio turned because that ain't cutting it". "We're in a tough stretch". The Green Bay Packers coach is too even-keeled for that.
That's in the range of what Baltimore's Joe Flacco, Arizona's Carson Palmer and Atlanta's Matt Ryan will cost against the salary cap in 2017, and Cousins doesn't yet have the resume of those established starters.
The only team not to score that many was Chicago, so good job Green Bay. "And yet, week in week out, we're doing it".
"I don't think it's really fair, no", Gruden said Monday on a conference call with reporters, "but we have to deal with it". Despite being the most penalized player in the NFL, Norman makes up for it with his tenacity.
Most troubling for Green Bay is opponents have figured out the clear way to beat the Packers is to go deep against the porous back end of their defence. He's led Washington to the second in total offense, and third in passing yards.
"I don't know how he did it", Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.
Cousins dazzled throughout, completing 21 of 30 passes, including 10 of 12 after halftime.
