QB Cousins has 'perfect' tuneup

ARLINGTON, Texas — Washington's Kirk Cousins is fine-tuned and ready for the playoffs, while the offseason can't get here fast enough for Dallas. Cousins passed for three touchdowns before leaving late in the first half. "It was perfect," tight end Jordan Reed said of his QB's performance. "He came out there hot, got it over with and got out." Cousins broke Jay Shroeder's franchise record for yards passing in a season, finishing with 4,166. The Redskins won four straight to finish the season, their longest streak since winning the last seven the last time they made the playoffs in 2012. The NFC East champs are the No. 4 seed on wild-card weekend. Kellen Moore had 435 yards passing and three touchdowns after throwing an interception and losing a fumble to help dig a quick 21-0 hole for Dallas, which at 4-12 finished with the most losses since going 1-15 in 1989, the year owner Jerry Jones bought the team. "It's probably been as difficult as any season we've been a part of," said 13th-year tight end Jason Witten.
