Redskins 47, Saints 14

Cousins lights up bad Saints defense

LANDOVER, Md. — Until Sunday, Washington's Kirk Cousins had never thrown for more than three touchdowns in an NFL game. Nor had he had a TD pass of more than 7 yards this season. Of course he hadn't faced the Saints' defense, either.

In by far his best game as a pro, Cousins threw for a career-high four touchdowns and registered a perfect rating of 158.3 to lead the Redskins to a rout.

"I'm getting better as a quarterback," Cousins said. "When you're in the zone and things are going really well, you're just playing and your mind is free and you're not allowing things to inhibit your play."

New Orleans has allowed 130 points and more than 1,400 yards in their past three games, the worst defensive three-game span in team history, according to STATS.
