Kirk Cousins has earned long-term contract with Washington Redskins

On Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, Washington's decision makers saw plenty.

Of course, the Redskins and Cousins also have to decide what to do with each other.

Instead, Cousins gripped the ball tighter, ripped it into the air and threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Redskins to a 42-24 victory Sunday night, Washington's sixth victory in eight games. "We don't need that".

"We've had enough time now to get him acclimated", McCarthy said. With the Redskins trailing 10 to 7 late in the period, Rob Kelley scored on a 10-yard touchdown run.

As the chants of "We want Dallas!". It was his team-record 17th career 300-yard passing game in one of the best performances in his career.

"Kirk, he's a victor, he's a leader, he's everything you want in a quarterback", said tight end Vernon Davis, who played last season with Peyton Manning. "I'm speechless. I don't know what else to say".

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.

Rodgers passed for 351 yards (on 26-of-41 passing) and three touchdowns.

They haven't had a losing season since Aaron Rodgers' first year as the starting quarterback in 2008. Our pass defense, we didn't get off the field. But he has to figure out a way to get a complete game out of whoever is available, because right now his unit's lapses are killing his team. "Now we're looking forward to Dallas". The Cowboys have not only won nine straight games, but they've covered all nine as well.

"It's great to be playing the way we're playing", quarterback Kirk Cousins said, "and it's just a matter of doing it again this Thursday against a very good football team".

GREEN BAY IN DEEP: The loss put the Packers two games back of the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions in the NFC North.

Green Bay is preparing to face the Philadelphia Eagles, who find themselves at No. 16 after their tough loss in Seattle.

Here's what coach Jay Gruden said about that last week: "We can go through the anybodies around the league the last 10 years, and not a lot can do what he's done for the last 20 games".

-The Redskins' 515 yards of offense were the most they have had in a 60-minute (non-overtime) game since they had 559 against the Falcons in Week 11 in 1991. His 70-yard touchdown reception from Kirk Cousins was the longest play of the game.

"The fourth-and-1 was pretty simple: It was half a yard, and the wind was pretty strong in our face", Gruden said. "He understands what it's like to play at this level and the challenges and demands and pressure that come with it". "I'm speechless", safety Micah Hyde said.

100 - The Skins had two 100-yard receivers and a 100-yard rusher against the Packers.

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson had a 13-yard touchdown catch that stood up after video review, despite ambiguity over whether he held on to the ball.

"I feel good about getting that sixth win and I've been getting too much credit", Kelley said Sunday.
