9. QB Kirk Cousins, WAS
The only reason Cousins is ranked higher than Bridgewater is because his offense is much more pass-oriented. Cousins throws the ball more often than Bridgewater and as a result he’s more of a threat in these playoffs.
Cousins bounced back in the second half of the regular season after throwing eight interceptions through Washington’s first seven games. In the final nine games Cousins threw for 2,429 yards, 20 touchdowns and three interceptions as he led Washington to a 6-3 record and an NFC East title.
Good thing they drafted this guy as insurance in the fourth round back in 2012.
Cousins leads this third tier of playoff quarterbacks. The next man on this list sits at the bottom of tier two, though if this were two or three years ago, nobody would have ever believed it.
