ARLINGTON, Texas - Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins entered the team's record books on Sunday, playing the first 22 minutes of a game against Dallas and leading the Redskins to a 24-0 advantage.

Cousins finished with 176 yards and 3 touchdowns. Most notably, he connected with Jamison Crowder on a 24-yard gain in the second quarter that gave him the franchise's single-season yardage record.

Cousins will finish the regular season with 4,166 yards, edging out Jay Schroeder's franchise record from 1986.

Cousins also finishes the season with 29 touchdowns, second most in franchise history, and his completion percentage of 69.8 is second only to Sammy Baugh's 1945 season, when Baugh completed 70.3 percent of his passes.

When Sunday's game ends, the Redskins will turn their attention to the postseason. They won't learn their opponent or game time until late Sunday night.
