Kirk Cousins has put his name in the GOAT QB after the retirements of Brady and Manning. Perhaps not the biggest player of his generation but his record in Prime-Time knockouts is amazing! Nonetheless, he’s also susceptible to injuries. Cousins’ recent injury came in the fourth quarter. With about 10 minutes to go in the quarter, the QB decided to make a play by stepping up in the pocket on a third down. As his right leg got buckled with Packers DT Kenny Clark sacking him, Cousins was immediately booted off the field.
