Leading into the game, running back Pierre Thomas said Cousins should learn a lot from his first playoff start, but the quarterback won't be able to show what he gained until next season.
"Hopefully this whole run, this end of the season, showed these guys they have what it takes to be here, to do the same thing, even better," Thomas said. "I'm still going to work out, and hopefully, I do get a call back from this organization. I feel like I'm a good fit here. I feel like I can help out."
