The NFL announced today that quarterback Kirk Cousins has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

In three games, Cousins completed 84 of his 116 passes for 1,086 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

This is the second time Cousins has been named the Player of the Month in his young career. Cousins won the award in December of 2015.

Cousins is the second player this year to be given Player of the Month honors. Kicker Dustin Hopkins won the award as the NFC Special Team Player of the Month in September. Cousins’ award marks the first time in franchise history the Redskins have had two separate players of the month.

Cousins selection makes him just the second player in franchise history to win the award twice, joining linebacker Wilber Marshall, who won the award for NFC Defensive Player of the month in October of 1991 and October of 1992.

Cousins and the Redskins take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
