Attempting to move up the chains of the AFC West, the Denver Broncos head east to square off against the Washington Redskins.
In anticipation of his Week 16 matchup, Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib sized up quarterback Kirk Cousins with these interesting remarks.

With not a lot to work with at times as far as reliable pass-catchers, Cousins remains in the upper echelon of accurate quarterbacks. He is completing 66.1 percent of his passes. Only four quarterbacks currently still starting for their teams boast higher completion rates.
Of course this week, Talib will be aiming to put a stop to Cousins’ passing game.
On a side note, this matchup also presents the opportunity for the Broncos to observe Cousins live in action. Cousins is a name that has been connected with the Broncos as far as a potential future quarterback.
According to a recent report, the Broncos will be extremely active when it comes to finding a new quarterback during the offseason. They are potentially willing to spend some big money on a free agent quarterback.
That is exactly what Cousins becomes once his 2017 season with Washington is final. He should be a hot commodity that several teams — along with the Redskins — attempt to woo.
