Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was the villain on Sunday as he threw an interception with just 72 seconds left as Washington blew their chance at a play-off place with a 19-10 home loss to the Giants.
It was Cousins’ second interception as they lost to a New York team with nothing to play for.
Trevin Wade then picked off Jordan Reed’s attempted lateral pass in the final play before running it in for a touchdown.
