4 January 2016 Sports
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw for three touchdowns before leaving late in the first half of a playoff tuneup, and the Washington Redskins finished the regular season with a 34-23 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Cousins broke Jay Shroeder’s franchise record for yards passing in a season, finishing with 4,166. Had the game mattered, he might have threatened Sonny Jurgensen’s 48-year-old team record of 31 touchdown passes, instead settling for 29.
The Redskins (9-7) won four straight to finish the season, their longest streak since winning the last seven the last time they made the playoffs in 2012. The NFC East champions will be the No. 4 seed on wild-card weekend.
Kellen Moore had 435 yards passing and three touchdowns after throwing an interception and losing a fumble on a snap to help dig a quick 21-0 hole for the Cowboys (4-12).
