Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins will be playing on Monday Night Football against NFC East rival Philadelphia with a heavy heart and a lot of emotions. He found out that his grandmother passed away on Sunday.
The Instagram post had a message that said: “She left a Spiritual heritage for her children’s children (Deut 6:2) Her favorite song was ‘In the Garden’. She I now living that hymn more than ever before!”
Cousins was incredibly close with his grandmother and he actually bought his now-famous conversion van from her to go to games and practices in 2014. He also used to go to college football games as a kid while driving in the van with his grandmother.
The former Pro Bowler comes into the game with 1,334 passing yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions on the season as well as two game-winning drives. The Redskins are 3-2 heading into the game against the division leaders who sit at 5-1.
