In the NFL, the Washington Redskins lead their division after beating the New York Giants last Sunday 20 to 14. The team’s surprising success is partially due to Kirk Cousins.
The quarterback spent the early part of his career behind Robert Griffin III. But after RG3’s lackluster performance and a series of injuries, Cousins became the starter. He says his role as both a servant and a leader is all part of God’s plan.
Cousins was surprised when he heard the Washington Redskins selected him in the 4th round of the 2012 NFL draft. He was stunned because the team had already selected a quarterback in the first round in Robert Griffin III.
“The most interesting thing was that the Washington Redskins were nowhere on my radar especially after they traded up for Robert,” he recalled. “I felt like Robert was going to be going there and they’d be set.”
Now that the shock factor of the situation has worn off, his role with the team is becoming clearer.
“The fact that I’m here and that this is where my future’s going to be for now is a very unique thing and I think it shows God’s hand on the process,” he told CBN News.
