Cousins has been up one game, down the next in his five starts. On the en­cour­ag­ing side: He hasn’t been rat­tled by bad plays, has been rea­son­ably ac­cu­rate (68.1 com­ple­tion per­cent­age) and showed grit in lead­ing a 90-yard, gamewin­ning drive against Philadel­phia in Week 4 fol­lowed by a ga­me­ty­ing drive with 24 sec­onds re­main­ing last week. But he was off on sev­eral key throws against At­lanta, failed to spot some open tar­gets and threw the in­ter­cep­tion that ended the game when a Fal­cons de­fender came un­blocked and his tar­get, Ryan Grant, fell down. Whether the throw would have been com­pleted oth­er­wise is an open ques­tion, but quar­ter­backs are ul­ti­mately judged on their wins and losses.
