, Md. (AP) -- For all the injury problems and inconsistency the Washington Redskins have endured this season,

Kirk Cousins has started every game for the Redskins for the past three years, the polar opposite of their Week 16 opponent, the Denver Broncos, since Peyton Manning retired.

''I'll tell you, it hasn't been easy,'' said Broncos coach Vance Joseph, who hasn't announced his Sunday starter between Osweiler and Lynch.
''When you have had three different starting quarterbacks, obviously you want one guy in there so you can have continuity and you can have rhythm and a play selection that everyone's comfortable with. But when you're playing three, it's tough.''
Washington is one of just four teams in the NFL to start the same quarterback in each game from 2015-17. In that time, Cousins has taken 98.4 percent of snaps, all but 49 reserved for Colt McCoy in games that were out of hand or carried no meaning.
'' Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. ''We've been very fortunate to keep him healthy and for him to stay healthy and for him to be able to be in the lineup this entire season despite all the people that have changed around him.'',''That's one position that you really don't want a lot of change during the season
and his future is yet again uncertain with the possibility of another one-year deal in 2018.,Cousins could be the first Redskins quarterback to start each game in three consecutive seasons since Joe Theismann in the early 1980s. Of course he's also the first NFL QB to play back-to-back seasons on the franchise tag

,It's easier said than done as front offices and fan bases around the league consider what it would be like to have someone as durable and dependable as Cousins. Gruden would rather not think about it as he remembers Cousins
'' Gruden said. ''We try to keep a core group of plays that guys are comfortable with and try to stick to those. When you have a lot of change,''It was pretty disruptive, but you try to keep the core concepts in there and let them all try to work with those.'', you don't add a lot of new things for each individual quarterback
quarterbacks for the Broncos (5-9) said they're not bothered by the uncertainty and have been supportive of whoever gets the nod.,Mired in change all season
'' Osweiler said. ''There are a lot of things that take place in this business that you can't control. I think the sooner you learn that, the better mindset you'll have toward situations like this.'',''It's been a rollercoaster
