Kirk Cousins was in a festive mood after the Redskins kept their chances at a .500 season alive on Sunday.

The Washington quarterback arrived at his post-game news conference sporting a spectacular Christmas-themed suit, featuring evergeen fabric dotted with colourful ornaments and even shiny silver strands apparently meant to replicate tinsel.

It is the second consecutive year Cousins has sported the suit – which he said was purchased by his wife – after a Christmas weekend win.

"There aren’t many occasions you can wear this for, and I assume after a win in a press conference, this is one of the few places this works," Cousins said following a 27-11 win over the Denver Broncos. "I really like it."

The quarterback noted he did have a check-down option on hand if the Redskins had lost to the Broncos.

"There was no way I was wearing this if we lost," he said.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid took it to another level, dressing as Santa Claus.
