Expectations are high for the Divisional Round this weekend, which sees the Niners face the Vikings, the Ravens host the Titans, Texans visit the Chiefs and the Seahawks head to Lambeau Field to face Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers.
Kirk Cousins finally did it. He led the Vikings en route to a win over the heavily-favoured Saints, in the Superdome, in overtime, with Minnesota advancing 26-20 onto a Divisional Round visit to Levi's Stadium and the San Francisco 49ers. Just like two years ago, New Orleans gets knocked out by Minnesota in dramatic fashion.
Not many rivalries have as consistently delivered in the playoffs as the one between the two teams which will get the 2019 NFC Wild Card round underway this Sunday. The Saints and the Vikings have put on a very competitive series of battles throughout the past decade, and here they find themselves as two of the top NFC sides yet again.
Voting is in full swing for the 2020 Pro Bowl. MVP contenders Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson will undoubtedly receive their invitations. Aside from the fanfare this pair are creating, there are some less spoken of names out there that deserve consideration.
The narrative that Kirk Cousins is not a very good quarterback is one that needs to stop.

Kirk Cousins struggles have continued through to this season which has caused a huge amount of frustration for Vikings fans and Viking players alike. More specifically the Vikings dynamic receiving duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
The Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers meet this Sunday in a showdown between 1-0 teams that, based on the squads’ performances in Week 1, could prove to be among the games that will decide the 2019 NFC North champion. The Wisconsin-based team gained an advantage in the divisional games, beating the Chicago Bears, 10-7, in the opening Thursday.
The NFC North looks set to be the tightest division in the NFL in 2019. The Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings all have serious – and realistic – playoff ambitions, while the Detroit Lions are still in contention, having picked up six wins in 2018.
It seems a long time since the Minneapolis Miracle now, doesn't it? But since Stefon Diggs reeled in one of the most memorable plays in football history, the Vikings have been a bit of a mystery.
