Kirk Cousins has always been an easy target. Maybe it’s his penchant for interceptions. Or his gif-inspiring post-match celebrations. Perhaps it’s the then-record $84 million over three years the Minnesota Vikings handed him in 2018.
The narrative that Kirk Cousins is not a very good quarterback is one that needs to stop. After last season’s somewhat disappointing campaign for the Minnesota Vikings, which saw Cousins throw for 4298 yards, 30 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, the ‘talking-heads’ and media personalities sentenced Cousins to a career of mediocrity and ‘choking’.
The Minnesota Vikings had no alternative to a win on Sunday Night Football at AT&T Stadium, and what they did was make a statement. With their 28-24 win over the Cowboys, the 7-3 Vikings are not only closer to solidifying their wild card spot, but they might be an even bigger threat to the NFC North leaders Green Bay Packers.
