Vikings’ Kirk Cousins Could Surpass Former Eagles Great

Adjust Comment Print

No stranger to criticism, Cousins was dealt more by a former teammate ahead of the Vikings' matchup with the visiting Eagles on Sunday.

But that changed early on Sunday when Cousins found Diggs on the first play of the game and fed him the ball two more times in the first five plays. The Eagles start a three-game road trip, while the Vikings have lost both games against NFC opponents with winning records, so they can get in the win column before playing three of their next four games on the road.

The sign that this was not the Eagles' day came right after that, when a fake field goal from the 21 failed with 20 seconds left.

"It was never not good", Diggs said of his relationship with the team. Avonte Maddox and Ronald Darby are out, and they have a number of other players who are banged up. They have real good receivers. If the Vikings offensive line can protect Cousins, Minnesota's wideouts should win their matchups. "That's when you have to be able to throw the ball".

Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook is second in the National Football League in rushing yards (542) and tied for third in rushing touchdowns (5).

Kevin's resignation comes at a time when Trump administration is facing a hard time to deal with the immigration issue. A source close to the process told CNN that White House officials tried to talk McAleenan out of resigning.

The issue here is that the Eagles enter Week 6 as the No. 1 rush defense in the NFL.

"They run the ball, play action, and throw the ball deep", Douglas said. They've allowed 63.0 rushing yards per game this season, which is the fewest per game in the NFL.

If the Vikings can't run and the game is put on Cousins' shoulders, we tend to know what happens. The problem was the Giants' defense is very bad - actually, the whole team is terrible - and so it was hard to take too much from that game. Cousins completed 22 of 27 passes for 306 yards with two touchdowns and a 138.6 rating, including seven completions for 130 yards and two scores to Adam Thielen. Both teams will have to resort to the pass as both defenses should win the matchups against the run. He's been more of a fantasy quarterback than a serious Super Bowl contender.
