    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Strong showing in OT win

    Kirk Cousins completed 33 of 48 pass attempts for 373 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 34-28 overtime win over the Panthers.Cousins was brilliant against a Panthers defense that is no pushover. Having a healthy Dalvin Cook back certainly helped ease the opponent's defensive focus away from the passing attack, which could bode well for the veteran arm if his star back can stay healthy following the team's upcoming bye. Cousins will head into said bye with a strong start to the season overall, producing three 300-plus yard and four multi-touchdown games, all while completing over two-thirds of his passes through six contests.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Solid, yet unspectacular in win

    Kirk Cousins completed 25 of 34 pass attempts for 275 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 19-17 win over Detroit.Cousins turned in a fantasy performance that can't be complained about, nor celebrated, as it was spectacularly average across the board. It was a step in the right direction for the veteran arm, who turned in a dud against the Browns last game. Cousins will enter next week's tilt against the Cowboys with a solid 10:2 TD:INT ratio through five games.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Underwhelming effort in loss

    Kirk Cousins completed 20 of 38 passes for 203 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Minnesota Vikings' 14-7 loss to the Browns on Sunday. He also rushed twice for no gain.Cousins appeared primed for another big day akin to his Week 3 performance against the Seahawks when he led the Vikings on a 14-play, 75-yard opening drive that he capped off with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Justin Jefferson. However, that would essentially prove to be the high point of the veteran quarterback's day, as he was subsequently sacked twice, picked off once and victimized by inaccuracy and tight coverage on the part of the Browns secondary. Cousins' lackluster showing naturally capped the fantasy value of his stellar receiver duo of Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen for the afternoon, while Cousins failed to throw multiple touchdown passes for the first time this season. The entire Vikings offense will look to bounce back in a favorable Week 5 home matchup against the Lions.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Carves up Seattle in Week 3 win

    Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 38 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Seahawks.He also gained two yards on his lone carry. Cousins has no trouble picking apart the Seahawks' secondary and for the second straight game found three different targets in the end zone, this time connecting with Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and Tyler Conklin for scores. Cousins will take an eye-popping 73.9 percent completion rate and 8:0 TD:INT into a Week 4 home tilt against the Browns.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Tosses three TDs in loss

    Kirk Cousins completed 22 of 32 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Cardinals.He also added 35 rushing yards on two carries. Cousins was efficient all afternoon, hitting K.J. Osborn, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson for scores in the first half, and he had the Minnesota Vikings in position to kick a game-winning field goal at the end of the fourth quarter, but Greg Joseph missed from 37 yards out. Cousins has looked very good through two games but has two narrow road losses to show for it, a streak he'll look to snap in Week 3 at home against the Seahawks.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Tops 350-yard mark in OT loss

    Kirk Cousins completed 36 of 49 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Bengals.Cousins connected with reliable target Adam Thielen for touchdowns of five and 24 yards, then helped erase a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter by setting up a Dalvin Cook rushing touchdown and Greg Joseph's game-tying 53-yard field goal as time expired. The veteran quarterback saw plenty of volume in a game that lasted nearly 70 minutes before Dalvin Cook's fumble set up the Bengals' game-winning field goal. Cousins will likely take to the air aplenty again in Week 2 against Arizona.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Plays three drives

    Kirk Cousins completed five of seven passes for 57 yards in Friday night's 28-25 preseason loss to the Chiefs.Cousins once again played three drives, leading the Minnesota Vikings to a field goal out of the gate before the Vikings were forced to punt twice. The signal-caller was without starting wideouts Justin Jefferson (shoulder) and Adam Thielen (thigh), and instead showed a good rapport with tight end Irv Smith, who caught both his targets for 39 yards. With the preseason now in the books, Cousins will look forward to having all his weapons available ahead of Week 1's matchup against the Bengals.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Could play Friday night

    Coach Mike Zimmer said his plan for Friday's preseason game against the Chiefs will be similar to last week, suggesting Kirk Cousins and other starters could get a quarter or so of playing time, Eric Smith of the Minnesota Vikings' official website reports.Cousins completed five of seven passes for 23 yards in last week's preseason loss to the Colts, failing to produce any points on three drives while playing into the second quarter. He may be throwing to a crew of backups if he suits up Friday night, as Justin Jefferson (shoulder) and Adam Thielen (thigh) are still banged up, while Dalvin Cook could be rested even if most other starters play.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Directs three drives Saturday

    Kirk Cousins completed five of seven passes for 23 yards and had a nine-yard carry during Saturday's preseason loss to the Colts.Cousins was without Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson (shoulder), and coach Mike Zimmer revealed after the game that Adam Thielen has a bruised thigh, the result of a knee to the region early in the contest, per Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Considering the bad injury luck for the Minnesota Vikings' skill positions this month, it wouldn't surprise if the team takes every precaution to reach Week 1 with the aforementioned quartet all healthy and available. As a result, Cousins' exhibition season may be over after directing three possessions Saturday.
