    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Falls short in San Francisco

    Kirk Cousins completed 20 of 32 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the 49ers.He hit Adam Thielen for a pair of first-half scores, but the Minnesota Vikings' passing game fell quiet in the second half and Cousins couldn't put together a game-tying drive during a scoreless fourth quarter. The 33-year-old QB has tossed multiple touchdowns in four straight games, a streak he'll look to extend -- albeit with better results -- in Week 13 against the Lions.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Stays hot in home victory

    Kirk Cousins completed 24 of 35 pass attempts for 341 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 34-31 win over Green Bay.Cousins went into a matchup that can be challenging for opposing quarterbacks and excelled while leading his team to a surprising victory. The 33-year-old has been on a roll of late, completing 67 percent of his passes for 1,379 yards with 11 touchdowns and no interceptions over his last five contests. Cousins will look to keep his momentum rolling next Sunday against a San Francisco squad that is very thin in the secondary.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Strong effort in road win

    Kirk Cousins completed 25 of 37 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers.Both scores were caught by Tyler Conklin, but Cousins' favorite target on the day was Justin Jefferson, who hauled in nearly 50 percent of the quarterback's passing yards. It's the sixth time in nine games Cousins has tossed multiple TDs, and he'll take a sharp 18:2 TD:INT into a Week 11 clash with the Packers.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Three total TDs in loss

    Kirk Cousins completed 17 of 28 passes for 187 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Minnesota Vikings' 34-31 overtime loss to the Ravens on Sunday. He also scored a one-yard touchdown on his only rush attempt.Cousins didn't take a single sack and stayed away from turnovers altogether, but he still turned in an underwhelming effort from a yardage perspective against what had been an inconsistent secondary. Nevertheless, he delivered for fantasy managers with his three total touchdowns, with the two through the air going to Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen from 50 and one yard out in the first and fourth quarters, respectively. Cousins has been under 200 passing yards in two straight games and will have an uphill battle to improve much on his yardage numbers against the stingy Chargers secondary in Week 10.

    Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Harassed by DAL defense

    Kirk Cousins completed 23 of 35 pass attempts for 184 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Cowboys.Cousins only took one sack Sunday, but he seemed to be under constant pressure from the Cowboys' pass rush throughout the contest. This resulted in shorter throws from the veteran arm (5.3 yards per attempt), and some miscommunications with his receivers, as evidenced by his visible frustration at the end of multiple stalled drives. Cousins had been performing at a high level prior to Sunday's rough showing, and he will get a golden opportunity to get things back on track in a tasty matchup against the Ravens' league-worst pass defense in Week 9.

    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.
