Cousins completed 14 of 21 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while adding seven yards on five carries in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami.
Cousins got on a roll early, capping the opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs. He gave that touchdown back with a pick-six in the second quarter, a play that spurred on a 17-0 Dolphins run after the Vikings had raced out to a 21-0 lead. Minnesota responded with a 20-0 run of its own, including a 40-yard Cousins touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson. With between 201 and 215 yards in each of the past three games and a 4:3 touchdown to interception ratio over that span, Cousins will be tough to trust against the Lions in Week 16.
Cousins completed 20 of 33 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks. He also rushed three times for five yards and had a fumble returned for a touchdown.
Cousins was stymied by a swarming Seahawks defense, as 70 of his passing yards came on the Vikings' final drive while trailing by 21 points. Although Cousins capped that series with a six-yard touchdown to Dalvin Cook, his fumble on Minnesota's prior possession effectively sealed his team's second straight defeat. In back-to-back weeks, Cousins has barely topped 200 yards despite throwing a combined 77 times. Those struggles have resulted in just 17 points for the Vikings, leaving the signal-caller in clear need of improvement ahead of Week 15's visit from the Dolphins.
Cousins completed 32 of 44 pass attempts for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Patriots.
Although Cousins completed an impressive 73 percent of his passes and connected with eight different receivers, he finished averaging a miserable 4.6 yards per attempt. He threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen in the second quarter and tried to get his team back in the game late, only to throw interceptions on each of his last two drives. Cousins' poor effort is even more disappointing considering he posted 342 passing yards and three touchdowns last week against the Packers. He'll look to bounce back next Monday night against the Seahawks.
Cousins completed 29 of 38 pass attempts for 342 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-17 win over Green Bay.
Cousins outdueled Aaron Rodgers in this one, a feat that not many quarterbacks can lay claim to. The 30-year-old was accurate with his downfield shots -- an area he struggled with in the face of the Bears' defense last week -- leading to a season-high 9.0 yards per attempts. The signal caller eclipsed the 300-yard mark just once over his previous five games, so this huge performance was a welcomed sight for his fantasy owners. Cousins will need a similar showing against another all-time great when the Vikings take on Tom Brady and the Patriots in Foxborough in Week 13.
Cousins completed 30 of 46 pass attempts for 262 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Bears.
The Bears' vaunted defense was giving Cousins and the rest of Minnesota's offense fits for the majority of this contest. The 30-year-old couldn't be held down all game, making a fourth-quarter push to record both of his touchdowns, salvaging what was looking to be an atrocious stat line through three quarters. Cousins almost brought the Vikings all the way back in a contest that looked one-sided at halftime, but his inability to connect with Laquon Treadwell on a crossing route late in the game resulted in an interception that was returned for a touchdown, taking the air out of a strong comeback attempt. This was the first time that the accurate arm has thrown multiple interceptions in the same game this season. On tap is a Week 12 matchup with the Packers, who are no longer the defensive pushovers they once were, but are still a more-favorable matchup for Cousins than the Bears were on Sunday.
