As a member of the Washington Redskins last season, the current Minnesota Vikings quarterback led his team to a road victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings will deal with the difficult task of trying to beat the Seattle Seahawks on the road.
Getting a win in Seattle is incredibly hard for any team around the NFL to accomplish. Since 2010, the Seahawks have 50 wins on their home field, the fourth-most of any team in the league during that time period.
Recently though, coming out with a road win over Seattle is definitely not as difficult as it used to be. In fact, the Seahawks have only won four of last 10 matchups at home, dating back to last season.
One of those recent losses Seattle suffered at home came at the hands of a team led by current Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.
As a member of the Washington Redskins last year, Cousins and his team were able to leave the Seahawks’ home stadium with a 17-14 win in Week 9.
After Seattle took a 14-10 lead with under two-and-a-half minutes remaining in the game, the current Minnesota signal-caller led the Redskins on a four-play, 70-yard drive that resulted in the go-ahead touchdown run by Washington running back Robert Kelley.
The drive only ended up taking a total of 35 seconds to complete thanks to a pair of long passes by Cousins that moved the Redskins from their own 30-yard line to the Seahawks’ one-yard line.
Despite him throwing for no scores and just 247 yards that day, Washington likely wouldn’t have escaped Seattle with a victory if not for the impressive effort of the their quarterback on the team’s final offensive drive.
Come this Monday, the Vikings and Cousins will be hoping for a similar outcome when they attempt to get a road win over the Seahawks.
