2019 may be his best chance to win a Super Bowl

Kirk Cousins is currently in the middle of his eighth season in the NFL. He has made it to the playoffs a couple of times in his career, but he has never won a game. 2019 may not only be his best chance to get back to the playoffs, but it may also be his best chance to win the whole damn thing.

Cousins is finding himself on a very good football team. He has a dynamic running game that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon and he also has dangerous weapons at wide receiver and tight end.

The Vikings also have a very good defense that excels at creating pressure and making opposing quarterbacks very uncomfortable in the pocket. All the pieces are in place for Cousins to lead this team to a deep playoff run.

If Minnesota is going to be a real threat in the NFC this season, they have to start winning on the road against good opponents. And that has to begin this Sunday against a team that owned the Vikings a year ago.

The Bears dominated Minnesota’s offensive line last season and Cousins had next to no chance to throw the football. The Vikings’ line is better this year, but Chicago’s defense still has the upper hand in this matchup.

Cousins will likely be under duress the entire game and he will probably have to make plays while he is scrambling for his life.

If Minnesota can win this week’s game against the Bears, they’ll put themselves in a great position to make a deep run this season. The Vikings have the confidence to know they can win on the road in a big spot and they will feel they can beat any team, anywhere.

If Minnesota loses again to Chicago this weekend, doubt could creep in. The loss could have a domino effect on the Vikings and things could start to go pear-shaped.
