Kirk Cousins – QB
After his first year in a Vikings uniform didn’t turn out the way most had hoped it would, Kirk Cousins headed into the 2019 season with a ton of pressure on his shoulders.
At first, it seemed like Cousins was going to let the pressure overwhelm him and lead him to having another disappointing campaign. However, the Minnesota quarterback is currently playing some of the best football of his career during the team’s last four games.
Since Week 5, Cousins has been arguably the best passer in the NFL. During the last four weeks, he’s completed 78.5 percent of his passes for 1,261 yards (315.3 average), 10 touchdowns, and just one interception.
The Vikings took a chance on Cousins last year when they signed him to a three-year, fully-guaranteed $84 million contract. What he’s been able to do during their last four games is exactly why they gave him such a big chunk of change.
Will he be able to keep it up during the second half of the season?
