This will prompt eye-rolls from Denver Broncos fans and rightfully so. Why? Because Kirk Cousins has only played three games against the Broncos in his career.
Most recently, Denver was snakebitten by the Vikings in a Cousins-led comeback of mammoth proportions. Minnesota and their quarterback erased a 20-point halftime deficit to get the win over Denver in Week 11 of last season. That was the first time any NFL team had surmounted a 20-plus point halftime lead since 2014.
Over the course of his three matchups with the Broncos, Cousins has led his team to victories twice, with the other time coming when he was a member of the Redskins. Against Denver, he has accumulated a total of 666 passing yards, six touchdowns, three interceptions, a 65 percent completion rate, and a 100.1 passer rating.
Out of the 96 quarterbacks who have attempted 80 or more passes against the Broncos in team history, that 100.1 passer rating is the fifth-best of all-time. It’s only outranked by Dan Marino, Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, and Ron Jaworski.
