2. Kirk Cousins will surpass Warren Moon on the Vikings all-time TD leaderboard
In the 1990s, signal-caller Warren Moon played for 2.5 seasons with the Vikings while accruing 58 touchdown passes. Current quarterback Kirk Cousins has played the equivalent of two seasons (32 games) with the Vikings and sits at 58 touchdowns passes, too.
Unless Cousins encounters a stinker of a game, he will take over Warren Moon’s spot for sole possession of No. 6 on the Vikings all-time touchdown passes list. And, he will do so in six fewer games than Moon. An argument can be made, though, that Moon and Cousins’ eras are uniquely different because the NFL has evolved into a pass-heavy league. While true, Cousins will own Moon’s spot regardless.
After that, Cousins is in hot pursuit of Brad Johnson. The Super Bowl champion quarterback tossed 65 touchdowns for the Vikings in 68 total games. Should the Vikings maintain a usual pace of offensive production by Mike Zimmer’s standards, Cousins will overtake Johnson in a few weeks.
