7 Minnesota Vikings milestones to watch for in Week 2
By Dustin Baker
6. There are seven NFL teams Kirk Cousins has yet to defeat — the Colts are one of them
Here’s the rub: Kirk Cousins has never attempted a single pass attempt against the Indianapolis Colts. Cousins is now a nine-year veteran. It’s rather odd that he hasn’t butted heads with the Colts franchise, not even once. That changes this weekend.
These are the teams that Kirk Cousins does not own victories over: Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Colts. Cousins is nearly guaranteed to take a stab at three of these teams in 2020 and would have to meet one of the AFC teams in a Super Bowl matchup if the stars aligned for the Vikings.
But those are the seven. Outside of the Panthers, Cousins has at least one win against every team in the NFC. The Texans host the Vikings in Week 4 of the 2020 season, so Cousins will attempt to put a checkmark next to Houston in the win column before too long.
