Fresh off of their upset of the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, what are some of the top Minnesota Vikings news stories from the last few days?

There has been plenty of Minnesota Vikings news to discuss since the team was able to get a much-needed win over the San Francisco 49ers this past Monday.

Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins has been performing at a record pace this season, former Vikings head-coaching candidate Jim Harbaugh is in some hot water, and Danielle Hunter maintaining his lead in a top defensive category are just some of the top news items worth diving deeper into.

So, let's not wait any longer and get right into it.

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is on pace to have his best season ever

Through seven games, Cousins has thrown for 2,057 yards, 16 touchdowns, and five interceptions. His totals currently have him ranked second in the NFL in passing yards and first in passing touchdowns.

At his current pace, Cousins is on track to throw for 4,996 yards and 39 touchdowns during the entire 2023 campaign. Both amounts would set new single-season career records for the veteran signal-caller.

In addition, his projected total for passing yards this year (4,996) would break the Vikings' all-time record for passing yards in a single season, which is currently held by Daunte Culpepper. Cousins' projected passing touchdown total would also tie Culpepper's current franchise record for passing touchdowns in a single season (39).

Minnesota's current quarterback might be on his way to having the best regular-season performance of his NFL career, a career that began back in 2012.
