If you ask a Minnesota Vikings fan about the most important storyline this season, they will say one of two things: moving on from Kirk Cousins at quarterback or working on the extension for wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

Depending on how you feel about Cousins' time with the Vikings, you likely will either cheer him for what he's given to Minnesota or will boo him for not accomplishing more during his time in a purple and gold jersey.

No matter how you feel about Kirk Cousins, fans will need to be ready for when "Kirko Chainz" makes the trip back to U.S. Bank Stadium to face off against the Minnesota Vikings for the third time in his career. With Washington, he had a 1-1 record against the purple and gold and will have a chance to have a winning record against them if he can get a win with the Falcons.

Now that the schedule has been released, we know when Cousins will face off against the Vikings this season and fans can circle that date on their calendars to ensure they don't miss a minute of what should be an extremely interesting football game.

How will the media spin this matchup? Will it be advertised as a "revenge game" for Kirk Cousins or will it be more of a light-hearted approach for this game? Either way, all eyes will be on the former Minnesota Vikings quarterback as well as the quarterback who took over for him after he left for Atlanta.

Because the Vikings and Falcons both finished third in their division and the rotation of the schedule has the NFC North playing their counterparts from the NFC South, it lined up perfectly for Atlanta to face Minnesota this year.

The schedule was released on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at 7 pm CT and fans now know when the Minnesota Vikings will host Kirk Cousins and the Atlanta Falcons. That game is scheduled to happen on:

Week 14: December 8, 2024 at noon at U.S. Bank Stadium

Seeing Kirk Cousins face off against the Minnesota Vikings should be extremely interesting this year. After six seasons in a purple and gold jersey, will the former Vikings quarterback play well against his old team or will the defense get the best of the veteran passer when they meet this season?
