After a strong performance to start the season, Minnesota Viking’s Kirk Cousins’ persistent flaw manifested itself again during Week 2.
During a miserable loss to the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, where the scoreline read 24-7 against the Minnesota Vikings, on Football of Monday Night, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback tossed three interceptions. On Monday night, Cousins’ career record after the loss read 2-10, which according to NFL Stats, is the lowest mark in the history of the league.
In the final stat line, Cousins completed 27 46 passes for a huge 221 yards, an amazing yard touchdown pass to Smith in the second quarter, the three interceptions above, and a huge 51.1 quarterback rating. Despite Cousins’ struggles and mistakes, Minnesota’s ineffective offense was to a fault, according to Kevin O’Connell, the Vikings’ inexperienced head coach, as the team tried to claw its way out of a halftime trail of 17 points deficit.
Kirk Cousins, The QB For The Minnesota Vikings, Throw Interception In Lost Match On Monday Night Football:
In the second half, while the QB Kirk Cousins and his team, the Minnesota Vikings struggled, Jalen Hurts of the Eagles shone, scoring three touchdowns to help Philadelphia extend their lead to 24-7. Only five Minnesota plays resulted from the second half.
In the second half, Kirk Cousins was harassed by the opponent player, Slay, who covered star Minnesota Vikings’ Justin Jefferson and had two interceptions. Although the first half’s deficit may have forced the second half’s pass-heavy strategy, the offense of the Minnesota Vikings that was led by Kirk Cousins was just as appalling throughout the opening 30 minutes of play. The Minnesota Vikings have had consecutive three-and-outs to start the game and two more to end the first half.
The Eagle’s defense pursued Cousins relentlessly throughout the game as the Viking’s offense transitioned from an approach that was balanced that resulted in three-and-outs to a throwing frenzy that resulted in interceptions.
