Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was outplayed by Andy Dalton in London. Despite the win, that’s not a great look.
Dalton is the Saints backup quarterback, which is an important reminder since starting QB Jameis Winston missed this game with a back injury.
Winston’s injury has been described as relatively serious, but it remains to be seen if Dalton will be forced into action again next week. In London, he played fairly conservatively, completing 20-of-28 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t throw an interception.
Kirk Cousins, however, is one of the top-paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Yet. Minnesota fans are left wanting more on a weekly basis. In London, he was outplayed by Dalton despite the win.
Vikings fans furious at Kirk Cousins despite win
Vikings fans expect more out of their quarterback, who they paid $35 million this season if you include the signing bonus.
Are the English simply rooting against our version of football? Perhaps it’ll die out, and this is the long play.
Even Justin Jefferson is fed up, and it’s tough to blame him.
If only it were that easy! Does this count as primetime Kirk?
