Seems like the Vikings' problems are at OL. The article mentions that they have had problems blocking for Cousins.

Whatever do they mean? He has Tom Compton blocking for him!

If the Vikings find a way to beat Chicago Sunday they will be 9-6-1. If they lose they will be 8-7-1 and could miss the playoffs.

A couple of games that draw my interest:

- Vikings: just to see how Cousins does

- Browns: I like that team. From zero wins in forever to a winning record, maybe. Baker Mayfield. Gregg Williams and Al Saunders coaching.

And the Redskins, of course. A win or a loss will not change their draft position much. A win is always good.

No matter who is playing or coaching here, the Redskins still need to overcome the mis-management & bad decision making by Dan Snyder & Bruce Allen
Snyder's W/L record = 45% (80-96) - Snyder/Allen = 41% (59-84-1)

how great is this - the Vikings paid Cousins $84M and they aren't any better ...

AND there are some that are wondering if this signing was a mistake - are you freaking kidding me

Kirk Cousins was always just a good NFL QB whose value increased because of what the Redskins FO did - NOT because of his play on the field
