Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings vs. Atlanta Falcons
Another quarterback who has been underestimated this preseason is Cousins, yet everyone wanted a piece of this offense, whether it’s Adam Thielen, Dalvin Cook or Stefon Diggs. All of those pieces can’t be desirable if the quarterback was so bad and that’s why Cousins is strong start this week. He has an offense at full strength surrounding him and the Falcons, who are now healthier than most of 2018, can try and restore the reputation of their defense which was finished ranked 27th against the pass. Even if they do present a challenge, the Vikings defense is going to give Cousins and company a handful more extra possessions to work with.
