NFL Power Rankings Week 6: Titans drop after embarrassing loss to Bills
14. Minnesota Vikings (3-2)
Recap: The Minnesota Vikings needed a bounce-back game from their passing attack after some turmoil surfaced following last week’s loss, and they got just that. Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-27 passes for 306 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the New York Giants. Granted, the Giants defense isn’t exactly stout, but it was just what the doctor ordered for the Vikings air game.
Pros: Cousins had his best game of the season, and Adam Thielen went over 100 yards for the first time in 2019. Dalvin Cook continues to be a monster for Minnesota after he totaled over 200 yards, including 132 on the ground.
Cons: Stefon Diggs has been unhappy with his role this season and might want out of Minnesota. The Vikings didn’t do much to solve that issue in Week 5, as Diggs saw just four targets that he turned into three catches for 44 yards.
Outlook: While it remains to be seen if the Vikings will be able to overcome Cousins’ struggles and Diggs’ frustration, Week 6 presents another blow-up spot against a suspect Philadelphia Eagles secondary.
