11. Minnesota Vikings
Recap: I went back and forth on where to rank the Vikings so many times.
Glass half full, the Vikings lost on a last second kick against the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in a game where Chris Jones came back from injury and made a key play. Kirk Cousins put up three TDs and no INTs as he continues to make the case for being worth his contract and the defense had five sacks.
Glass half empty, Cousins only completed 50% of his passes for a measly 5.8 yards per attempt and Dalvin Cook was largely bottled up on the ground by a banged up Kansas City defense. Not only that but the Chiefs somehow scored 26 with Matt Moore in at QB and he had more yards on fewer attempts than Kirk Cousins.
Ultimately this feels right.
Outlook: The Vikings have a tough schedule ahead and 10 wins seems probably but I wouldn’t guarantee it. Is that going to be enough to get into the post season?
