General News (Mon Oct 19): said after throwing three interceptions in Week 6: "The reality is if the pace I'm on in terms of the interceptions, if that were to continue, I won't finish the season,' Cousins said. 'I won't - you know what I mean? There's a little bit of, you got to improve. Whether it's them telling me, 'Hey, we gotta improve,' or them pulling me; we got to get better. That's what the rest of the season will be about for me is trying to protect the football as best I can. Because when you turn the ball over, it really hurts your chances to win. I know that. I just need to improve as we look ahead to the rest of the season."

Vikings | Kirk Cousins' job on the line? (Mon Oct 19, 11:19 AM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said after throwing three interceptions in Week 6: 'The reality is if the pace I'm on in terms of the interceptions, if that were to continue, I won't finish the season,' Cousins said. 'I won't - you know what I mean? There's a little bit of, you got to improve. Whether it's them telling me, 'Hey, we gotta improve,' or them pulling me; we got to get better. That's what the rest of the season will be about for me is trying to protect the football as best I can. Because when you turn the ball over, it really hurts your chances to win. I know that. I just need to improve as we look ahead to the rest of the season.'

Our View: We'll see what kind of changes the Vikings offense makes during their Week 7 bye. They come back in Week 8 in a big game against the Packers and Cousins should perform like a QB2 for Fantasy GMs. Getting RB Dalvin Cook back in Week 8 will greatly help this offense and the performance of Cousins.

Vikings | Kirk Cousins throws three TDs, three INTs (Sun Oct 18, 06:06 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 24-for-36 for 343 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

Our View: Cousins was great during garbage time for the second time this year, but in the first half his play was simply garbage. The Vikings have run their course with him at quarterback, but they signed him to an extension in the offseason, so it will be a story to follow this offseason since Nick Foles proved that most starting quarterbacks with a track record of any success can be dealt to a needy team. The 49ers make sense as a potential 2021 destination.
