He finished that game with 23 passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
That victory by the Vikings returned the balance in Cousins’ career record.

The former Michigan State standout has a 61-61-2 record after 10 seasons and a game.
His career regular season record is 60-59-2, while his playoff record is 1-2.
The first tie came when he was still with the then-Washington Redskins.
Meanwhile, the second tie happened during his first year in Minnesota in 2018.
Cousins’ best record came in 2019 when he had a 10-5 record.
He also had career-highs of 425 receptions, 4,917 yards, and 35 touchdowns.
Vikings Push For More Victories
If Cousins has his way, he would like to improve his career record.
Cook finished the Green Bay game with 20 carries for 90 yards.
Meanwhile, Jefferson had nine receptions for 184 yards and a touchdown.
Those two players will help improve Cousins’ record to go above average.
Likewise, new head coach Kevin O’Connell has helped unlock their offense and their capabilities.
However, a tough road awaits the Vikings in the coming weeks as they will go up against the Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, and New Orleans Saints.
Despite the challenging schedule, NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin chose Cousins to win this year’s Most Valuable Player award.
It remains to be seen if he will fulfill Irvin’s prediction.
But being considered as a candidate should boost his confidence to do better in the next games.
After all, it’s been two years since the Vikings entered the playoffs.
