Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Justin Jefferson met with the media Wednesday morning, via Zoom, at TCO Performance Center in Eagan.


Cousins discussed the passing of running back Dalvin Cook’s father, James, and how the team is behind him, facing the Detroit Lions Sunday, how he feels the game against Detroit is not the last game of this year, but the first game of the 2021 season, how do he looks at the team’s record versus his stats, how he has not missed a game for six straight years, and if he plans to target Jefferson more this game, due to Jefferson only being 47 yards away from breaking Randy Moss rookie record for yards in a year.

Jefferson talked about how his thoughts and prayers are with Cook and his family, what he learned the most this year, how he thought the Viking rookie class, as a whole, looked this year, what it would mean to break Moss’ record, what it was like gifting his mother her dream car on Christmas, what his goals were coming into the year, and if he is focused on winning Offensive Rookie of the Year.
