Cousins Discusses Gaudy Passing Stats, Thielen's Hot Start, Larry Fitzgerald Jr

October 10, 2018 02:54 PM

At his weekly media availability, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins downplayed his gaudy passing numbers through five games that have him on pace for a rare 5,000-yard season.

He was also reluctant to assume he Adam Thielen are at peak efficiency, despite Thielen becoming the only player in NFL history to clear 100 receiving yards int he first five games of a season.


They're signs Cousins thinks there are ways to squeeze more horsepower out of the Vikings offense.
