Vikings QB Cousins knows importance of game vs. Seattle

December 06, 2018 02:37 PM

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins knows the importance of the final four games of the regular season. He's not making any excuses and he believes the team can certainly be much better than they've played in recent weeks.

"To say can we catch fire? Can we hit our stride? Maybe be more consistent, can we start achieving at our potential consistently? Yes. I think that's what we're looking to do. I think we can point to some times where we've underachieved, not because we weren't giving effort or preparation, just haven't been able to sustain the level of potential in this locker room play in and play out. I think that's what we are challenging ourselves to do in this final stretch of four games," said Cousins Thursday in the locker room.


Of course in order for the Vikings to have any success on defense they'll need to find a way to try and slow down Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Cousins got a first hand look on how Wilson ticks when they spent time together before making it to the NFL.

"Well the time I spent with him has been training for the draft and then being teammates in the Senior Bowl. We spent a lot of time together and that's when I could see how intelligent he was, his work habits, his leadership and command, you could see all the traits that's enabled him to have great success in the NFL. So I think all the guys who who trained with him in Florida aren't surprised about what he's able to do," Cousins added.

The Vikings and Seahawks will play on Monday Night Football in Seattle. The last time the Vikings won in Seattle against the Seahawks was back on October 22, 2006 when they won 31-13.
