Kirk Cousins ​​is said to sit for Vikings vs Bears in NFC

The Vikings locked into No. 6 seed in the NFC play-off round next week, knocked out of math from the NFC North division title after losing to Green Bay Packer last week Nothing to play in Week 17, Minnesota has the elegance of a beginner to enter the card game.

Minnesota will rest most of its beginners for Sunday’s game against Chicago Bear, by ESPN’s Courtney Cronin. One of the starters will be Kirk’s cousin midfielder, who will end his regular season with a 10-5 record, completing 69.1% of his passes in 3,603 yards, 26 times. touch the ball and six interceptions to assess 107.4 passers-by (a high career). The cousin has started 79 games in a row since the beginning of the 2015 season, the third longest running series in the NFL.

Not playing Cousins ​​could be a problem for the Vikings, who played one of the worst games of their year in the 23-10 defeat to Packers. The Viking attack was fought without Dalvin Cook, with 139 low-season yards and only 87 yards in failure.

Minnesota Vikings only went 4 for 15 on the third down and got the ball just 22 hours 28 minutes. Perhaps playing the beginners in a pointless game will get the Vikings into the rhythm of the playoffs, where they will face Packers, New Orleans Saints or Seattle Seahawks on the road If the Packers defeat the Lion Detroit, the Vikings will play the Seahawks if Seattle upsets the 49ers Sunday.

Starting on behalf of a cousin will be Sean Mannion, who threw just 53 passes in the NFL, completing 62.3% of them for 253 yards and one interception. He has only played five snaps for the Vikings this year because Sunday will be his first NFL since 2017.

Cook is listed as out and rookie Alexander Mattison is questioned by rule for Sunday’s game, which could lead to the Vikings starting Mike Boone for the second straight week. Boone had 11 bearing in 28 yards in his first career last week.

With all the Vikings’ injuries, resting might be the best way to get ready for the playoffs … whatever Minnesota looks like the last time Cousins ​​and the startups get on the pitch.

Dalvin Cook gives tremendous boost to the Viking play-off prospects

Week 10 edicates a proof ground to the Vikings, who have entered and exited the AT&T Stadium holding No. 6 seed in the NFC play-off picture after taking the 28-24 win against Dallas cowboy.

For the Vikings (7-3), it was a big victory at the critical moment of the season, and they succeeded at what had failed them earlier. Minnesota defeated a good team (Dallas, 5-4, on Sunday leading NFC East) on the road and overcame its own pitfalls, especially on defense.

Certainly, the Vikings will remain the No. 6 seed regardless of the outcome, but Sunday night’s victory not only shattered the notion of the Kirk cousin quarter-final in the biggest games , it gave Minnesota a preview of the type of competition it would have to beat if it achieved the feat.

Minnesota is locked in the current playoff picture, but there are issues that need to be addressed if you want to keep that position and move deep into January. On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings took the first step to get there and reach gets an important place compared to other NFC hopes like Carolina Panthers (5-4), Philadelphia Eagles (5-4) and Los Angeles Rams (5-4).

Superman attack galore

You can chalk this game to “The Special Kyle Rudolph” or “Dalvin Cook Day” and both will determine exactly what attack activity is in Minnesota. Rudolph’s two-yard touches in the drives returning in the first quarter allowed the Vikings to jump to a 14-0 lead and trigger an overnight attack on one night they would be without Adam Thielen (tendon injury on stilts).

ook recorded a rushing 100-yard day against one of the tournament’s best running defenders, and the statement that Minnesota made with its running game took place at its pivotal point.

On the last touch, the Vikings ran 11 times, culminating in a 2-yard touch run by Cook, followed by Rudolph’s 2-point conversion catch. The Vikings ripped five steps from 10 yards or more on Sunday, which links with Dallas the second most allowed this season.

Defensive defenses

Trae Waynes’ is absent for a nightmare outing for Mike Hughes. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, this is the biggest goal of any player this season.

Hughes gave up 10 reception times in 139 yards and one touch, and allowed a third and third number, including two-thirds and 12s on separate touchdown drives, and one-third and 14 that in the game.

Overall, Minnesota allowed Dallas to convert nine of its 15 attempts down to its third, a rate worsened by failing to pass the pace and pushed up the middle because Linval Joseph was absent due to injury.

Why the Minnesota Vikings should look into a trade for Eagles’ Nelson Agholor

The Philadelphia Eagles are a complete mess on and off of the field. Thus, making it possible that they could become buyers and sellers at the October 29th trade deadline. One team that should be aggressive at the deadline is the Minnesota Vikings.

The team is in the market for a big-play wideout and they could be looking to move Nelson Agholor to make room for someone else. In the event that Agholor is made available, the Vikings should be a team that expresses interest in the wide receiver.

Agholor is in the final year of his rookie contract after the Eagles picked up his fifth-year option prior to last season. Therefore, he would be a rental for the Vikings for the remainder of their schedule. But they are in need of some depth at the wide receiver position.

While Minnesota has gotten off to a 6-2 start, their passing attack has finally gotten into a rhythm. Kirk Cousins is spreading the ball around to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and his two tight ends; Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith. Even Dalvin Cook has been a consistent receiving threat out of the backfield.

With that being said, the team could definitely use a third receiver in their offense. Currently, Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell have served as the team’s third and fourth options at the position.

Of course, Treadwell has been labeled a bust as he was a first-round pick by the Vikings in 2016. Additionally, Johnson is an undrafted rookie and has been an inconsistent option with his limited opportunities.

As for Agholor, he has served as one of Philadelphia’s top pass-catchers since DeSean Jackson went down with an injury in Week 2. Over that span, USC product has caught just 23 passes for 243 yards and three touchdowns.

Since being drafted by the Eagles with the 20th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, Agholor has been criticized for his effort on the field. There has even been a fan who poked fun at Agholor at the expense of catching babies out of a burning building.

At this point, it would be best for the Eagles and Agholor to part ways. Especially with him set to become a free agent at the end of the 2019 season. A wide-receiver needy team like the Vikings would be a perfect fit for the inconsistent wide receiver.

Sometimes a change of scenery can light a spark under a player who hasn’t been able to put everything together. In addition, putting Agholor alongside Diggs and Thielen could help him develop into a formidable receiver.
