Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 36-of-49 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Cousins played a turnover-free game against the Bengals despite the overtime loss, connecting with Adam Thielen for two touchdowns on 10 targets. The offensive line allowed three sacks, creating pressure that forced Cousins to frequently dump short passes off to Dalvin Cook, as the running back saw seven targets. Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn each saw nine targets from Cousins but failed to find the end zone. He'll need to regroup quickly to face a stingy Cardinals defense on the road in Week 2.
