Post by Cliff » Fri Oct 26, 2018 10:30 am

This week’s quarterback rankings are in, and Kirk Cousins is in the top 10 once again.

NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal placed Cousins at No. 7 on his list and spoke highly of the Vikings QB’s ability to get the ball downfield. Rosenthal wrote:

Cousins has thrown for 12 touchdowns with no interceptions on passes that have traveled more than 10 air yards, according to Next Gen Stats, making him perhaps the most effective deep-ball thrower in football this year.

Through seven games, Cousins has completed 70 percent of his passes. He is 210-of-300 passing for 2,162 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions with a passer rating of 101.8.

Drew Brees, whom the Vikings will face at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday Night Football, was ranked No. 1 by Rosenthal after his performance against Baltimore.
