Vikings, without a doubt. Adding Cousins to an already seriously talented roster puts them in Super Bowl mode. The way their D is built, however, it is imperative they get home field advantage in the playoffs. They cannot afford to play on the grass in Philly, or even LA or GB and perform at full capacity. If they have to go to ATL or NO, they can do it, but the way their D is built for speed, they need solid field conditions.
Rodgers heroics set up an early showdown at Lambeau versus the Vikings. Can Cousins rise to the occasion? I think so, but it is never easy to beat Rodgers at Lambeau. Minnesota has the better roster, by far, but Cousins has to outduel Rodgers to get the win. This is why they backed up the Brinks truck for Cousins.
It’s not a must-win for either team, obviously, but the Vikings could use the win. After a home game against the hapless Bills in Week 3, the Vikings have back to back road games — Eagles and Rams. That’s tough.
Vikings kicker goes 0-3 in FG’s including missing a 35 yarder as time expired in OT. Vikings and Packers tie 29-29. Cousins had a monster game, but didn’t get the win. It should be noted the Packers kicker missed a 52 yard FG as time expired in regulation.
Much needed win for the Vikings in Philly. They survived the first five weeks, with road games at GB, LA Rams, Philly. Vikings and Packers now both 2-2-1, with the tie against each other. The Bears and Lions look like they will be factors this year, so this division might be an unexpected free-for-all. Vikings still the most talented team in the division, IMO.
