Kirk Cousins Did Perfect In Vikings Debut
Tuesday, August 14, 2018 3:01 PM America
Kirk Cousins' playing time on Saturday night was short, and boy, was it sweet.
The anointed man under center looked every bit as advertised in his lone drive versus the Denver Broncos, completing all four of his pass attempts for 42 yards and a touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings in their 42-28 win. The yards and perfect completion percentage don't quite jump off the page, but the tape will, length aside.
Cousins was confident, precise and looked as comfortable as a new quarterback will ever look. Buoyed by two 20-plus-yard runs by Latavius Murray, Cousins was free to test things out with Stefon Diggs, and all three worked out. Cousins first found Diggs for six yards to open the drive, and then made a key completion, connecting with Diggs on a perfectly placed pass over the shoulder of Bradley Roby for a 28-yard gain. It was the first throw that showed why Minnesota handed the keys and a fully guaranteed contract to Cousins.
“I thought it was a great first drive, a great start of the preseason,” Cousins said. “It was good to get our offense out there in a game setting. … It’s great to get the run game going, the pass game going and just get off to a good start.”
Cousins looked especially good throwing to Diggs. Three of his four connections were to Diggs for 35 yards, including a 28-yard strike down the right sideline.
“He’s a good quarterback, he makes some great throws,’’ Diggs said. “It’s still a growing process (between the two). We’re growing as we’re going. I wouldn’t say it’s not done, so developing that chemistry is really key to just making the plays when they’re called, him giving a chance and me making a play.”
Cousins said the work is paying off between the two since the start of spring drills in April. That was a month after Cousins signed his three-year, $84 million contract after spending the past three seasons with Washington.
I have tried to communicate with you, but invalid, I envy my desk Li Moumou,
his mediocre performance, but talking about parents are enraptured, I envy those

Three months ago, a hundred days after the oath, one afternoon after school, the
school radio came Hackberry song: "When you are still still fantasy / your
tomorrow, it will be okay or worse for me, Another day / I have ruined my
everything, I just want to leave forever / I have fallen into endless darkness,
want to struggle can not extricate themselves / I used to like you like him like
wildflowers / desperate desire, cry also laugh Ordinary with ... ... "I walked
more slowly, went to the school gate suddenly tears ran, that day I simply cried
in the lake like a dark faint black hero, crying I quietly back to the classroom
late study hall. Mom, this is what you do not know.
Some people criticized the contemporary Chinese education, saying that the
education of genius, and the so-called genius education results most of the
people is not an ordinary qualification to become a genius, but he twisted into
a low-grade deformed children. I asked myself I was not a deformed child,
mother, I feel lucky, but I am disturbed that I was like in the volume of
education in this, I do not know is my tomorrow, it will be okay? Our tomorrow,
will it please?
Mom, I'm still willing to test a higher score, use it to return you. However,
after tomorrow, no matter how many points I test, you and my father can happily
celebrate my high school graduation, okay?
