Kirk Cousins Gets Iced Out Again

Kirk Cousins Is Really Starting to Let His Hair Down

In what’s becoming a weekly tradition, Minnesota Vikings quarterback again was donning some new ice following a victory. Fresh off a win against the Miami Dolphins, Kevin O’Connell’s signal caller was again looking too clean with some jewelry from teammates.

Following the game, cornerback Chandon Sullivan posted a video to his Instagram showing off Kirk Cousins rocking more chains than the Vikings moved on third down. The Vikings signal called is decked out in diamonds and wearing sunglasses as he continues to be a favorite amongst his peers.

Obviously, this remains funny as wearing blinged out chains couldn’t be further from the personality fans have come to know from Cousins, but it goes down as one of those “You like that!” moments and it’s hard to be anything but joyful about the sight.

Cousins started slow for Minnesota against Miami, especially with running back Dalvin Cook continually being stuffed in the running game. He turned it around as the game went on, however, and O’Connell was able to orchestrate a gameplan to get Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson open.

When the dust settled, Cousins would end up going 20-for-30 with 175 yards and two touchdowns. He did connect with Jefferson for a 47-yard gain, but much of the day was focused on shorter routes and checkdowns. Cousins went with what he had in front of him, and the Vikings moved the ball methodically on the five drives in which they did not go three-and-out.

Maybe Cousins will go jewelry shopping for himself over the bye week, but I’d imagine he’s fine with the time off and some relaxation instead. The only question is whose jewelry Cousins will put on in Week 8 if Minnesota can knock off the Arizona Cardinals at home.
