What did they say… “Kirk fought tonight”

Vikings quarterback, Kirk Cousins: “I think coming late maybe we’ve had to throw a little more times than we would have liked, and we didn’t keep the balance like we’d like to be.

“Part of the challenge is that we didn’t stay on the field, we didn’t get enough plays, so these three and the early singers aren’t the way we want to start.

“I think their defense is commendable. They did a good job with the rush and the cover, and the combination made it difficult for us.”

Vikings trainer, Kevin O’Connell: “I thought Kirk [Cousins] Killer tonight.

“I’ve put him in some tough situations, and I think our overall attacking philosophy, when we don’t get to activate those things, it puts a lot of pressure on the midfielder, and that’s where I put that back in 100 per cent who I am.”
