The fumble led to a touchdown and gave Minnesota the lead. After the Vikings got the ball first in overtime, Cousins ​​had a game-winning first-and-goal opportunity at the Bills’ 2-yard line with a touchdown. Instead, he was sacked for a 10-yard loss and threw an incomplete pass — which led to a field goal and gave Buffalo a chance to win the game.

The Vikings won because of Bill’s mistakes, not because of Cousins ​​and his play. They are a Super Bowl contender, but Cousins ​​will need to play better to get the first title the franchise is seeking.

This is a bad football team that is not getting better. Remember, the Raiders made the playoffs last season and added Chandler Jones And Davante Adams In their list. McDaniels needs to be let go — he’s not an NFL head coach.
