Kirk Cousins and his Minnesota Vikings acted the part of a comedy show Sunday night against the New Orleans Saints. It’s not one of those good comedy shows. Rather, the type that causes performers to be booed off the stage.
Having already turned the ball over once in less than three quarters of action, the Vikings still found themselves down by just seven. That’s when Kirk Cousins pulled off his best Blake Bortles impersonation, tossing a pick-six into the hands of Saints cornerback P.J. Williams.

There’s certainly a question whether this interception was on Cousins or star wide receiver Stefon Diggs. As you can see, it appears that Diggs stopped running the route. It resulted in an easy interception for Williams and a 45-yard return to give New Orleans a two-touchdown lead.
Cousins entered the game having thrown 14 touchdowns compared to three interceptions on the season. But this is certainly one he wants back.
