2. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

Remember when I said earlier that team's win-loss record can't be the only determining factor when it comes to evaluating a QB, but it has to fit somewhere. The Minnesota Vikings' record is why Kirk Cousins is not ranked No. 1.

There are plenty of knocks on Cousins over the years, most often due to his failure in the postseason. But if you look at the numbers he's put up this season, it looks like Cousins could be on his way to another Pro Bowl.

Cousins is 96-for-138 for 1,075 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions. Cousins leads the league in completions, total passing yards, passing touchdowns, and yards per game.

While Green Bay Packers fans won't want to admit it, Kirk Cousins is a darn good quarterback. Now, there was a huge mistake in the waning moments of the Vikings game last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Cousins and Company had a chance to win the game late, but an interception in the end zone doomed the Minnesota Vikings to start the season 0-3. Jordan Love and the Packers will get an up close and personal view of Cousins and the Vikings in Week 8.
