Kirk Cousins was happy with the victory http://www.vikingscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-trae-waynes-jersey , of course — But the star quarterback knows the Vikings' offense can be even better.Cousins threw two touchdown passes, Latavius Murray ran for two scores, and the Vikings pulled away in the second half to beat the New York Jets 37-17 on Sunday for their third straight victory."Any time you score 37 points on the road, you're doing something right," Cousins said. "But there are times where it wasn't good enough. We are so grateful for defense and special teams today because it gave us the opportunity to go out and score points."The Vikings (4-2-1) intercepted Jets rookie Sam Darnold three times and also recovered a fumbled snap to help lift them to their first road win against the Jets after losing the first five meetings away from home."We did some good things, but there are a lot of things we can work on," wide receiver Adam Thielen said. "We were not moving the ball enough and there were a lot of plays I want back, but it's always good to get a win."Minnesota couldn't get much going consistently on offense, mostly because of going 2 of 15 on third downs.In his first game against the Jets (3-4) since spurning their massive offer in free agency, Cousins was far from spectacular, but made some big plays late. With the game still hanging in the balance and the Vikings facing fourth-and-8 from the 34, Cousins connected with Aldrick Robinson for a TD to seal it."We had so many opportunities to put that game away earlier in the game, and didn't do it," coach Mike Zimmer said. "We have to overcome ourselves on some of those things."Cousins, 25 of 40 for 241 yards, opted to turn down New York's three-year, $90 million deal in the offseason and instead chose to go to Minnesota, which signed him to a deal worth $6 million less.After Cousins' decision, the Jets turned their attention to the draft Cheap Mike Hughes Jersey , where they selected Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick.As expected, Cousins was the target of criticism of Jets fans and New York-area media."I never read it, so I don't even have any knowledge to process it or incorporate it into my approach," Cousins said. "I believe ignorance is bliss and I try to stay as ignorant as possible."Here are some other things to know about the Vikings' win over the Jets:SAM STRUGGLESIn their first meeting, Cousins came out on top — while Darnold had arguably his worst game on a cold, windy day .The rookie was 17 of 42 for 206 yards with a TD pass to Chris Herndon and a TD run, but was intercepted three times as New York's two-game winning streak ended.After going 6 of 9 for 87 yards and a touchdown with a 135.0 quarterback rating in the opening quarter, Darnold finished with the three INTs and a dismal 34.4 rating."I've just got to find completions," Darnold said. "That's really it. And, we've got to do a better job executing."THIELEN STILL DEALIN'Thielen became the fifth player in NFL history to get at least 100 yards receiving in seven consecutive games, catching nine passes for 110 yards and a touchdown.He reached the milestone with a 21-yard catch in the fourth quarter. He joined Detroit's Calvin Johnson (eight, 2012), Denver's Demaryius Thomas (seven, 2014), Dallas' Michael Irvin (seven, 1995) and Houston's Charley Hennigan (seven, 1961) to accomplish the feat.He and Hennigan are the only players to do so in his team's first seven games to open the season."Stats don't necessarily say how good you played," Thielen said. "I'm looking forward to looking at the film and making sure I continue to get better."THIRD-DOWN TERRORSBoth the Vikings and Jets will need to improve in third-down situations after this one.Minnesota was 2 of 15, while New York was 2 of 13.The Vikings' first conversion didn't come until midway through the third quarter on Thielen's 13-yard catch after being 0 for 8 up to that point. The Jets' first conversion came late in the third on Darnold's 6-yard run on third-and-5.HURTINGJets running back Bilal Powell (neck) and safety Doug Middleton (chest/shoulder) left with injuries and were scheduled to undergo tests.New York could be severely short-handed at safety. Middleton was starting in place of Marcus Maye Cheap Dalvin Cook Jersey , who's sidelined with a broken thumb. That leaves only Jamal Adams and Terrence Brooks as healthy players at the position.Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes left with a sprained ankle, but Zimmer said, "I don't think it's a big deal." Same for linebacker Anthony Barr, who injured a hamstring.WHOOPSJets receiver Robby Anderson apologized for tossing the ball at an official late in the fourth quarter after an incompletion, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty — and a possible fine from the NFL later in the week."It was just frustration and wanting to make a play and us losing a pretty tough game," Anderson said, adding that he didn't intend to hit the official with the ball. "It wasn't anything malicious. It was just a reaction."Wednesday Open Thread: October 3, 2018 Merry Wednesday, everyone!We’re at the peak of the week, it’s a nice downhill coast into the weekend, and a big game for the purple and gold. I’m not panicking after the rough start. Am I concerned? Sure, especially about the defense, the entire unit is off their game. Does that mean I think the team is suddenly a bottom-third defense? No, that’s absurd. They’ve played poorly, but we’ve seen what they’re capable of doing, and they’ve steadily gotten better for the past four years, so I’m not going to go jump into a volcano because of a few bad games. They’ll right the ship, and they’ll win the NFC North, book it. After they do that Matt Wile Jersey , then we’ll look beyond. It’s gonna be a fun year.Around the DN since our last open thread:Arif posted Norse Code Podcast Episode 248: Breaking Down the Breakdown. That reminds me, I had a mechanic buddy in Mississippi, his nickname is Brokedown. True story.Eric takes A Brief Look At Vikings-Eagles History.Kentrell Brothers can join the team once again, as his suspension has officially ended, per Chris.Latavius Murray is ready, he says bring on the Eagles and their fans, from Skelly10.Chris has a roundup of all the major power rankings as of week four, let’s see how far the Vikes have fallen.Eric has a spot where you can find all the latest updates surrounding the Vikings-Eagles matchup.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the league:At Vikings.com, they highlight the linebackers in Beyond the Gridiron, Wobby opens the Pick 6 Mailbag, and there’s lots more to look through in their media vault.Courtney Cronin looks at the parallels to 2017 as the Vikings find themselves at a crossroads in this young season, with a tough opponent next on the schedule.From the New York Post, Mychal Kendricks has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL after Kendricks pled guilty to Federal charges to insider trading. Meanwhile, still employed in the NFL is Gregggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg Williams, who paid his players to injure players on other teams during live NFL games. Luckily for Greggggggggggggggggggggggggggg, he didn’thelp someone steal a few grand. We come to today’s media selection:After reading the Latavius Murray piece, I remembered how much I dislike Philly, and I remembered this rant by Bill Burr while he performed in Philadelphia one night. I wasn’t going to put it up, but then I decided to.BUT.............I’M GOING TO WARN YOU RIGHT NOW THAT THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF NSFW LANGUAGE AND THINGS THAT WILL OFFEND PEOPLE. IF YOU GET OFFENDED EASILY Cheap Kirk Cousins Jersey , YOU PROBABLY DON’T WANT TO WATCH THIS. IF YOU HAVE A CHILD IN THE ROOM, YOU PROBABLY WON’T WANT TO WATCH THIS (until the child isn’t in the room anymore, then you can, unless you get offended easily, THEN YOU PROBABLY WON’T WANT TO WATCH THIS). You’ve been warned. For those of you who have no feelings and want a good laugh, enjoy this rant.Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the head cheese.
