But there arguably could have been more from the team to be voted to the all-star game.
NFL.com’s Nick Shook put together a group of Pro Bowl “snubs,” and Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins topped his list.
Let’s start with traditional stats. Cousins has posted the third-highest passer rating in the NFL among quarterbacks with at least 300 attempts this season. Lamar Jackson’s 112.8 rating and Drew Brees 115.3 (boosted by his near-perfect Week 15 outing against Indianapolis) are better than Cousins’ 111.1 mark, and only if we relax the criteria to allow for QBs who have at least 200 attempts (Ryan Tannehill has a 114.6 rating on 239 attempts) does Cousins ranking in the category drop one spot.
