Kirk Cousins is confusing. So are the Minnesota Vikings. It’s hard to believe in them because, well, everyone knows, especially if you love this team, that they’re just like an old girlfriend that you know is bad for you. You just can’t leave them alone though, can you?
Football fans just keep flirting with the Vikings knowing full well that, when it comes down to it, they’re going to let you down when you need them to be there for you, just like that old girlfriend. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to gauge this Vikings team. One can’t love them enough to believe in them, but you can’t ignore those last couple of weeks either.
The Vikings will be a factor come playoff time.

Speaking of complicated, here comes the Kansas City Chiefs. Unless you’re the fan of a rival, how can you hate this team? If anybody deserves a Super Bowl, it’s Andy Reid. He just keeps on adding to a potential Hall of Fame resume, and at times, everyone forgets how good he is and how long he has been.
That’s easy to do though. He’s come up short in too many games. He’s mismanaged the clock too many times at the end of halves, and come on. Doesn’t it just feel like the Chiefs are cursed?
Well, maybe that’s holding the past against them, but here’s what’s been obvious in recent seasons. They’re talented, on offense anyway. Their quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the reigning MVP, and if he’s healthy, this Chiefs team can beat anybody. Judging by what was seen last week, they can also win if he isn’t.
