Ankle keeps Giants RB Barkley out for Vikings on Sunday

Kirk Cousins Vikings

NFL3 bold predictions for Vikings QB Kirk Cousins in Week 5 against the Giants

The Minnesota Vikings face-off with the New York Giants Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium with identical 2-2 records.

The Vikings quarterback, who has been under fire in recent days after a slow start this year, played well Sunday, completing 22-of-27 passes for a season-high 306 yards and two touchdowns. Their 64 yards rushing were their fewest since they ran for 47 in the loss to the Titans last season. Kirk Cousins can not be relied on to win games for the Vikings.

"I think it's just that coaching staff in general".

"It's never a good feeling when you lose", Jones said. "I thought it was a very balanced attack today through the pass game and the run game".

The bottom line is the Giants didn't play well enough and they now head to New England for a game against the Super Bowl champion Patriots (5-0) on Thursday night.

And while the secondary has looked better - Xavier Rhodes struggled, surrendering a 35-yard touchdown pass to rookie Darius Slayton - it was a strong outing for the defense as a whole.

"Good pocket presence, strong arm, mobile", Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards said about Jones. Minnesota had their way with the Giants' defense on first and second downs, converting 38 percent of their first and second down passing plays into more first downs.

David Mayo started on the inside with Connelly last week and played well.

The New York Giants' defense was overmatched.

Already without Pro-Bowl running back Saquon Barkley, the Giants lost back-up running back Wayne Gallman due to a concussion against Minnesota, thrusting undrafted rookie running back Jonathan Hilliman into the feature back role.

Every win matters in the National Football League regardless of context, but obviously some wins are more important than others and it's safe to say that Sunday's win against a very beatable Giants team (that was without its star running back in Saquon Barkley) was one of the most important week/game 5 wins in (at least) the recent history of this team.

The Vikings defense limited NY to 211 yards, sacked Jones four times and hit him countless other times. Hilliman led NY with 20 yards rushing on nine carries. Another example of that: The Giants' second drive of the game was about to die on 3rd and 5 from the 45 when the pocket collapsed around him. The Vikings didn't even punt until the first minute of the fourth quarter.
