Sunday has simply not been Kirk Cousins' day.
The Vikings passer has been unable to get Minnesota's offense in a rhythm all afternoon long, as they have totaled just three points through the game's first three quarters.
Both Minnesota and Indianapolis entered Sunday's matchup desperate for a victory and to avoid the dreadful 0-2 start. The Colts came ready to play, while Cousins and the Vikings simply...didn't. Indianapolis would go on to win, 28-11.
Cousins' stat line looks worse than the scoreboard does. He completed just 11 passes on the day (on 26 attempts) for 113 yards and no touchdowns. He's thrown three interceptions, too, and also taken a safety.
Cousins, who signed a two-year, $66 million extension with the Vikings in March, found himself trending on Twitter Sunday afternoon, as many analysts and fans were quick to rip the Vikings passer.

Yeah, Cousins will want to bury Sunday's game film as soon as possible.
