Before the offseason even got underway, the Vikings were already considered to be one of the top teams the Rams would have to face in 2018 after Mike Zimmer‘s squad fell one win short of earning a trip to the Super Bowl last January. What Case Keenum was able to accomplish in Minnesota last season was nothing short of amazing, but the offense received a major improvement at the quarterback position with one of the biggest signings free agency had to offer in Kirk Cousins.
Originally, the chances of Cousins ended up on a team like the Vikings seemed slim since early signs pointed to the team sticking with Keenum, that is until they allowed him to hit the open market. By making this decision, Minnesota all of a sudden became a surprise team that could be in the running to win the Cousins sweepstakes, which would eventually happen.
As great as Keenum was, the thought of Cousins in an offense like this is going to work wonders during the 2018 season, and will certainly be a major test for the Rams’ defense. Then again, when looking at the new duo at cornerback consisting of Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, Los Angeles will hopefully be ready.
