Kirk Cousins, QB (MIN)

Falls short in San Francisco

Cousins completed 20 of 32 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the 49ers.

He hit Adam Thielen for a pair of first-half scores, but the Vikings' passing game fell quiet in the second half and Cousins couldn't put together a game-tying drive during a scoreless fourth quarter. The 33-year-old QB has tossed multiple touchdowns in four straight games, a streak he'll look to extend -- albeit with better results -- in Week 13 against the Lions.
