A Mix of R&B and Gospel
For Vikings fans accustomed to years of stomach-churning pass protection — dating back, more or less, to Jerry Hughes breezing past Matt Kalil in the second game of the 2013 preseason — the sight of Kirk Cousins standing in the pocket last Friday night, almost unperturbed as he surveyed his receivers, had to amount to a sugar rush.
None of the Vikings’ four quarterbacks was sacked in last Friday’s win over the Saints, marking the first time the team has gone without giving up a sack in a preseason game since its final exhibition game against the Broncos in 2010.
What’s more, the team gave up just four pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. The Saints’ only pressure against the Vikings’ first-team offense, which came when Saints linebacker Demario Davis beat fullback C.J. Ham on a third-down blitz, went for naught when Cousins evaded Davis and scrambled for a 10-yard gain.
