ESPN had a stat that Cousins is being pressured on 34% of his drop backs this year.  Thatโ€™s up 5% from last season. 

As for the play action attempts, he only has 6 that were thrown 15 or more yards downfield. 

What this tells me is teams are selling out in run defense to get after Cousins and stop the pass.   While Cook is getting his on the ground, the Vikings are 31st our of 32 teams in passing yards per game.  

As a team, they are also 3rd in the league in terms of penalty yardage.
