Past midpoint of big contract, Cousins hitting his stride

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) In the aftermath of the 54-yard touchdown pass that Kirk Cousins threw to Stefon Diggs early in the fourth quarter that accelerated a furious comeback by the Minnesota Vikings, the always animated wide receiver was as fired up as ever as he stalked the sideline and screamed encouragement to almost everyone in his path.

Then the Metallica hit "Enter Sandman" started roaring on the stadium sound system, the in-house camera crew zoomed in on Diggs as he bobbed up and down like a boxer entering the ring, the decibel level spiked even higher, and Denver was in trouble.

Cousins, meanwhile, calmly waited for his next turn with the level-headed, CEO-style demeanor he strives to present. The rally was completed soon after with a fourth touchdown by the Vikings in as many second-half drives for a 27-23 win that raised their record to 8-3 and kept them from entering the bye week on a bad note.
