After his amazing season so far, many experts and fans are considering him a potential MVP candidate. The statistics don’t lie, as Cousins posted some incredible numbers, which helped his team, particularly in the fourth quarter.

Kirk Cousins’ amazing season could lead him to his first MVP award

According to the latest statistics, Cousins is leading the NFL with the most fourth-quarter comebacks in the season, i.e. 6. Apart from that, he also has 6 game-winning drives this season, which is the most.

Moreover, he threw 2760 yards for 17 touchdowns in 11 games; he also has 2 rushing TDs as well. In terms of personal statistics, his last season was far better. However, his team is performing really well this season and could go all the way.

Certainly, his numbers are not insane like Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen. But his team is doing everything right at the moment and Cousins is also playing his part. They could be a surprise team in the Super Bowl like the Bengals were last year. If Cousins win the Super Bowl, he could snatch the MVP award from Allen or Mahomes or any other player.

NFL fans react to the Cousins’ MVP conversation

Sunday Night Football posted the MVP question and fans had their say about the whole matter. One fan thinks Cousins should not be in the MVP conversation unless he reaches the Super Bowl.

Another fan expressed the same opinion, as the fan believes Cousins is not raising the bar with his performances.

One fan felt sad for Cousins, as that person thinks Cousins should be in the MVP conversation; however, he doesn’t have the statistics.

One fan gave credit to the young wide receiver Justin Jefferson for the success of the Vikings.

Another fan thinks Jefferson should become the MVP.

One Twitter user feels Cousins is kind of underrated.

Interestingly, a few fans backed Cousins to get the MVP award for his great nature on and off the field.
