Your team has added the player they believe will push them back into the Super Bowl for the first time since 1977. Minnesota maintains one of the best defenses in the National Football League and Cousins will have plenty of weapons to throw to in the passing game. He also tied for the team lead with five rushing touchdowns. He'll cash in with the Broncos. He also threw 27 touchdowns and only 13 picks. His last-second throw to Stefon Diggs stunned the Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.
