Kirk Cousins and his six-year-old son are injured in the game against the Oakland Packers, which is sure to pump up fans, January 1, 2024
In a must-win game for Minnesota (7-8), Cousins, 35, led team supporters in their customary 'Skol Vikings' chant before kickoff. The chant will recall fans of Iceland's ultimate Viking chant at Euro 2016. Sadly, Cousins and his commotion didn't carry to the field, where the Packers took the lead by halftime at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, 23-3. After defeating his former team, the Washington Commanders, in Washington, D.C., Cousins first reveled victories without a shirt last season.

In the stead, the Vikings drafted Joshua Dobbs from the Arizona Cardinals to try to make a playoff push in Cousins' absence.

The oft-fined 35-year-old was seen leading with his helmet to launch a brutal head shot on Minnesota quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who faltered on the field. At the Vikings' 30-yard line, no flag was raised and McMillian jumped on the loose ball at the 30-yard line, Denver's second straight opening-drive takeaway. Dobbs went straight to the hospital, but he didn't miss any snaps.
