Cousins, Diggs fly past Eagles in Vikings' 38-20 win

Kirk Cousins threw to Stefon Diggs for three of his four touchdowns, racking up a season-high 333 passing yards as the Minnesota Vikings ravaged the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in a 38-20 victory Sunday.

After Week 1, Mike Zimmer said this version of Everson Griffen reminds him of the DE in Pro Bowl form. That hasn't slowed at all through six games. The five pressures Griffen created in the 1st half are tied for his most in any game this season, per ESPN Stats and Info. He also closed the half with an interception on a fake field goal.

The Eagles replacement corners have been no match for Kirk Cousins, giving the Vikings a 24-10 lead over Philadelphia at halftime. Cousins has looked fantastic, completing 12-of-17 passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns - two to Stefon Diggs that traveled 50+ yards and a 6-yard fade to Adam Thielen in the first quarter. The interception tied to Cousins' stat line was on Diggs, who let a perfectly placed pass slip thru his hands and bounce off his helmet.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs is already up to 135 yards receiving and two TDs on four receptions. Minnesota is using aggressive, first down play-action calls today to set up QB Kirk Cousins on deep ball throws. And the Eagles CBs can't match the speed of Diggs on the outside.

Vikings inactives: Kentrell Brothers (hamstring/wrist), Ben Gedeon (concussion), Josh Kline (foot), Dru Samia, Oli Udoh, Jalyn Holmes, Armon Watts. Minnesota has seven active offensive linemen so they're not up against the numbers game, but it's interesting to see that the only interior lineman they have as depth is Brett Jones given Dakota Dozier is set to fill in at right guard for Josh Kline and Dru Samia in inactive.

Kirk Cousins on play-action in first half today: 7-9, 145 yards. He had 197 play-action yards combined over first four weeks.

Vikings take an 18-7 lead into halftime against the Giants. Hasn't been a perfect game with fumbles and penalties early on, but Kirk Cousins looks far better with this game plan that's actually achieving balance than he did last week. Cousins is 19-of-23 for 278 yards and a TD. He's on the verge of breaking a 9-game streak where he hadn't thrown for 300 yards.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

INACTIVES: Mackensie Alexander, Kentrell Brothers, Davion Davis, Oli Udoh, Hercules Mata'afa, Armon Watts and Brett Jones. For a second straight week the Vikings are going with Jalyn Holmes as depth at 3T.
