Eric Eager and Nick Olson join Jayson Brown to discuss our win over the Cowboys, scripted plays, our epic screen game, and more.

This episode begins with our welcoming Nick back to show after his one week hiatus and our discussing the joys of being on the winning side of this close game, especially after the Kansas City loss. The picture of Flipmazzi below best personifies how we’re feeling.

Eric was happy to (humble) brag about his prediction of Dallas being “fraudulent” coming true while admitting that their baffling desire to force feed an ineffective Ezekiel Elliott certainly helped our cause.

We moved our discussion along to discuss the effectiveness of the Vikings scripted plays in which we exploited their coverage deficiencies at the linebacker position to get our Kyle Rudolph and Dalvin going in the passing game. Nick gave Stefanski and Kubiak some serious and deserved love for the epic Vikings screen game.

more love for the Vikings screen game coming up...

As always we talked Kirk Cousins and his career year. While Eric noted nothing in the Vikings fundamentals suggest a collapse in this season, we discussed the Rams as a cautionary tale by comparing Kirk Cousins and Jared Goff (spoiler: Kirk is better than Jared).

We rounded out the show with a discussion on whether “momentum” in football is real or an illusion.
