Vikes’ Cousins knew Rodgers was going to lead the Packers back against Bears

What happened last Sunday night at Lambeau Field was truly amazing. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who was carted off to the locker room in the first quarter after injuring his left knee, returned and brought the Packers back from a 20-point deficit to defeat the Bears 24-23.

While some might have been shocked by the comeback, Vikings QB Kirk Cousins was not.

“Very impressive. All the way around. The throws, the way he extends plays, the toughness he showed. No surprise,” Cousins said this week. “I found myself sitting on my couch as I watched, saying to my family and friends that I was watching with, ‘He is probably going to bring them back.’ Watching him for years now, knowing what he is capable of doing. Sure enough, he did. You’re really not surprised because you know what he is capable of.”

The Vikings travel to Lambeau to face the Packers on Sunday. Rodgers, who did not practice all week, is listed as questionable for the game.
