Vikings QB Kirk Cousins admitted that the team’s offense was “all over the map” during Sunday’s game against the Jets.

“[It was] all over the map,” Cousins said, via Pro Football Talk. “There were a lot of positives. Any time you score 37 points on the road, you’re doing something right. There were certainly a lot of places that weren’t good enough. When you have special teams giving you good field position and you have a defense giving you the ball back, it probably makes it look better than it really was. That’s complimentary football. That’s team football and we’re so grateful for our defense and special teams with the way they played today because it gave us the opportunities to go back out there and score points.”
