Sunday's victory over the Green Bay Packers proved to be costly for the Minnesota Vikings. In the win, star quarterback Kirk Cousins went down with a serious injury - he has since been diagnosed with a torn Achillies. Just like that, his season is over.
Well, the Vikings front office has wasted no time in finding a new starting quarterback. On Tuesday, deadline day in the NFL, Minnesota traded for journeyman signal-caller Joshua Dobbs.
Dobbs has been making plays for the Arizona Cardinals, but with Kyler Murray set to return from his torn ACL, the NFC West side could afford to let Dobbs leave town to suit up for another team. This is good news for the Vikes.
On the season, Dobbs has thrown for 1,569 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He may not be a superstar by any means, but fans are excited to see what he can do the rest of the season.
