For a second consecutive week, the Seattle Seahawks will face off against another quarterback from the 2012 draft class. This time it will be Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins.

Cousins is a familiar foe for Seattle. He and the Seahawks face off with such regularity he might as well be a de facto division opponent. This season will mark the fifth straight year in a row Seattle will have to defend him. Last season I remarked he became the first non-division QB to receive a preview piece for three consecutive years. He now extends this streak to four.

Cousins is 1-4 all time against the Seahawks, with his lone win being a 17-14 victory where Seattle’s kicker Blair Walsh missed three field goals. Since then, the Seahawks have proven to be too much for Cousins to overcome.

This season, Cousins is off to a hot start. With 595 passing yards, five touchdowns, no interceptions and 71% through the first two games, he is hardly the reason to blame for Minnesota’s 0-2 start.

Similar to Ryan Tannehill and the Titans, Minnesota’s offense is run-centric with Cousins playing a complimentary role. But make no mistake, Cousins is more than competent as a signal caller. The Seahawks will need to make sure he doesn’t ruin another Sunday afternoon.
