The records are disparate and the trajectories in 2023 (at this point) are not the same, but you cannot blame the quarterbacks. When it comes to the Week 5 game scheduled for Sunday afternoon between the Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium, both Patrick Mahomes and Kirk Cousins should provide plenty of entertainment.

Both Mahomes and Cousins were featured on the Netflix docu-series Quarterback earlier this summer, so audiences should already feel a closer kinship with both if they've seen the popular show. That said, their production also speaks for itself.

For Mahomes, the reigning league MVP needs no introduction as a rising global superstar and the face of the sport after the retirement of Tom Brady. It also doesn't hurt that he is under center for the Chiefs, the most consistent team of the last decade in the NFL with seven consecutive division titles, five consecutive AFC Championship games hosted and two Super Bowl wins in the last four years.

But let's not forget just how good Cousins can be. In fact, earlier this summer, Mahomes called Cousins the most underrated QB in the game today. “I mean, if you look at Kirk over here, man. Wins every year. Puts up great stats. Did it in Washington. Does it in Minnesota. Talk to any other quarterbacks in the league, and they’re gonna say the same thing.”

Both teams will be hoping to at least slow the other quarterback enough to earn a much-needed win in this non-conference matchup, and it will be interesting to see how the defenses look coming into Week 5.
