Vikings' Gary Kubiak takes the blame for Kirk Cousins' poor performance

Count Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak among those accepting a chunk of the blame for Kirk Cousins' awful play during the Vikings' 0-2 start this season.

"I've got to find some room for him is the best way to put it," Kubiak said Thursday. "We had some plays last week where he had no place to go with the ball. Me sitting there looking at what we're doing and saying, 'OK, we've got to get some people open in these situations vs. coverages.' "

Last season Cousins ranked fourth in passer rating at 107.4. He currently weighs in at 34th — in a 32-team league — at 61.
