Vikings QB Cousins takes OC DeFilippo firing 'personally'

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) When the Minnesota Vikings went all-in on Kirk Cousins as their long-sought franchise player last spring, they paired him with a new offensive coordinator considered to be part of the current wave of up-and-coming quarterback developers and innovative play-callers putting a strong imprint on the NFL.

The partnership with John DeFilippo that had so much potential lasted nine months.

Cousins and his Vikings teammates were doused this week with the cold shower of coach Mike Zimmer's decision to fire DeFilippo after just 13 regular-season games, the latest dose of the reality of this cutthroat league as well as a sobering reminder that their lagging performance ultimately cost him the job.
