In Netflix’s groundbreaking new sports series, Quarterback, Netflix aims to revolutionize the way we experience the NFL with an exclusive focus on the league’s star quarterbacks.
In an unprecedented move, the NFL granted full access to three elite quarterbacks over the course of the 2022 season, allowing them to be mic’d up for every single game of a season. Through the show’s eight episodes, fans at home get an intimate glimpse into the lives of these football legends, both on and off the field.
Among the quarterbacks featured in the first season of the show is Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins who enjoyed quite a wild season in 2022 which included Cousins orchestrating the biggest comeback in NFL history!
In watching the show, Cousins talks about more highs than lows as the season unfolds which is in part due to the fact that the Vikings enjoyed a strong season last year. But was it strong enough to land them a spot in the playoffs?
