Kirk Cousins reacts to breaking embarrassing streak in win over Bears
The Minnesota Vikings were able to prevail over the Chicago Bears on Monday night, giving Kirk Cousins his first career victory on Monday Night Football. Amid the reactions to Cousins’ incredible streak of futility, Cousins himself isn’t too concerned about his record in Monday night games.
“You know, for me it’s all about playing well and doing my part,” Cousins said in his postgame conference, via ProFootballTalk. “I’ve played long enough to know there is not a lot you can control as a quarterback. The ball is in your hands, but so many things are out of your control. So you just do the best you can, play the best you can, and that’s where my focus always is.”
Heading into Monday night’s tilt with the Bears, Cousins had a dismal 0-9 record on Monday Night Football. His underwhelming performances on primetime have been prevalent since his days with the Washington Football Team.
While the Vikings didn’t light up the scoreboard against Chicago’s defense, Cousins did enough to give Minnesota their third-straight win. The veteran signal-caller would finish the game with 292 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception that should have been caught by Adam Thielen.
There’s no denying the fact that Cousins hasn’t performed well this season, with him having the second-most interceptions in the NFL with 11. However, Cousins is beginning to do what is needed of him while the Vikings lean on Dalvin Cook and the rushing attack.
10th time’s the charm, Kirk.
