Kirk Cousins Ripped by Fans for Latest MNF Struggles in Vikings' Loss to Eagles

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has developed a reputation of struggling in prime-time games. His performance against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football did nothing to change that narrative.

Cousins once again withered under the bright lights as the Vikings suffered a 24-7 loss. The 34-year-old went 27-of-46 for 221 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. All three of his picks were thrown in the second half, with two of them coming on back-to-back possessions in the third quarter.

After Monday's abysmal performance, Cousins is 2-10 in Monday Night Football games and 8-18 in prime-time games in his 11-year career.

NFL Twitter did not hold back from unleashing its wrath on Cousins following another clunker with the entire football world tuning in:

You'll never win anything of substance as long as Kirk Cousins is your quarterback.

The only good thing about this Monday Night Football double header is that maybe only half the country is witnessing Primetime Kirk Cousins.

Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless

Kirk Cousins: Most overpaid quarterback ever.

Josh Tolentino @JCTSports

What a stat on the ESPN broadcast: On pass attempts longer than 10 yards, Kirk Cousins is 0-for-4 with two interceptions. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Eagles?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Eagles</a> feasting

Kirk Cousins has to be pissed the last completion to a staff member on the sideline doesn’t count.

Chris Castellani @Castellani2014

Kirk Cousins throwing passes to guys in green and white tonight like he’s playing in Ann Arbor in 2010.

Kirk Cousins out here stealing money 😂😂

Jimmy Kempski @JimmyKempski

Darius Slay is Kirk Cousins' favorite target tonight.

🕊 @ColeyMick

Justin Jefferson’s done a hell of a job covering Darius Slay tonight

Master @MasterTes

Kirk Cousins is not him

Unfortunately for the Vikings, they have another prime-time matchup on the schedule against the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving night. While the Patriots are not world-beaters by any means, it's hard to pick against them with Cousins' continued struggles in marquee games.

Minnesota will be hoping for a better showing from its quarterback when it returns to action on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
