Kirk Cousins roasted after 'one of the worst performances of his career' on MNF


Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins' well-documented struggles in primetime games continued in spectacular fashion against the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

Though his receivers were guilty of at least a couple costly miscues, Cousins was notably out of sorts in Philadelphia. The veteran signal-caller finished 27-of-46 for 221 yards, one touchdown pass, and three interceptions. He was sacked twice and averaged just 4.8 yards per pass attempt.

Unfortunately for Cousins, he didn't get much help from his teammates. Irv Smith dropped what looked like a likely touchdown pass shortly before halftime, and star wide receiver Justin Jefferson appeared to run the wrong route on one of Eagles cornerback Darius Slay's interception early in the third quarter.

And with the Vikings' defense struggling to contain the Eagles and quarterback Jalen Hurts, it was an all-around forgettable night for Minnesota.

But playing the game's most important position, Cousins took most of the heat. The 34-year-old three-time Pro Bowler fell to just 2-10 in primetime games in his career, underscoring his futility in big games.

And it earned him more than a few potshots from the peanut gallery on social media. Here's what some fans and journalists were saying:
