Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has gone viral for his pregame speeches a couple of times this season. Tonight, it's happened again.

The Vikings' starting quarterback took quite the shot at his opponent, the Chicago Bears, while attempting to fire up his teammates.

Cousins referenced the NFL's decision to flex the Bears-Vikings game into primetime on NBC this evening.

The Minnesota quarterback believes the NFL's decision was all about his team, though, and not his opponent.

"They're not the reason this game moved to prime time. We are," he said.

OK then.

The Vikings and the Bears have kicked off on NBC. We'll see if Cousins can back up his talk on the field.
