Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins takes his share of criticism from fans who are long overdue for a championship.  Criticize his on-field play if you must, but don't you dare speak ill of his ability to sing and dance on stage!

On Wednesday, Kirk Cousins was trending on Twitter as several accounts shared the the video clip below of Kirk singing and dancing like there's no tomorrow.

I actually can feel Kirk's pain.  As a guy who grew up singing in high school concerts and musicals, I know there's really not an easy way to perform in these types of things while also maintaining a tremendous amount of dignity.  You just have to embrace the awkwardness and hope there are no cameras rolling.  Kirk did not get lucky in that regard.

The Minnesota Vikings will look to win their third game in row on Monday, November 16 when they travel to Solider Field to take on the struggling Chicago Bears, who have lost 3 games in a row after a hot start.  It would also be 3 wins in a row for the Vikings against divisional opponents.

If they are going to get that done, they'll need their young defense to continue to improve while riding Dalvin Cook's hot streak.  Cook has won back-to-back NFC Offensive Player Of The Week honors and is making his case for NFL MVP consideration.

However, the Bears are likely to put every single defender near the line of scrimmage to stop Dalvin, so the game may very well come down to Kirk Cousins making plays.  Judging by the video below, I think he's more than up to the challenge.
