Correcting Kirk Cousins stat: Dating back to last season, Kirk Cousins teams are 1-7-1 in his last 9 starts against teams that entered the game with a winning record.— Ed Werder (@EdwerderRFA) December 27, 2018
A 1-7-1 record against winning teams in your last nine starts is the type of stuff that gets people fired, not an $84-million contract. Also, if you're wondering if this is just a bad stretch in Cousins' career, no, he has some of the worst stats ever when it comes to winning games against good teams.

The Bears are a winning team and Cousins needs to beat them to get his team in the playoffs. Unfortunately, he's only beaten four of those in his entire NFL career. The good thing is this game is at home and won't be in primetime, so those numbers can be taken out of the equation.
We are on the @nflnetwork over at @GMFB . Kirk Cousins is 4-12 in primetime and 0-1 in the playoffs, but has thrown for over 5,000 yards in those 17 games. How much confidence do we have in the Vikings QB in a must win Sunday? Lamar or Baker? Who's Coach of the Year? And more.— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) December 27, 2018
So if you're a Vikings fan you have a right to be nervous on Sunday, if you're an Eagles fan this is great news and if you're a bettor, stay away from Kirk Cousins in this game.
