Those who are familiar with Kirk Cousins' NFL career are also probably familiar with his abysmal record in primetime games.

Luckily for Cousins and Minnesota Vikings' fans alike, he finally snapped one of the records that has haunted him throughout his tenure in the NFL on Monday night with a 19-13 win over the division rival Chicago Bears.

With that win, Cousins notched his first victory on Monday night football, after losing all nine of his previous performances. And it looks like that felt pretty good for Cousins.

He certainly let the emotions that came with removing this monkey from his back show in a fiery way Monday night. He was fire up when he realized that victory was within grasp late in the fourth quarter as the Vikings ground down the clock.

It's hard to blame the guy for being so excited! And it's definitely a feel good story, even for those outside of Minnesota fandom.
