The Minnesota Vikings’ offense developed a reputation early this season for not taking big shots with quarterback Kirk Cousins. In fact, Cousins’ former teammate and current Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Zach Brown called Cousins’ the weakest part of the Vikings’ offense.

Now just hours after Cousins’ routinely took apart the Eagles’ defense with deep shots down the field, Minnesota’s Twitter account took a shot at Brown on Twitter.

On a day when Cousins threw some dimes deep down the field and connected with Stefon Diggs for three touchdowns, the Vikings’ social media person delivered the biggest shot of them all.

Brown provided bulletin board material for Cousins’ and the Vikings’ offense. It proved costly as Cousins torched Brown and his teammates for 333 passing yards and four touchdowns.
