Minnesota Vikings cornerback Kris Boyd has hit out at Commanders’ Taylor Heinicke for imitating Kirk Cousins’ celebrations after Washington beat the Philadelphia Eagles and draped its quarterback with diamond chains on the plane ride back to America’s capital.
‘Stop tryna f***ing be us… Lames… He couldn’t even hold Kirk jockstrap. Find your own trend!…Y’all s*** don’t even look like y’all having fun enjoying it..’ Boyd tweeted.
Ironically, Cousins’ celebration came against the Commanders, his old team from 2012 to 2017, when the Vikings beat them 20-17 on November 6. It was the first time he’d played at FedEx Field since the last year he was with the franchise.

With music blaring in the background, Cousins gleefully rocked massive chains without his shirt on as his highly amused teammates cheered him on. Cousins had a huge grin on his face as he danced to the music and toasted yet another hard-fought Vikings win.
And Heinicke did the same thing on Monday night, except he was wearing a shirt. The 29-year-old was sipping on a beer too while wearing several chains of gold and silver jewelry owned by his teammates. He also carried some flashy specs with golden hinges.
When a fan said that Boyd should give the Commanders some credit for beating the previously undefeated Eagles, the defensive back replied: ‘Idgaf! We gone whoop both they a** they cross our path again.’
Cousins broke out the chains once again after beating the Commanders on November 6, a common celebration he’s had throughout the season, as the Vikings are 8-1
Later he justified his reaction, tweeting: ‘I go hard behind my team man… There is no other way around it. These guys are like my brothers. A huge family from all corners. And it’s nothing but major love!! Minnesota Vikings is my family and I don’t play when it comes to us!! Point blank period!’
So far this season, Minnesota’s only loss (8-1) came at the hands to the Eagles (7-24) in September.
Meanwhile, Heinicke is set to start at quarterback again for Washington when they visit the Houston Texans on Sunday, coach Ron Rivera said.

Carson Wentz did not take part in the team’s walkthrough Wednesday. Rivera said Wentz has been cleared to throw but has not been designated to return to practice after having surgery to repair a broken finger on his throwing hand.
Wentz, who worked out on an outdoor practice field, would have been eligible to return this week after spending the past four weeks on injured reserve. Instead, Washington will keep rolling with Heinicke, who is 3-1 since replacing Wentz as the starter.
The Commanders are in the thick of the NFC wild-card race at 5-5 after Heinicke threw for 211 yards, one touchdown and completing 58.6 percent of his passes (17/29) against the Eagles.
