Vikings' Kirk Cousins inexplicably lines up behind guard to take snap in brutal mistake

I vichinghi erano a terra 34-26 nel quarto quarto e stavamo cercando un touchdown al 4° e un gol con 9:09 rimasto in gioco. Il Minnesota stava chiaramente rimescolando, cercando di ottenere un play off, and Cousins ended up trying to take the snap from under his guard instead of his center.

Alexander Mattison tried to get Cousins over to the center before the team had to burn a timeout. But it was too late. Minnesota was forced to call a timeout.

After the timeout, Cousins fired a pass incomplete to Justin Jefferson and turned the ball over back to the 49ers.
