Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins made a pretty embarrassing mistake against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Late in the fourth quarter, Cousins lined up under the wrong offensive lineman, causing his team to call a timeout.
The Vikings lost to the 49ers, 34-26, on Sunday.

Cousins addressed what happened following Sunday afternoon’s loss.
“I was just moving, trying to get everybody settled up and then just got under the wrong guy,” Cousins told reporters on Sunday night.
