The Minnesota Vikings had to call a timeout late against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday evening for a pretty embarrassing reason.
Kirk Cousins lined up under the wrong offensive lineman. Seriously.
The Vikings had to call a last-second timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty when Cousins accidentally lined up underneath his right guard instead of his center.
That’s not great…
“The Vikings had to take a timeout before their 4th down play as Kirk Cousins lined up under his guard and tried to take the snap,” FOX Sports NFL shared on Twitter.
