Kirk Cousins sets up easy TD throw with beautiful pump fake
Kirk Cousins is trying to get the Vikings above .500 on the season, and he started things off on the right foot on Sunday Night Football.
Facing off against the Dallas Cowboys, Cousins drove down the field on the opening drive. It covered 75 yards on 7 plays with Cousins providing a beautiful score to cap it off.
With a bunch formation to the bottom of the field, Cousins made a beautiful pump fake that drew the defense toward the sideline. It left Adam Thielen wide open over the middle for an easy pitch-and-catch touchdown.

Coming into the game, Cousins had thrown for over 1,700 yards with 13 TDs to just 2 interceptions. Minnesota started the year with back-to-back losses but has since gone 3-1. Can Cousins and the Vikings make it 3 straight wins with a win on SNF?
