Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins tried to explain what was going on when he lined up under his guard instead of his center on 4th and goal while the team was trying to score against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

The Vikings were down 34-26 in the fourth quarter and were going for a touchdown on 4th and goal with 9:09 left in the game. Minnesota was clearly scrambling, trying to get a snap off, and Cousins ended up trying to take the snap from under his guard instead of his center.

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

Minnesota would get one more chance to tie the game but turned the ball over on downs again.
