The Minnesota Vikings have struck first against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football! After the Vikings put a halt to Dallas’ opening drive (albeit due to a missed Brett Maher field goal), Minnesota stormed through the Cowboys defense on the ground with Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison. At the goal line, quarterback Kirk Cousins opted against handing the ball off to one of his running backs, instead tossing one to the back of the end zone…that was somehow snagged by Kyle Rudolph with one big paw.
Forget catch of the week. This might be catch of the whole year.
Rudolph, of all people, had no business snagging a jump throw that wasn’t even really meant for him to haul in. Dare we say…primetime Kirk Cousins?!
