Cousins had the worst touchdown celebration ever

Midway through the second quarter on Sunday, Kirk Cousins dove over his offensive line to score a one-yard touchdown and increase the Vikings’ lead to 21 points over the Falcons.

As Cousins emerged from the pile in the middle of the end zone, he gathered some of his teammates for what seemed like another memorable touchdown celebration. Well, it was memorable, but only for how terribly awkward it was.

Instead of doing something that is more suited for his dancing abilities like the Dead Arm Dance from last season, his celebration on Sunday looked more like a Dad trying to be cool while he’s chaperoning a middle school dance.

Honestly, it doesn’t really matter what Cousins does after he runs or throws for a touchdown this year though. Because if he keeps leading Minnesota to touchdowns and wins for the rest of the season, no one is going to care what he does to celebrate putting more points on the board for the purple and gold.
