Kirk Cousins explains his touchdown dance against the Falcons

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins did not have to do much in Minnesota’s 28-12 victory over the Falcons on Sunday, and mainly because the Vikings had a lot of success running the ball. Minnesota finished the game with 172 yards on the ground. Cousins threw the ball only 10 times and would finish the game 8/10 for 98 yards and one touchdown through the air and another on the ground.

However, it’s what happened after his rushing touchdown that had people talking. In the second quarter, Cousins scored a touchdown on a quarterback sneak. Once in the end zone, Cousins did a little dance.

After the game, Cousins explained his little dance

“That’s kind of an inside joke between me and an old buddy, friend, teammate Tom Compton,” he said on Sunday. “I texted him and said, ‘See if you can find a video of that. I think you’re going to like it.’ I told the guys in the locker room if I scored today, I was going to do it, so they were ready for it. It was just fun, having a good time, enjoying playing.”

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook enjoyed Cousins’ dance routine.

“I was right there with him,” Cook said. “We just do our thing. Kirk is kinda like the football dad on this team. We love seeing him show his personality. It gets the whole team hype.”

Life is good in the NFL when you are winning, and if the Vikings continue to win, expect more dancing from Cousins.
