Kirk Cousins fails to meet the moment vs. 49ers. Vikings season depends on him now.

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. — Oli Udoh almost jumped, like a frog touched on the rump. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, scrambling as the play clock ran down, from the 49ers 3-yard line, on what might have been the key play of the game, had lined up behind Udoh, the right guard, instead of the center. For a moment the deadly serious and frequently injurious sport of professional football became a sitcom, and Udoh all but levitated.

Kirk Cousins lined up under the right guard, who does not snap the ball

Kirk Cousins often seems like one of the NFL’s better quarterbacks on-paper. Cousins has consistently put up impressive numbers since signing a huge contract with the Minnesota Vikings ahead of the 2018 season, but he only has one playoff appearance to show for it. Even when Cousins is good, he has a reputation for failing in big moments. He’s not going to shake that distinction after the way the Vikings lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12 on Sunday.

WATCH: Deebo Samuel scores 4th rushing TD of season

Deebo Samuel’s evolution into a running back continued Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. He capped a six-play, 75-yard touchdown drive with a 20-yard rushing touchdown – his fourth of the year. Ironically the 49ers’ drive started with a Samuel run that went backward four yards. A big 37-yard completion to Brandon Aiyuk on a third-and-13 helped kickstart the 49ers’ scoring drive that tied the game at 7-7.

Golden Nuggets: Game. Day.

“Greenlaw was activated on Saturday afternoon, but Ford will remain out for at least one more game.”. “Yeah, I think it’s when you can dictate it,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. “And that’s the best way to dictate a game, is to run the ball. And to do it, it’s not just the running back, it’s not just the O-line, and it’s not just the offense. I feel like when you can dominate a game through the run game, yeah, you’ve got to have all of that with the offense, but it’s the whole team.”
