Kirk Cousins makes absolutely absurd touchdown throw to Adam Thielen

Kirk Cousins has been on fire since joining the Minnesota Vikings.

Cousins signed with the Vikings on a fully guaranteed three-year contract worth $84 million back in March and it looks like money well spent through the first two games of the NFL season with the former Washington Redskins quarterback putting on a clinic against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

With the Vikings trailing the Packers by eight points with just 36 seconds left on the clock, Cousins dropped back into the pocket and threw an absolute dart towards wide receiver Adam Thielen who somehow hauled the pass in without stepping out of bounds.

The Vikings converted the ensuing two-point conversion to send the game into overtime where they botched a chance to claim a second successive win at Lambeau after kicker Daniel Carlson pulled a 35-yard field goal wide right of the uprights.

The game ended in a draw as both sides will look to get back on track next week with the Vikings set to face the winless Buffalo Bills while the Packers will head to Washington to face the Redskins.
