Kirk Cousins is slowly becoming the most viral quarterback in the National Football League.

After another road win, the Vikings quarterback went viral for his antics on the plane ride back to Minnesota. This time, a video of Cousins spread like wildfire on social media after the 34-year-old signal-caller was seen dancing shirtless with diamond chains hanging around his neck as his teammates cheered him on.

It’s understandable why Cousins was excited enough to don his teammates’ chains and dance bare-chested. The former Washington quarterback went into Landover and defeated his former team with a fourth-quarter comeback. 



Cousins was 22-for-40 passing for 265 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Minnesota trailed 17-7 in the fourth quarter, but Cousins led a late comeback that ended with a 28-yard field goal by Greg Joseph in the final minute. The Vikings are now 7-1. 

Cousins dancing with chains on has become a road tradition for the Vikings. The ritual began after Minnesota’s win over the New Orleans Saints in London and then happened again after a win in Miami.
