With under a minute left in regulation during the Minnesota Vikings' Week 2 clash with the Green Bay Packers, Kirk Cousins threaded the needle to Adam Thielen for an improbable touchdown.
It looked like Packers safety Kentrell Brice was in position to break up the pass, but the ball somehow snuck by him.
To hear Thielen tell it, that was due to his use of "late hands" on the play.
The concept of "late hands" refers to a receiver not extending their hands to catch the ball until the very last second.
This prevents defensive backs from knowing the ball is coming to said receiver until it's too late. If you watch Brice, it does look like he's playing Thielen rather than the ball, so it's fair to assume he was fooled by the late hands.
The pass had a completion probability of just 12.4%.
The Vikings went on to score the 2-point conversion and the game ended in a tie.
