Kirk Cousins scored a touchdown, the refs did nothing, and things got weird

What the ...

It turns out that NFL refs are still not great.

Kirk Cousins broke the plane on a run to pull Washington within eight points of the Vikings in the fourth quarter. The problem: No referee signaled anything.

The line judge, who presumably had an obscured view, did nothing. Neither did the back judge or any other official. Instead, they let Cousins fumble into the end zone, allowed Andrew Sendejo to pick it up and run the entire length of the field for what he believed was a Vikings touchdown before it went to review and obviously — and correctly — called a touchdown.

This was all so bizarre. It’s not like it was really close either — Cousins was over by a large margin before he fumbled.
