ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter may have gone a little too much into the game on Monday Night Football by mimicking Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins’ shirtless dance that went viral on Sunday.
“You like that?” the 55-year-old sportswriter asked his on-air partners on the MNF pregame show as he wriggled his shirtless body back and forth.
The Vikings quarterback went viral on the team plane after a 20-17 win over the Washington Commanders — Minnesota’s sixth straight win — by doing a shirtless dance surrounded by his eager teammates.

Kirk Cousins broke the chains again after beating the commanders on Sunday
Like Cousins on Sunday, Schefter was sporting a tangled web of thick, gold jewelry around his neck.
“Now Adam Schefter is impersonating you on the pregame show,” Peyton Manning told Cousins on ESPN’s “Peyton & Eli” simulcast of Monday’s Ravens-Saints game, which Baltimore won 27-13.
“We don’t really need to show that,” Peyton said as a replay started.
“I don’t want to look at that,” younger brother Eli added.
Viewers usually agreed, as witnessed by the reaction on Twitter.
“Holy hell man,” former New York Giants and Jets tweeted to Jumbo Elliott. “Kids could watch. LOL.’
“Who thought this was a good idea?” asked a fan.
“Remember when he was an NFL insider?” asked another fan. “Can we come back to that?”
Cousins has made it a habit this season to wear flashy necklaces to celebrate the Vikings’ victories, something he repeated after passing 265 yards and a pair of touchdowns while beating his former team on Sunday.
And while the narrow win helped the Vikings to a 7-1 record and sixth straight win, the real show came on the plane back to Minnesota, where Cousins has produced several viral moments this year.
‘Before you know it I’ll have my shirt off, I’ve’ [linebacker Za’Darius Smith’s] watch on my wrist and they tell me all the dance steps to do with my hands,” Cousins told the Manning brothers Monday night. “If we keep winning these away games, but I’m a little nervous where it might end.”
The quarterback has donned the expensive-looking jewelry on at least two other occasions this season, as wins over the Saints and Dolphins prompted the 34-year-old to borrow necklaces from his teammates as well.
“I’ve never worn a necklace before,” he said after wearing one on the run back from the Vikings’ victory over New Orleans in London. “It gave me a lot of power.”
