49ers Pro Bowler Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman has been locking down receivers all season long, but on Saturday Kirk Cousins decided to test him. It didn’t go well for the quarterback.

The Minnesota Vikings, down 17-10 early in the third, saw Cousins throw right to Sherman, who had no trouble taking the ball away with an interception.

This set the San Francisco 49ers up in Vikings territory and was the first big mistake by the Vikings offense in the divisional-round playoff game.

Adding insult to injury, Sherman used Cousins’ own catch phrase against him with an “I like that” exclamation in celebration.

Absolutely savage right there.
