Analysis: Chargers, Vikings trade strangely. Still confused by Jets' Wilson committment

The Vikings and Chargers made perplexing calls in the final two minutes.  

For now, the Jets will continue with a bizarre pick. 

After Brandon Staley set Minnesota up for a win, Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell and quarterback Kirk Cousins handed him a break by mismanaging the clock. 

Cousins' 9-yard pass to T.J. Hockenson on fourth down with 42 seconds left gave Minnesota a first-and-goal at the Chargers 6.  

With no timeouts, the call should have been simple. 

Huddle, spike the ball, and earn three shots at the end zone with 30 seconds left. 

Due to crowd noise, Cousins couldn't hear O'Connell and intercepted a deflected ball to secure a 28-24 loss on Sunday.
