On the Minnesota Vikings' first third down Sunday evening, Kirk Cousins gazed across the line of scrimmage and saw chaos. They handed the ball off to Latavius Murray , who appeared to be stopped short of the first down marker.

Shrewsbury, who have appointed Sam Ricketts as boss, have seen off Salford City and Scunthorpe United to reach the third round stage for the fifth time in 23 attempts.

And Dean Smith's revitalised Aston Villa will fancy their chances to get through against Swansea City with home advantage.

The ties are due to be played on the weekend of January 4-6, with the winners claiming £135,500 after prize money was doubled for this season.

Either Walsall or Sunderland will make the trip to Bolton, Hull head for Millwall and Brentford will play host to Oxford.
