Wide receiver Justin Jefferson had eight catches for 169 yards with two scores, including a 23-yard strike delivered by Cousins with 2:17 left in the fourth quarter. After a successful two-point conversion from running back Dalvin Cook, the Vikings held a 31-24 lead.
However, in subsequent practice for the Packers, quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected with wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 75-yard touchdown to tie the game just before the two-minute warning.

After the Packers touchdown, Cousins and the Vikings made sure to give Rodgers no time. After a near interception by Packers safety Darnell Savage, Cousins went 3-for-3 for 51 yards on the next three plays before Cook ran for another first down. The Vikings then knelt down to set up Joseph’s final kick.
The Packers’ defense has allowed just 34 points in the previous three games, but struggled in a game in which Rodgers completed 23 of 33 passes for a record 385 yards and four touchdowns.
