Article Summary:

When the Minnesota Vikings extended their lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers to 29-0 in the third quarter of Thursday night’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium, you would have thought that the purple would coast to an easy victory.

After both teams missed a field goal on their first possession, the Vikings got on the board first courtesy of Justin Jefferson, as he reeled in a 14-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to put the Vikings on the board. Dalvin Cook put up a career-high 205 yards, but Kirk Cousins had one of his worst games as a Viking to let the Steelers back into it.

It wasn’t pretty, and it wasn’t easy, but the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 36-28 on Thursday Night Football.
