Vikings Fall to Saints 30-20 Sunday Night
The Minnesota Vikings (4-3-1) lost to the New Orleans Saints 30-20 Sunday night at U.S. Bank Stadium, ending their three-game winning streak.
In a rematch of last year's NFC divisional playoff game, 2018 Vikings had no miracle to pull out another last second win.
Vikings receiver had his eighth consecutive 100+ yards receiving game to start the season -- breaking and tying all kinds of records. Unfortunately, he also fumbled near the end of the first half, swinging the game's momentum in favor of the Saints.
Kirk Cousins completed 31 of 41 attempts for 359 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Latavius Murray was Minnesota's leading rusher with 13 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. Both Thielen and Stefon Diggs had 100+ yard games and a touchdown.
Trae Waynes led the defense with six tackles. Harrison Smith had an interception, Drew Brees' first of the season.
