Cousins Throws TD Pass in OT; Vikes Beat Panthers 34-28
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kirk Cousins completed a 27-yard touchdown pass to K.J. Osborn on the first possession of overtime to lift the Minnesota Vikings to a wild 34-28 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Cousins threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns against the league’s top-ranked pass defense, Dalvin Cook ran for 140 yards and a score and the Minnesota Vikings finally appeared to solve their second-half offensive woes.
Adam Thielen had a number of big catches, finishing with 11 receptions for 126 yards and a touchdown.
The Vikings had not scored a second-half touchdown in their previous four games, but the Vikings had three offensive scores after halftime today.
The Minnesota Vikings now enjoy a bye on Week 7 of the NFL season before they return home for a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Halloween night at U.S. Bank Stadium.
