Vikings hold on to beat Texans 31-23 for first win of the season
October 5, 2020
HOUSTON - The Vikings are heading home from NRG Stadium, winners for the first time this year, because they had another opportunity to work the formula they used to nearly beat the Titans a week ago.
The Vikings are 1-3, instead of 0-4, because they faced a Texans team that was even more inefficient than Tennessee was.
Another big day for Dalvin Cook (who ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns) and the Vikings' top two receivers (both Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson surpassed 100 yards) allowed the Vikings to keep the second-half lead they built this time and hang on for a 31-23 win over the Texans.
