Home is where the win is: Vikings beat Seahawks 30-17

 

September 27, 2021

Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 38 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns.

The Vikings had gone 21 months without the ear-splitting home-field advantage they enjoy when U.S. Bank Stadium is full. They'd gone 142 since they last beat the Seahawks, losing six outdoor regular-season games and one fateful, frigid playoff game to Russell Wilson since then.

On Sunday, the Vikings' two long-awaited hopes came true.

With 66,729 there to savor every second of it, the Vikings finally toppled Wilson and the Seahawks, with Kirk Cousins turning in a stellar performance to match Wilson's electric first half and the defense holding Seattle scoreless in the second half. The 30-17 victory in the Vikings' home opener, which followed a pair of narrow defeats on the road, was their first win of the season and their first victory against the Seahawks since Nov. 22, 2009.
