Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) celebrated after throwing a touchdown to Alexander Mattison in the second quarter.

The Vikings celebrated their second home victory of the year at midfield at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, mobbing Greg Joseph after his 54-yard field goal saved them from a loss to the winless Lions.

The 19-17 win improved their record to 2-3, in a game where they blew a 10-point lead in the final five minutes. Players blasted DJ Kahled's "All I Do is Win" from the locker room after a victory that kept the Vikings from their fourth defeat by seven points or less this season.

Their celebration might have been borne of relief as much as anything.
