Vikings receiver Adam Thielen plowed into the end zone for a touchdown during the second quarter Sunday against Green Bay.

A Vikings team that appeared left for dead two weeks ago is 5-5, in control of its own destiny for a wild-card spot in the NFC's seven-team playoff field, and has one of the hottest offense in the NFL.

Those facts would have seemed farcical two weeks ago, after back-to-back losses put the Vikings at 3-5. But an aggressive attack that got them a win on the road a week ago was even better on Sunday, with two scoring drives in the game's final three minutes to give the Vikings a 34-31 win over the Packers on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Kirk Cousins threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns, driving the Vikings in position for the game-winning field goal after the Packers looked like they might steal a game the Vikings led by two touchdowns in the first half.
