Vikings steal a 28-24 win from the Lions with a last-minute touchdown
Kirk Cousins hit K.J. Osborn with 45 seconds left to give the Vikings their only lead of the game
September 26, 2022
The Vikings will head to London with a 2-1 record and two division wins at home. They needed virtually every second of Sunday's game against the Lions to get there.
Down 14-0 in the first half, the Vikings rallied to tie the game, then fell behind by 10 again. But after they stopped Jamaal Williams on the Lions' sixth fourth-down attempt of the day - and Lions coach Dan Campbell decided on a field goal attempt instead of a seventh attempt - Kirk Cousins hit K.J. Osborn for a pair of 28-yard completions, finding him wide open in the end zone for a touchdown with 45 seconds left that gave the Vikings a 28-24 win.
It is the first time since 2017 the Vikings will end September with a winning record, and the rally brought them back from another game that looked like it could spiral out of their hands.
