Welcome to the Week 16 edition of the Vikings Postgame Report. Tell me if you've heard this before? It was another back-and-forth game and the Vikings needed another last second score to secure the victory. This time, Greg Joseph stepped in to hit a Vikings record 61-yard field goal and the Vikings improved to 12-3. The Vikings Offense saw a host of memorable moments today, including: Justin Jefferson passing Randy Moss for the most yards by a Vikings receiver in a single season (1,623 so far this season), Dalvin Cook moved up to third all-time rushing in Vikings history, and T.J. Hockenson caught 13 receptions for 109 yards and 2 touchdowns. Kirk Cousins finished the day, completing 34-of-48 passes, for 299 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Justin Jefferson's record setting day finished with an individual stat line of 12 receptions, 133 yards and a TD. Defense and Special Teams also stepped up and did their part: Patrick Peterson had a key interception in the Fourth Quarter, Danielle Hunter had 2 sacks, D.J. Wonnum and Khyiris Tonga shared a QB sack, Brian Asamoah II snagged a fumble recovery, and Josh Metellus had a punt block that setup the Justin Jefferson Touchdown. Gabe Henderson and Ben Leber recap the Christmas Eve present from U.S. Bank Stadium, including: Kirk Cousins making plays in the face of pressure at another level, another single score finish becoming a trend not a mirage, T.J. Hockenson's impact on this Offense, the Defense being opportunistic when it matters most, and the discussion about getting key players healthy before the big playoff push. Plus, Head Coach Kevin O'Connell speaks to the media, Gabe Henderson and Ben Leber also go 'Between The Lines' presented by Gatorade, Quarterback Kirk Cousins shares his thoughts in his postgame press conference, and Ron Johnson gives his '3 Takes' to round out the show. All of this and more is in the Week 16 edition of the Vikings Postgame Report.
