Welcome back to another victorious edition of the Vikings Postgame Report. The Minnesota Vikings continued their trend of finishing close games by outscoring the Commanders 13-7 in the 4th quarter and winning the game 20-17. The Commanders Defense gave the Vikings fits, but the Vikings Offense methodically moved the ball in the 4th Quarter and the Vikings Defense capitalized on mistakes by Taylor Heinicke down the stretch. WR Justin Jefferson caught his first TD pass since Week 1 of the season on the opening drive and finished the game with 7 receptions for 155 yards, a receiving TD, and 10 rushing yards. Newly acquired Tight End T.J. Hockenson jumped into-the-mix catching all 9 targets for 70 receiving yards. Dalvin Cook had 57 all-purpose yards and the critical one-handed receiving TD in the 4th Quarter. Quarterback Kirk Cousins finished the game 22-of-40, 265 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 INT and 2 sacks. Defensively, the Line was making Heinicke uncomfortable all day, finishing the game with 3 sacks, 7 QB hits, and 7 pass defections. Danielle Hunter finished the game with a bunch of 'Terrible Two's': 2 sacks, 2 QB hits and 2 tackles for loss. Other notable defensive stars, include: D.J. Wonnum with the 3rd sack of the game, Harrison Smith added in yet another Interception on the season, and Jordan Hicks finished the game with 10 combined tackles. Kicker Greg Joseph hit his two 4th-Quarter Field Goal attempts inside the Redzone and added in two Extra Points to remain perfect on the day. Paul Allen and Pete Bercich react to everything that happened in today's tight finish, including: why the Vikings resiliency has lead to them being 6-0 in one-score games, Cousins' performance in his return to Washington, and Hockenson's effect in this Offense. Plus, Head Coach Kevin O'Connell speaks to the media, Gabe Henderson and Ben Leber 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 9 edition of the Vikings Postgame Report.
