Welcome back to the Vikings Postgame Report. It was another chapter in the latest slugfest between your Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. The Vikings get it done, 28 - 24, on a late 28-yard touchdown reception by WR K.J. Osborn. It was a bend-not-break effort and the Vikings running game kept the offense moving after the Lions jumped out to a 14 - 0 lead in the first half. Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison and C.J. Ham combined for 155 total yards and 2 rushing touchdowns. QB Kirk Cousins finished his day: 24 of 41, 260 yards passing, 2 passing TD's and 1 sack. WR Adam Thielen did his part by moving the sticks and capitalizing on a Second Quarter 1-yard touchdown reception. Thielen finished with 6 receptions for 61 yards and 1 receiving touchdown. It was his 50th career touchdown reception, tying him with Vikings Legend Sammy White for fourth most in franchise history. K.J. Osborn finished as the leading receiver with 5 receptions for 73 yards and the game winning score. Defensively, the Vikings gave up 14 points to the Lions in just over a quarter and then stiffened up to only allow 10 points for the rest of the game. The Vikings turned over the Lions on downs twice, had 7 passes defensed and forced the Lions into three 40+ yard field goals, two of which they missed. Safety Josh Metellus secured the game with an interception at the Vikings 5-yard line and Kirk Cousins knelt the ball to run out the clock. Paul Allen and Pete Bercich break down the keys to the thrilling victory, Head Coach Kevin O'Connell gives his thoughts at his postgame press conference, Gabe Henderson and Ben Leber go 'Between The Lines' presented by Gatorade, and Ron Johnson shares his 'Three Takes' to round out the show. It's all in the Week 3 edition of the Vikings Postgame Report.
