Cousins’ comeback falls short, Vikings and Packers tie

Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown, and Diggs had nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns.

Cousins had 425 yards and set up the Vikings for a 35-yard game-winning field goal but rookie Daniel Carlson missed wide right to end the game.

As a result of the tie, the Vikings and Packers are now tied atop the NFC North with 1-0-1 records.

"In my mind, I was playing all week but I needed to feel good yesterday". If there was somebody on our team who I know that can mentally and emotionally handle it, it's DC.

Roy Cooper warned, describing day after day of disastrous weather to come. "It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave". Cruise ships have diverted to Florida away from the storm's path, and some hotels are offering special discounts for evacuees.


Receiver Davante Adams is also active for the Packers after he was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.

"I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control here". After getting a step on his defender, Adam Thielen hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left just before a safety came over to help.

Like any other National Football League game, the keys to victory are winning individual matchups - as some say, the matchups within the matchup. A 2-point conversion tied the game at 29. "I thought I hit him within his waist to chest, I got my head across, put my hands down", Matthews said.

"I'm taking a lot of risks at my age, every time I step on the field, but there's no greater feeling than being out there with the guys".

"I don't know where to start, to be honest with you".

Crosby nearly had six field goals, but his first, successful attempt from 52 at the end of the regulation was erased because the Vikings called timeout right before the snap. "I've thrown four picks in a game, I've had nights where I've wondered if I should show up at work the next morning with how frustrated I was with myself".

Clay Matthews Jr. pressured Cousins on the first-down play, hitting the quarterback just after he threw and knocking him to the ground in what appeared to be a legal takedown.

Referee Tony Corrente told ESPN that Mathews was flagged for driving Cousins into the ground, and that his use of his body weight was not considered. Although it can only happen two to three times per season, these matchups are always interesting to watch.
