The Minnesota Vikings did yesterday what 99 NFL teams couldn't do in the last 5 years. They came back and won a game from a twenty point deficit.  100 games.  Kind of ironic since this is the NFL's 100th season.  It's been 5 years since a team has done that in the NFL.

It was the Minnesota Vikings 4th biggest comeback of all time.  After the smoked cleared it was Minnesota 27-23 over the Denver Broncos.

It was a tale of two half's as Minnesota trailed 20-0 at halftime.  They made it 20-7 after the first drive the second half only to spot the Broncos another 3 points to trail 23-7.  Kirk Cousins took over after that as the Vikings stormed back with 3 strait touchdowns.  Cousins finished the day with 3 touchdowns.

It was a much needed win as the Vikings kept pace with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North and put themselves in a very good position to make the playoffs.

The Vikings will get their bye week next weekend and hopefully get some of their starters healthy.  Most notably Wide Receiver Adam Thielen.  The Vikings will play at Seattle in two weeks.
