Vikings come back to beat Commanders for 6th consecutive win
Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes to help the Minnesota Vikings come back and beat the Washington Commanders 20-17 for their sixth consecutive victory.
Cousins led multiple fourth-quarter scoring drives after the Vikings fell behind 17-7.
The former Washington quarterback also capitalized on Harrison Smith’s interception of current Commanders starter Taylor Heinicke that gave Minnesota the ball inside the red zone.
Greg Joseph made a 28-yard field goal with 12 seconds left to keep the Vikings winning streak alive.
Washington’s winning streak ended at three.
