NFL: Vikings complete biggest comeback in history; beat the Colts 39 to 36

After a dismal first half against the Indianapolis Colts, the Minnesota Vikings made a historic comeback in the second half of the game to win 39-36 in overtime on Saturday.

Greg Joseph capped off the Vikings’ incredible comeback (11-3) from a 33-0 deficit with a 40-yard field goal with three seconds left in overtime.

This unlikely victory allowed Minnesota to confirm its division title in the NFC North.

The previous Goodell home run mark was 32, and it was set by the Buffalo Bills in the 1993 playoffs when they turned a 35-3 deficit against the Houston Oilers to a 41-38 victory.

Dalvin Cook caused hysteria at US Bank Stadium when he caught a short pass from Kirk Cousins ​​before heading for 64 yards for the touchdown.

Seconds later, Cousins ​​spotted TJ Hockenson in the center of the end zone, allowing the Vikings to score the two-point conversion and tie the game.

Cousins ​​finished with 460 yards through the air. It was the 8th performance of his career for 400 or more passing yards.

Star receiver Justin Jefferson came within just 9 yards of the franchise record for receiving yards in a single season, a mark owned by Randy Moss (1,632, in 2003).

Jefferson had a hand in the Vikes’ comeback, with an afternoon of 12 catches, 123 yards and a major.

This is a 4th consecutive loss for the Colts (4-9-1).
