It never gets old with this team, does it?!?
Again in dramatic fashion, the Minnesota Vikings came out on top this week with a 27-24 victory over the New York Giants. Of course, it was on the final drive, Kirk’s league-leading eighth game-winning drive, and of course, it was a one-score game, the eleventh such win for the Vikings this season.

- T.J. Hockenson reeled in 13 passes, the most in franchise history for a tight end in a single game.
- Greg Joseph hit a 61-yard game-winning field goal to close this one out, breaking his own franchise record of 56 yards for the longest kick in regular season play.
- The Vikings got their 11th win by one score, a new NFL single-season record.
