MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kirk Cousins connected with a wide-open K.J. Osborn for the go-ahead, 28-yard touchdown with 45 seconds remaining, as the Minnesota Vikings rallied to beat the Detroit Lions 28-24. Osborn blew by former Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes on a corner route to snag the in-stride pass and cruise across the goal line to give Minnesota the lead for the first time. The Vikings then didn’t let Jared Goff and the Lions cross midfield. Dalvin Cook rushed for 96 yards and a score before leaving with a shoulder injury for the Vikings, who fell behind 14-0 and 24-14.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook injured his shoulder late in the third quarter against the Detroit Lions. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Cook had 17 carries for a season-high 96 yards and his first touchdown of the year. On a first-down run near midfield he ran into the back of his left guard Ezra Cleveland. The ball flew out of his arms and was recovered by the Lions. After the scramble for the ball, Cook grabbed his left arm in pain and jogged off the field.
