Few people were happier with the Minnesota Vikings’ comeback win on Sunday over the Washington Commanders than quarterback Kirk Cousins.
After trailing 17-7 in the fourth quarter, the Vikings scored 13 unanswered points in the final minutes of action, capped off by a game-winning field goal from kicker Greg Joseph just before the final whistle.
For Cousins, it was a win against the team he left years ago, and he wasn’t shy about letting the Vikings know just how much he was relishing the victory.
“YOU LIKE THAT ON THREE,” Cousins yelled, breaking down the team’s postgame huddle, in an ode to his most iconic moment while still playing for Washington.

It looked like quite a party.
Cousins and the Vikings have plenty to celebrate.
With the win, Minnesota moved to 7-1 on the season, second only to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL.
With the Packers in a tailspin, the Vikings hold a 4.5-game lead on the NFC North division, and look likely to be a top seed heading into the postseason, barring a collapse in the second half of the year.
The Vikings have a tough test coming up next week, traveling to Buffalo to take on a Bills team that will surely be ready to bounce back after a frustrating loss to the Jets. But if Minnesota can pass that test, there’s no telling how far they could go this year.
