Vikings vs Panthers - CTP’s: The Final Score

Yinka Ayinde joins Flip, Matt, and Dave watching the last 2 minutes and into overtime as Kirk Cousins becomes clutch and KJ Osborn the hero. The Vikings are now back to .500 and still alive in the playoff race.

The Minnesota Vikings are 2-3 and have to win this game, right? They did. The final score was 34-28 in OT. Dalvin Cook is back. Will he be explosive? 143 yards. I’d say so. Are the ankles healed enough? 140 rushing alone. Christian Darrisaw gets his first start. Will he see all the snaps? He did. How will he play? It was spectacular. Can we win the time of possession? The Carolina Panthers are #1 in the league in that category. The Vikings actually did. Did Justin Jefferson’s and Adam Thielen’s scare this week pass a message that they wanted the ball more? Absolutely! Over 200 yards between the two. Did the deep dive review of the offense and scripting of plays going into the 2nd half work? That’s debatable. Will the defense finally stop a running game and hold it under 100 yards? No, 118 though. Will the beloved Purple win? In over-time! We’ll have it all going live right before the final whistle. From fans in the stands to you at home or your favorite watering hole, Jayson, Matt, Flip and Dave joined by you will be here for your Vikings vs Lions reactions.
