The Steelers then got the ball and then missed a field goal of their own, as Chris Boswell pushed one left from 49 yards out, giving the Vikings good field position with about five and a half minutes left in the quarter.

The next drive for the Vikings resulted in a touchdown after some really nice runs from Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison, as Kirk Cousins found Justin Jefferson for a 14-yard touchdown to give the Vikings the lead.
