Vikings fall in Seattle again

Mon 10-12-2020

SEATTLE - The Minnesota Vikings overcame an ugly third quarter in Seattle and were inches from putting the game away with 2 minutes to go.

The Seahawks stopped Alexander Mattison on a fourth-down run and responded with a 94-yard touchdown drive to retake the lead with 20 seconds left and beat the Vikings 27-26.

After watching their 13-0 lead vanish after Dalvin Cook left the game with a groin injury, the Vikings delivered a remarkable response to the 21-13 deficit they faced late in the third quarter. In the end, Russell Wilson left them crushed once again.

Wilson capped the drive with a six-yard touchdown pass to DK Metcalf on fourth-and-goal with 15 seconds left.

Kirk Cousins was 27-39 for 249 yards and two second-half TD passes to Adam Thielen. Dalvin Cook rushed for a score but sustained a groin injury in the second half.

Wilson finished 20-32 for 217 yards and three touchdowns as Seattle improved to 5-0 for the first time in franchise history.

The Vikes are 1-4. They'll host the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday in a game you can hear on Xtreme Country 105.7.
