Vikings win their division in NFL with historic comeback

The Minnesota Vikings pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history on Saturday to clinch the NFC North title with a 39-36 overtime victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Vikings erased a 33–0 deficit at halftime and won on kicker Greg Joseph’s 40-yard field goal with two seconds left in overtime.

Minnesota scored 21 points in the fourth quarter when quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​connected on three touchdown passes.

That Cousins ​​performance included a 64-yard TD pass to Dalvin Cooks followed by a two-point conversion pass to TJ Hockenson that tied the score at 36–36 with 2:15 left in regulation.

Each team punted on their first overtime possession, but the Vikings eventually won on their second overtime opportunity.

Until this Saturday, the biggest comeback in NFL history was the signing of the Buffalo Bills, who reversed a 32-point deficit in January 1993 to beat the Houston Oilers in a wild-card playoff game.

In Cleveland, the local Browns beat the Baltimore Ravens 13–3 with outstanding offensive work from quarterback Deshauns Watson.

Watson threw a touchdown pass in his home debut for Cleveland, leading the Browns to a 13–3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, who needed injured quarterback Lamar Jackson to recover quickly.

In his third game after serving an 11-game NFL suspension for alleged sexual misconduct, Watson was not spectacular. But he helped keep the Browns’ (6-8) playoff hopes alive by sweeping the Ravens (9-5).

In the end, the Buffalo Bills defeated the Miami Dolphins 32–29 thanks to quarterback Josh Allen, who completed 25 of 40 passes for 303 yards and four touchdowns.
