It was a very impressive drive from both Cousins and Jefferson. The drive lasted nine plays and they traveled 78 yards to get the score. Cousins completed all five of his passes for 67 yards.
Jefferson was the star of the drive, as he caught all four targets for 48 yards and a touchdown. The entire drive, he wasn’t what you would deem open, but it didn’t matter. Even when Jefferson is well covered, it doesn’t matter. He’s still open.
The Vikings have set themselves up well for the rest of the game.
