WATCH: Kirk Cousins and T.J. Hockenson extend Vikings lead with touchdown grab

T.J. Hockenson starts the second half off right for the Minnesota Vikings with a touchdown grab in the back of the end zone.

Minnesota started the second half with the football and drove down the field with ease against the Green Bay Packers defense. Kirk Cousins went 7-of-9 for 72 yards and the touchdown to Hockenson. A perfect way to start the half after some struggles finishing in the red zone in the first half.

The play before, on 2nd down, Hockenson was guarded by pass-rusher/outside linebacker Preston Smith who made a play to stop the touchdown then. Hockenson got his get-back on the very next play.

The lead extends to 17-3, making life difficult for Green Bay, who is already having trouble getting into a rhythm.

Cousins has been on a tear against the Green Bay defense as they continue to try to find answers against Cousins and this red-hot passing offense.
