However, linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for roughing the passer, and you can be the judge of this one.
The Vikings were faced with a 1st and 10 at the Packers 22 with 36 seconds left in regulation when Cousins took the snap and immediately saw pressure. It was only a tie, but it kept the Packers' season alive.
The Vikings trailed the Packers by seven points with 1 minute, 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter on Sunday when Kirk Cousins' deep pass for Stacy Coley was intercepted by cornerback Jaire Alexander. The Vikings then got a stop, got back into field-goal range, but Carlson missed another, this time from 35 yards, as time expired to seal the tie.
Sarri open to Terry return in Chelsea coaching role
Chelsea center-back David Luiz has praised new manager Maurizio Sarri's positive approach to life and football. But, for me, it's a pleasure. "I think so.
"We had opportunities to win the game, no doubt about it, but frustrating to allow a call which I feel like I did the right thing to influence the game".
"I thought Cousins played outstanding", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "This week, that's unbelievable. But I think, you know, it's going to be a handsome day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment". "I don't know. It's a hard call to call".

Rodgers got hurt in the second quarter last week against the Bears before returning in the second half to lead a come-from-behind victory.
"I'm taking a lot of risks at my age, every time I step on the field, but there's no greater feeling than being out there with the guys. There were times when we felt we should've won it, times when the Packers felt should've won".
Volvo halts production in SC as hurricane closes in
Announcing his evacuation order, SC governor Henry McMaster said an estimated one million people would be fleeing the coast. The Atlantic reports, "Since records began, only 10 major hurricanes have made landfall around the Carolinas".
When asked whether Matthews could've done something differently to avoid penalty, Corrente repsonded, "Not picked him up and drove him into the ground".
Quarterbacks are obviously the most valuable players on any football field and appear to be garnering undue protection from clean football plays as the NFL looks to protect its assets.
Minnesota fell behind early thanks to a blocked punt returned by rookie Josh Jackson to give Green Bay a 7-0 advantage but answered with Cousins' first TD pass, a 14-yarder to Laquon Treadwell. I got my head across, put my hands down. I thought I hit him within his waist, his chest.
