Osborn giving Vikings' offense much-needed extra dimension

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) As Kirk Cousins rolled to the right out on third down in overtime of a game the Minnesota Vikings badly needed to win, Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen were covered.

K.J. Osborn was open on a crossing route, so Cousins delivered a difficult throw on the run and off balance. Osborn secured the crucial catch for 13 yards, despite the ball being slightly behind him and dangerously close to the Carolina cornerback in coverage.

Four plays later, Osborn was diving across the front corner of the end zone to win the game. Finally, in his fourth season with the Vikings, Cousins has a viable No. 3 wide receiver to go to.
