Cousins, Vikes lament mistakes, opportunities lost vs. Pack

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Near the end of an already flawed performance, Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings were in prime position to pull ahead of the Green Bay Packers and make all the cringe-worthy plays that came before moot.

Then Cousins made the mistake of all mistakes, a rookie-like decision to throw off balance toward Stefon Diggs in a crowd after rolling out on first-and-goal and facing pressure by the Packers. Kevin King made the leaping interception in the corner of the end zone, and the Vikings wound up with a most agonizing defeat after a game that was well within their grasp to win.

"It was just a gut-wrenching loss," Cousins said. "Proud of the way my teammates kept fighting, but very disappointed in my performance."
