Cousins-Jefferson connection strong for Vikes with Jets next

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The long pass from Kirk Cousins up the left sideline landed in Justin Jefferson's arms in just the right spot in the fourth quarter of Minnesota's game with New England, a split second before two Patriots defensive backs slammed into the Vikings star.

Jefferson kept the ball secure for a 36-yard reception as he hit the turf, before springing to his feet, flexing his muscles in celebration and screaming to the roaring crowd. The Vikings scored the go-ahead touchdown on the next play, after yet another contested catch by the indefatigable Jefferson.

"I love this team. I'd do anything for it, and when that ball's in the air, it's mine," Jefferson said.
