Kirk Cousins just had one of the clutch performances of the NFL season for the Minnesota Vikings.

The former Michigan State star led the Vikings to the NFL Playoffs as a wildcard team. Minnesota finished with a 10-6 record, but many still questioned the big-game ability of Cousins. That only persisted as the Vikings headed to New Orleans to face Drew Brees and the 13-win Saints.

Hopefully, that talk will subside at least for a while following Cousins’ road performance on Sunday. He threw for 242 yards and a touchdown with his work in overtime providing the difference.

It started with a long completion to wide receiver Adam Thielen. One of Cousins’ favorite targets, Thielen was able to create just enough space and produced a highlight-reel catch on the throw:

That play set the Vikings up inside the five-yard line. After being forced into a third-down play, Cousins once again came up with a clutch throw. He hit Kyle Rudolph in the corner of the end zone for the game-winner to take down the Saints:

What a sequence of plays, and what a game for Cousins!
