Unreal!

It wasn't quite the Minneapolis Miracle, but the touchdown pass that Kirk Cousins threw to Adam Thielen with just over 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter was as good as it gets. 

Somehow, the ball found a way between two defenders into Thielen's hands as he backpedaled and fell into the front corner of the end zone. 

The unbelievable touchdown put the Vikings within two points, and Cousins dropped another dime in the corner of the end zone to Stefon Diggs for the tying two-point conversion. 

Green Bay somehow gave Mason Crosby a shot for a game-ending field goal but he missed the 52-yard try just to the left.
