Vikings leaning hard on Jefferson in quest to save season

After Adam Thielen was injured on Minnesota's sixth offensive play Sunday, Kirk Cousins naturally focused on his other standout receiver, Justin Jefferson.

Jefferson responded with career highs of 11 catches and 182 yards, but the Vikings wasted that performance in a gut-wrenching 29-27 loss to Detroit.

It's becoming a trend.
