Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins flirted with a 0.0 quarterback rating for much of Sunday’s 28-11 loss to the Colts before finishing the afternoon with a slightly more robust 15.9 mark.

It was impressive enough for Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker to hit a game-winning field goal in overtime. To hit it three times was almost overkill.

Tyreek Hill‘s helmet came off after the Chiefs receiver somersaulted into the end zone for a 54-yard touchdown with 12:48 remaining in the fourth quarter.
