(Green Bay, WI) -- The Vikings earned a bittersweet 24-10 win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

The Vikings led by just one possession at halftime, but Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes in the third quarter to give Minnesota control of the game. However, Cousins left the game with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter and did not return. He finished the day with 274 passing yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. TJ Hockenson, KJ Osborn, and Jordan Addison all contributed at least 80 receiving yards in the victory, with Hockenson and Addison both finding the end zone.

The Vikings are on a three-game winning streak, and they remain in second-place in the NFC North at 4-4. Minnesota visits Atlanta on Sunday.
