ESPN comments:
 

Kirk Cousins became the first Vikings quarterback with 400 passing yards and four touchdowns in a game since Daunte Culpepper in 2004. He was 14-for-20 with 219 yards and 3 TDs in the fourth quarter and overtime after going 0-for-7 in the fourth quarter in Week 1. This was the first time since at least 2001 that the Vikings didn't lose when trailing by eight or more points in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. (They entered the game 0-76 in such situations since 2001.)

The biggest risers of the week are the Cincinnati Bengals, jumping ten spots from #23 to #13. The biggest falls of the week belong to the Ravens, Redskins, Texans, and Seahawks -- dropping seven spots each.

The Vikings face the Bills this Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
