GREEN BAY, . — Just as things were teetering on the edge of disaster, running back Dalvin Cook delivered a home-run play to spark life into the Minnesota Vikings.

Cook gashed the Green Bay Packers‘ defense on a 75-yard run to the house to make it a two-possession game at Lambeau Field. Cook had a maximum speed of 20.39 miles an hour, according to NextGen stats.

On the second play of a drive that began at 14:16, Cook found a hole that opened as most of the offensive line slid to its left. He cut up the field, whizzing past safety Darnell Savage and leaving three other Packers defenders in his dust as he ran down the Vikings sideline into the end zone. The touchdown put Cook at 104 yards from scrimmage on Sunday, the fourth of five games he surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage since Kevin Stefanski took over playcalling duties last December.
