Stephen Gostkowski kicks another game-winner as Titans stay undefeated

Titans fans wanted Stephen Gostkowski gone after Week One when he missed four total kicks, even after making the game-winner. He’s a hero for them now.

Gostkowski has hit the game-winner in all three of the Titans’ games.

He went 6-for-6 Sunday, nailing a 54-yarder with 6:31 left and a 55-yard game-winner with 1:44 to go. He also made from 39, 31, 30 and 51 yards and surely will win AFC special teams player of the week.

The Titans beat the Vikings 31-30, and Dan Bailey‘s 49-yard miss looms large now. Bailey was wide right, ending a streak of 22 consecutive makes.

The Vikings had 464 yards and the Titans 444 in an entertaining game Minnesota surely will feel it gave away. Minnesota had three turnovers, leaving it without a victory this season.

The Titans tried to shoot themselves in the foot, too, but overcame their mistakes.

Ryan Tannehill went 23-of-37 for 321 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Derrick Henry rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Kalif Raymond caught three passes for 118 yards.

Kirk Cousins was 16-of-27 for 251 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Rookie Justin Jefferson caught seven passes for 175 yards and a touchdown. Dalvin Cook rushed for 181 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries.

  1. After that awful loss, I have a hard time seeing the Vikings path to 2-14.

    With cook injured, were much more likely to slide into 1-15 or 0-16.

  2. I wouldn’t have gone for 2 when up by 5 as the defense was holding the Titans to FG’s most of the time.

  3. Good thing The Vikings have a clutch QB who is better than the aging, declining QB in Green Bay. So I’ve been told.

    0-3 couldn’t happen to a better fanbase.

    And is Dalvin hurt? AGAIN

    ————‘zzzzz

    Is Davante hurt again? Is he even playing tonight? Nobody talking about Jefferson who had a great day. When you have to kick 6 FGs to beat an 0-2 team that’s not good. If you watched the game you would know Titans got away with one.

  5. RT17 is legit and always has been. He was just stuck with a terrible coach and OC
    The guy is a gamer and never out of it
    Vikings are a trainwreck

  6. The Titans did “get away with one.”

    It shouldn’t have been that close as the titans should have won by three scores against—hands down—the worst franchise in Professional sports history.

    Enjoy your day!

  7. Cousins is not now nor has he ever been a franchise QB. Has there ever been paycheck thief at the Vikings QB position? Oh yeah, the last guy they overpaid for.

    Ah cheese eaters. I expect nothing less

    I know you don’t make predictions because then you might be wrong….you just tell us what happened after it happened.

    So what has happened to your Vikings?

  9. Ah cheese eaters. I expect nothing less
    …..
    Well, you spent all off-season talking trash in the Packer comment sections. What do you expect??

  10. Look on the bright side Vikings fans….your $12M (soon to be $20M+) pass rusher (Ngakoue) had a sack and two tackles.

  11. The Vikings bet the house that Cousins would step up to the next level, and are quickly losing that gamble. I love it.

  12. I would like to thank Rick Spielman, Mike Zimmer, and Kirk Cousins for making football unwatchable for my kids.

    A Vikings loss is almost as sweet as a Packers win.

    @@@@@@@@222

    Bud Grant is right. The Vikings losing is the packers Super Bowl.

  14. There is absolutely nothing standing in the way of Minnesota finishing 13-3, which would also give them home field advantage throughout the playoffs! No team wants to face them at home, with the energy and the excitement that Minnesota fans bring!

    And don’t tell me it can’t happen!! Cook proved that he is the best running back in the league today! And Jefferson! What a player we have there! With Cousins slinging the ball to him and Thielen, that offense is unstoppable!! And the best defense in the league showed it again today! How many times did they force Tennessee to settle for field goals! This is our year!!

  15. I thought the Vikings was supposed to be good?
    Too many “proper English” snafu’s to even comment on:…..it’s “were”.
    As for the person who claimed the “Bandwagon” Vikings fans were no where to be found…maybe so. But I have been a Vikings fan for 50 years. We true fans are still here.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    You wish. Four “real” SuperBowl wins serve our needs just fine, thank you very much.

  17. When your receiver has a 175 yard day and running back the same you usually come out a winner . this Vikings defense is a mess.

    Anyone who knows what the Packers were like in the 70’s and 80’s would also know where the real bandwagon fans are situated.

    Since Vikings fan is playing grammar police, it’s “snafus,” not “snafu’s.” No apostrophe.
    Also, it’s “nowhere,” not “no where.” One word.

    Vikings are a dumpster fire.
    ~~~~~~~~
    C’mon collector, that’s just an insult to dumpster fires everywhere.
    That sad sack Viking team has to be, without a doubt, the worst 0-3 team EVER!
    Silver Lining: at least they finally snapped their embarrassing streak of allowing safeties.

  21. Sole possession of last place in the NFC North. I wonder what it’s like to be looking up at the Lions?

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Any Packer fan who remembers what the Packers were like during the Dark Years and remained a solid fan is the exact opposite of bandwagon.

  23. Anyone who thinks the Vikings are going to be able to draft Lawrence and start him year 1 doesn’t realize that Cousins is not the problem. Your O-line and secondary are the problem.
