MINNEAPOLIS — Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has thrown his 100th touchdown pass as a Minnesota Viking.
Cousins found Justin Jefferson for a 12-yard touchdown with 7:26 left in the first quarter for a 7-0 lead against the Cleveland Browns.
It was the 199th of his career, tying him with Phil Simms and Alex Smith for 46th in NFL history.
Cousins appeared to have connected with Jefferson for the score earlier in the possession but it was negated because he had crossed the line of scrimmage before letting the ball go.
The touchdown was the 10th of Jefferson's young career and his ninth in 10 home games.
Cousins was 6-for-6 for 59 yards during the opening drive.
