The Minnesota Vikings have something special brewing up in the NFC North. The team just won their 11th game of the season, clinched the division title, and did so with a comeback victory never before seen in NFL history.

Down 33-0 at halftime during their Week 15 clash with the Indianapolis Colts, the unique mix of veteran talents (like quarterback Kirk Cousins and cornerback Patrick Peterson) and All-Pro youthful talent (Justin Jefferson, Dalvin Cook) had no worries about getting the job done.

In fact, Cousins detailed a funny story from the halftime locker room that was a jumping off point for Minnesota's insane win.

According to Cousins, the Vikings walked into the locker room and Peterson decided it was time to speak up and address the group. His message was simple: "All we need is five touchdowns." Cousins even thought it was a joke at first.

There was nothing funny about Minnesota's second half. They outscored Indianapolis 36-3 in the second half before a Greg Joseph field goal walked them off with a victory at the end of overtime.

This comeback included three fourth quarter touchdown passes from Cousins, one to each of his favorite offensive weapons (Jefferson, Cook and Adam Thielen).
