Watch Vikings score on Cowboys with spectacular, one-handed catch

The Minnesota Vikings scored first Sunday night at AT&T Stadium and it came in spectacular fashion.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph made a one-handed snag in the back of the end zone to give the Vikings a 7-0 lead over the Dallas Cowboys with the extra point. Kirk Cousins made an awkward but impressive throw moving to his left to hit Rudolph for the one-yard pass. It capped a five-play, 53-yard drive that started when Brett Maher missed a 57-yard field goal attempt on the Cowboys’ first possession.

Cousins connected with Rudolph for a second touchdown in the final minute of the first quarter to give the Vikings a 14-0 lead. It was another one-yard score. Rudolph had two touchdown catches combined in the first nine games this season.
