Vikings' Justin Jefferson tops 100 yards in quarter for first time; sets up TD vs. Packers

MINNEAPOLIS - The first quarter of the Minnesota Vikings' NFC North battle with the rival Green Bay Packers couldn't have gone any better for Justin Jefferson.

The receiver turned three targets into three receptions for 104 yards against the Packers, including a 56-yard catch that set up a 1-yard rushing touchdown from Dalvin Cook to give the Vikings an early 9-3 lead.

Facing second-and-7 from Minnesota's 43-yard line, quarterback Kirk Cousins faked a handoff to Cook and launched a deep ball to Jefferson down the Vikings' sideline.
