CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he wants his team to find a killer instinct. For now, he’s happy to settle for another win. The Vikings (3-3) squandered an 11-point lead in the final 4:41 of regulation, then got a 27-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to K.J.
A 96-yard game-tying drive almost undid the carnage the Vikings defense wrought on Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold, who was sacked four times and committed two turnovers.
