NFL: Vikings win game of the year against Bills

NFL: Vikings win game of the year against Bills

The determination of the Minnesota Vikings finally paid off in a chaotic end to the game, they who won 33-30 over the Buffalo Bills in overtime on Sunday.

In the Vikings’ last offensive streak (8-1) in regulation, trailing 27-23, Justin Jefferson stole the show and had one of the best one-handed catches of the year to place the his in good shape. Ultimately, the Bills defense held firm by stopping the Vikings’ four attempts to regain possession.

It was far from over, however, when Bills quarterback Josh Allen suffered a disaster at his 1-line when he fumbled the ball on the throw-in of his center. The latter was finally recovered by opposing linebacker Eric Kendricks for the touchdown which unexpectedly put the Vikings ahead 30-27.

The remaining 38 seconds was enough time for the Bills to cross the field and Tyler Bass to make a 29-yard field goal to lead into overtime.

The Vikings scored a field goal with just under 4 minutes left in overtime. The Bills threatened in turn afterwards, approaching the end zone, but Josh Allen sent his pass into the hands of Patrick Peterson to put an end to hostilities once and for all.

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​threw for 357 yards, and more than half were caught by Jefferson, who had 193 on 10 receptions.

The presence of Josh Allen was rather unexpected on Sunday but it was not enough against one of the powerhouses of the league. Allen had only practiced on a limited basis Friday after stretching his right elbow ligaments in the final minutes of the game against the New York Jets last weekend. He had missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday and his presence was therefore in doubt today, but he finally started for a 64th game in a row, he who has not been inactive since his rookie season in 2018 when A similar injury had caused him to miss four games.

The Vikings struck first, Kirk Cousins ​​initiating a six-play, 74-yard drive that was marked by a 46-yard pass to Justin Jefferson to drive into opposing territory. Jefferson then completed the job for the touchdown in the first quarter.

The Bills, however, replied immediately in a sequence initiated by a 43-yard punt return from Duke Johnson which placed his team in a favorable position. Devin Singletary tied the game and then scored a major again soon after, still in the first quarter. A 34-yard field goal from Tyler Bass made the Bills lead to 17-7 in the second quarter.

Allen widened the gap to 24-10 just before halftime by joining Gabe Davis, but the Vikings began to come back afterwards.

More details to come.
