Vikings, Peterson Edge Jaguars 26-23 In Overtime
The Vikings nearly gave away a game that appeared to be theirs with just seconds left when Blaine Gabbert threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Cecil Shorts with :20 left. Viking quarterback Christian Ponder completed a pair of passes setting up kicker Blair Walsh for a 55-yard field goal. Walsh made the kick and made a 38-yard field goal in overtime that turned out to be the game-winner. Jacksonville got the ball once in overtime with the new overtime rule but were unable to score.
