Vikings Erase 17-Point Deficit to Stun Bills in Overtime Thriller (33-30, OT); WR Justin Jefferson Makes Catch of the Year
Game of the year? Better believe it. Week 10 had a number of epic showdowns on Sunday, but the Vikings-Bills thriller was next level. Buffalo held a 27-10 lead in the third quarter before Minnesota stormed back. The Vikings scored two touchdowns before QB Kirk Cousins engineered an epic two-minute drill drive where WR Justin Jefferson hauled in the catch of the year — a one-handed snatch at the summit. The Vikings got stuffed on the 1-yard-line in the final minute, but turned around and secured a fumble-recovery touchdown on the next play to take a 30-27 lead. The Bills kicked a game-tying field goal to end regulation (30-30), but Vikings kicker Greg Joseph kicked a 33-yard go-ahead field goal before Minnesota picked off Josh Allen to seal the win (33-30). After all was said and done, Minnesota ended the game on a 23-3 scoring run to improve to 8-1 and hand the Bills (6-3) their second straight loss.
