The Vikings seemed to have things in control on Sunday against the Bills, but let a victory slip through their fingers. Kyle Orton hooked up with rookie Sammy Watkins for a two-yard touchdown with just one second left to give the Bills a 17-16 victory over the Vikings. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater struggled yet again for the Vikings, throwing for just 157 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the loss. Fellow rookie Jerick McKinnon provided the biggest boost to the offense with 19 carries for 103 yards and may be the new-found starting running back of the future for the team. Minnesota will continue its stretch of road games next week in a very winnable contest against the Buccaneers.
