Despite all of the controversy and injuries surrounding their team, the Vikings simply will not give up this season.  It helps to play the Buccaneers, however the Vikings proved their determination and will on Sunday with a 19-13 overtime win in Tampa Bay.  Rookie linebacker Anthony Barr turned in perhaps the biggest highlight of the season so far for Minnesota, with an incredible forced fumble in overtime which he returned 27 yards for the game-winning touchdown.  Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had one of his best games of the season as well, throwing for 241 yards and a touchdown and playing mistake-free football.  Minnesota will be the only NFC North playing a game next weekend as they’ll host the Redskins.
