The Minnesota Vikings defeated the New York Jets 30-24 on an 87-yard touchdown catch by Jarius Wright in overtime Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings scored a touchdown on the first and last play of the game. The Vikings offense was slightly better than average, while the defense was slightly below average. Teddy Bridgewater saved the Vikings in the game and may be the franchise quarterback they have sought now for some time.
Jarius Wright’s 87-yard touchdown reception from Teddy Bridgewater in overtime gave the Minnesota Vikings a 30-24 victory over former teammate Percy Harvin and the New York Jets on Sunday.
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr is out for the game against the New York Jets. Barr missed practice all week with a knee injury and was listed as doubtful. The rookie leads the Vikings in tackles, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries. This is his first absence this season. He’s replaced in the lineup by Gerald Hodges.
The Minnesota Vikings may be without three rookies for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. Running back Jerick McKinnon has been ruled out for the second consecutive week and linebacker Anthony Barr and cornerback Jabari Price are listed as doubtful. The Vikings have seven players listed on their injury report and the Jets have nine listed on theirs.
Minnesota wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson’s playing time has dwindled to the point where he had only three snaps with the offense in the last game. Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner confirmed the obvious Thursday when he said Charles Johnson has replaced Patterson as the starter at the “X” position once commonly known as the split end.

The Minnesota Vikings used two big special teams plays to defeat the Carolina Panthers 31-13 Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. Adam Thielen and Everson Griffen returned a pair of blocked punts for touchdowns in the first half. Teddy Bridgewater threw a pair of touchdown passes to help the blowout. The defense struggled to stop the run, but made plays in the second half when they needed to.
Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon will not play against Carolina on Sunday because of an injury to his lower back. McKinnon didn’t practice all week. He was listed as doubtful. The rookie said Friday his condition is nothing he “can’t play through,” but he confirmed he will be held out against the Panthers. That will mean more time in the backfield for Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and perhaps Ben Tate.
In the spirit of the holiday, hundreds of volunteers are making the day a little brighter for those in need. About 500 people gathered at the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center in Minneapolis Thursday afternoon for a Thanksgiving meal.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer thinks Adrian Peterson might return to the team after he’s reinstated into the NFL next spring, according to a report from ESPN.com.
Adrian Peterson’s hearing for the appeal of his suspension will be held on Dec. 2. And it will not be in front of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL announced Friday that longtime hearing officer Harold Henderson will preside over the proceedings involving the Minnesota Vikings star running back.
Minnesota Vikings running back Matt Asiata will miss Sunday’s game against Green Bay because of a concussion. Asiata has not yet been cleared to practice. Running back Jerick McKinnon was listed as probable to play the Packers after participating in Friday’s practice on a limited basis.
The Minnesota Vikings are thin on healthy running backs with Matt Asiata out and Jerick McKinnon banged up. McKinnon is expected to play with a lower back issue, but the team claimed Ben Tate off waivers as insurance. Sharrif Floyd’s status is the biggest question mark of any injury on the team. He banged knees with a teammate and was held out of practice because of it. The Vikings list 13 players on their injury report and the Green Bay Packers list eight on theirs.
