Vikings beat Raiders 3-0 in bore fest

The Minnesota Vikings and the Las Vegas Raiders produced the NFL’s lowest scoring game since 2007 with an unbelievably boring 3-0 win for the Vikings.

The winning score arrived with 1:57 remaining in the 4th quarter off the boot of Greg Joseph and spared the crowd having to watch another 15 minutes. The Vikings couldn’t even muster 100 yards passing, and both teams barely tipped 200 yards of total offence apiece.

VIKINGS KEEP PLAYOFF HOPES ALIVE

Nick Mullens replaced an effective Joshua Dobbs and did eventually produce some points. “I felt like my trust in Nick with his preparation he could be called upon,” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said. “We made sure he got some reps last week so he was ready to go, and he did exactly that. Went out and made some critical, critical plays to move the chains and ultimately get us in range for the very limited amount of points we got today.”

“You never know when your name is going to be called, but you prepare and work as hard as you can and trust that there’s a plan out there for you,” Mullens said. “I did that, stepped in. The guys did an incredible job. … It doesn’t matter what it looks like, a win is a win.”
