Minnesota Vikings 24, Dallas Cowboys 21
It wasn't necessarily pretty but it's a victory the Minnesota Vikings will take. The Vikings defeated the Cowboys 24-21 in what was dubbed "The Desperation Bowl." Trailing 14-7, Percy Harvin brought some energy into the Metrodome when he returned a kickoff 95 yards to pay dirt. Adrian Peterson followed that up with a 1 yard touchdown run. A Dez Bryant 31 yard touchdown catch evened up the score but Ryan Longwell's 38 yard field goal with 4 minutes remaining put the game away. The Cowboys were guilty of 11 penalties and now put their season in jeopardy sitting at 1-4.
