Vikings outlast Bills in epic OT clash (1:49)

The Vikings defeated the Bills in overtime. There is a time and a place for it.

7:54 PM ET

Don't count out the Minnesota Vikings. There are many ways to rally for victories.

The 33-30 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills may be the most stunning so far.

After a back-and-forth game between two of the best teams in the league, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson picked off Josh Allen in overtime to seal the victory.

Now is the time to look at us. We need to look at them now. The Vikings' easy schedule was pointed out by critics.

We don't want to prove them wrong. We want to keep proving ourselves right each and every time we step on the field.

I think the largest margin was 13. How could we come back from that deficit? Now is the time to look at us.

The Vikings took advantage of three turnovers by Allen in the fourth quarter and overtime and scored a touchdown when he fumbled in the end zone.

With 3:42 left in overtime, Greg Joseph hit a 33 yard field goal to give the Vikings a one point lead. The game ended when Allen forced a pass over the middle intended for Davis, which was picked off by Peterson and returned for a touchdown. The man slid to the turf after running out.

The Vikings got a great performance from Jefferson, who had 10 catches for 193 yards and a game-saving one-handed grab.

The Bills' hurry-up offense gave replay officials no time to review Davis' 20-yard reception on Buffalo's final drive of regulation, which ended with Tyler Bass tying the game on a 29-yard field goal. Davis didn't maintain control of the ball and it was ruled a catch at the Vikings' 40 with 17 seconds left in the game.

The Vikings' seven-game winning streak is their best since last year's eight-game run.

For the fifth time this season, Minnesota overcame a 212 minute deficit and won.

The Bills have lost two in a row and are no longer the conference's leader. They are a half a game behind the Miami Dolphins in the division.

C.J. Ham scored on a 3-yard run to cut Buffalo's lead to 27-23 in the fourth quarter.

The Bills appeared to have won the game when they stopped the Vikings on fourth-and-goal from the 1. On the very next play, Allen fumbled the snap, and the ball was recovered by Minnesota in the end zone.

Allen's third and final turnover came in overtime with the Bills in position to tie the game.

Kevin O'Connell said he was going to remember this one for the rest of his life. We had to continue to trade blows, body blows, haymakers, and just try to be ready for the next snap, as long as they allowed us to play today.

Jefferson had a big day, throwing for 358 yards.

Jefferson scored a touchdown on the first possession. On Minnesota's final drive of regulation, he made a 32-yard reception on a fourth-and-18. Jefferson got one hand on the ball and ripped it out of Lewis' grasp.

It felt as though it was real. Jefferson said it was like a film. When people are looking for you to make a play, that's what I enjoy the most.

In his first three seasons, Jefferson became the first player in the history of the league to top 100 yards receiving 20 times.

The Vikings scored on an 81-yard run by Dalvin Cook to cut Buffalo's lead to 27-23. Cook ran for 118 yards on 14 runs.
