The clock is ticking on the Vikings

Every time Sam Bradford drops back to pass, it's one one-thousand, two one-thousand -- a ticking clock until he gets hit. And thus, the Vikings' season is a season in jeopardy.

Jets defensive snap analysis (based on 58): DL -- L.Williams 57, Richardson 49, McLendon 25, Simon 2; LB -- Harris 58, Mauldin 49, Stanford 37, Catapano 26, Carter 21, J. Jenkins 18, Martin 5, Ochi 7; DB -- Skrine 58, Revis 58, Gilchrist 58, Pryor 54, M. Williams 40, Miles 4. Without Mo Wilkerson (inactive), they played more 3-4 than usual. That meant more playing time for Mauldin, less for McLendon. J. Jenkins also had a reduced role. Catapano was used in a sub package. Ochi made his NFL debut.

Jets offensive snap analysis (based on 68): QB -- Fitzpatrick 44, Smith 24; RB -- Forte 57, Powell 9, Pope 2; WR -- B. Marshall 65, Anderson 50, Enunwa 44, Peake 17, J. Marshall 4; TE -- Davis 51, Bostick 33, Dozier 8, Shell 1. Welcome back, Ground & Pound. OC Chan Gailey used the tight ends more than any game, mostly to block. He also used "jumbo" packages with extra OLM, Dozier and Shell. Powell's snap count was a season low. Peake leap-frogged J. Marshall as the No. 4 WR.

The Cardinals had the ball for 46:19 against the Seahawks. That's the second-highest time of possession for any team in any game since 2001.

The Seahawks managed just two field goals on 13 offensive possessions during their 6-6 tie to the Cardinals. Both teams missed chip shot field goals in overtime, seemingly trying to hand the game to each other. This week must be about finding answers on offense. Russell Wilson is clearly still not 100 percent, and the offensive line was shaky. The Seahawks will look to come up with fixes before next week's game against the Saints.

While he doesn't offer it, Wynn sports book director Johnny Avello says he makes the true odds of an NFL game ending in a tie at 275 to 1.

Vegas sports books rarely put up odds on NFL games ending in a tie because the odds are so slim. At the Wynn now and they didn't have it.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The tie is more of a win for Seattle than it is for Arizona. The Cardinals were a 24-yard field goal away from a third straight win that would have put them a half-game behind the first-place Seahawks and put their season squarely back on track after a 1-3 start. Seattle has to feel like it got away with playing a lousy game and not losing it, and they're still a game and a half up without having played their best. No one feels good, I'm sure, but this is tougher for Arizona.
