Rapid Reaction: Minnesota Vikings

TAMPA, Fla. -- A few thoughts on the Minnesota Vikings' 19-13 win in overtime Sunday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium:

What it means: In what looked destined to be another last-minute collapse when Mike Glennon hit Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a touchdown with two minutes left in regulation, the Vikings scratched out a win that ends a three-game losing streak and could help build momentum before their bye week. Teddy Bridgewater directed a nine-play, 61-yard drive for a game-tying field goal in regulation, and linebacker Anthony Barr -- who was in coverage with Xavier Rhodes on the Buccaneers' touchdown -- redeemed himself with a forced fumble that he ran in for a touchdown on the Buccaneers' first offensive play of overtime. It was a stunning end to a flawed game between two losing teams, but the Vikings' two first-round picks came up big when it mattered most.

Clock error hurts at end of regulation: Greg Jennings appeared to go out of bounds after catching a 10-yard pass from Bridgewater for 10 yards and a first along the left sideline on the Vikings' final drive. The clock, however, continued to run after the play, costing the Vikings valuable time as they tried to score a game-winning touchdown. The extra seconds might have given Bridgewater a chance to throw into the end zone; without them, however, the Vikings let the clock run down following Bridgewater's final completion to Chase Ford with 22 seconds left, choosing to play for overtime instead of risking a sack or a rushed decision from their rookie QB.

Patterson gets involved: Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was more involved early in the game than he has been in recent weeks, and he finished with six catches for 83 yards as well as a 10-yard gain on a jet sweep. Bridgewater looked for Patterson on the first three plays of the Vikings' two-minute drill and finished the day with 12 targets.

Game ball: Barr was in coverage on the Buccaneers' final touchdown, but he's the game-ball winner for his tour de force on the final play of the game when he ripped the ball from Seferian-Jenkins' hands and returned it for a game-winning touchdown. It was Barr's third fumble recovery in two games. He also had eight tackles and a sack. He's still learning as a rookie, but he's continuing to show signs that he's going to be a dominant defender for the Vikings.

What's next: The Vikings (3-5) return home for their final game before the bye week, facing the Washington Redskins on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium.
