Vikings vs. Saints score, results: Minnesota survives London trip after Will Lutz misses last-second field goal – Sporting News

The Vikings survived their trip to London with a game marked by spectacular special teams play, beating the Saints 28-25 after Will Lutz missed a would-be, game-tying 61-yard field goal at the end of regulation.

Minnesota scored only two touchdowns on the day, a 15-yard touchdown reception by Alexander Mattison in the first quarter and a 3-yard jet sweep by Justin Jefferson in the fourth quarter. The remainder of the Vikings’ points came from kicker Greg Joseph, who made five field goals — but missed a point-after attempt — to help the Vikings beat New Orleans.

Special mention should also be made of Lutz, the Saints kicker who tied the game 25-25 with a 60-yard field goal with 1:51 remaining in regulation. But Joseph answered in kind with a 47-yard field goal with 24 seconds remaining.

Though Andy Dalton connected with rookie receiver Chris Olave for a 32-yard gain, the Saints could advance no further on two ensuing plays, forcing Lutz to attempt a second 60-plus-yard field goal to send the game to overtime. His attempt was agonizingly close but ultimately fell harmlessly to the turf at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And thus, the Vikings emerged as victors in the first of five international NFL games this season (and first of three in London). For the Vikings, quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 25 of 38 passes for 238 yards and one touchdown to one interception (while also taking three sacks).

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook led all rushers with 76 yards on 20 carries, adding 10 receiving yards on two catches. Justin Jefferson was impressive in his performance, catching 10 passes for 147 yards and the rushing touchdown on the day, often with All-Pro corner Marshon Lattimore in coverage.

Conversely, Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in replacement of the injured Jameis Winston. Running back Latavius Murray was also impressive as the primary back in relief of Alvin Kamara, who missed the game; he had 57 yards and a touchdown off 11 carries. Olave was also impressive, nabbing four catches for 67 yards and a 4-yard touchdown.

All times Eastern.

Final: Vikings 28, Saints 25

12:35 p.m.: Missed field goal, Saints. Devastation! Lutz doinked the field goal off the left upright and then the crossbar on the failed attempt. Minnesota survives the trip to London, beating the Saints 28-25.

12:35 p.m.: Timeout, Vikings (0:02).

12:34 p.m.: Olave nearly drags his toes on a 14-yard gain but only gets one foot down for an incompletion, bringing up a 61-yard field goal attempt by Lutz to tie the game.

12:33 p.m.: Dalton misses his receiver way over his head along the sideline. Saints may need another completion to feel comfortable with a game-tying field goal.

12:32 p.m.: Olave and safety Harrison Smith collide after the play, forcing a Minnesota timeout with 12 seconds left in the game.

12:32 p.m.: Dalton with a dart to Olave for a gain of 32 yards to the Minnesota 43! Incredible!

12:31 p.m.: Saints take over needing to get about 43 yards to get into field goal range.

12:30 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, VIKINGS. Joseph makes up for the missed PAT with his fifth made field goal of the game, this one from 47 yards out. That makes the score 28-25 Vikings with 24 seconds left.

12:30 p.m.: Timeout, Vikings (0:30).

12:29 p.m.: Vikings are hit for a loss of 1 on third-and-9. That will bring up a 47-yard field goal with 29 seconds remaining.

12:28 p.m.: Timeout, Saints (1:14).

12:28 p.m.: That’s a 1-yard gain on second-and-10.

12:27 p.m.: Timeout, Saints (1:19).

12:26 p.m.: That’s a 0-yard gain by Cook on first down.

12:27 p.m.: Timeout, Saints (1:24).

12:25 p.m.: Vikings are making waves on this drive with a 14-yard gain by Cook and a 39-yard reception by Jefferson down to the Saints’ 29-yard line. Wow.

12:24 p.m.: Vikings to take over at their 19-yard line following a short return.

12:22 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, SAINTS. New Orleans trots out kicker Will Lutz for the 60-yard field goal and he hammers it straight down the center with room to spare! Incredible kick that ties the game 25-25 with 1:51 left in the game!

12:19 p.m.: Two-minute warning (1:56).

12:19 p.m.: Dalton can’t find Callaway on third-and-9, bringing up decision time at the Minnesota 42. Saints have all three timeouts but no two-minute warning to work with.

12:18 p.m.: Dantzler with good coverage one-on-one on Olave down the sideline to break up a pass. Saints want pass interference, but it looks like a good no-call.

12:16 p.m.: New Orleans gets it all back with a 16-yard catch by Johnson and a 10-yard rush by Murray for a first down. Two plays later, Dalton rips it to Trautman for a 14-yard gain to the Minnesota 43-yard line.

12:15 p.m.: Saints get called for holding on the first-down play, setting up first-and-20 on what could be New Orleans’ final drive of the game.

12:10 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, VIKINGS. Jefferson has an easy walk-in touchdown on the end-around. Seems like the Saints lost him. Joseph’s point-after attempt is errant, however, keeping the Vikings’ lead at 25-22 with 4:15 in the game.

12:08 p.m.: Lattimore is called for pass interference on Thielen at around the 3-yard line, which is where Minnesota will take over with first-and-goal. That’s a 39-yard penalty.

12:07 p.m.: Mathieu is called for illegal hands to the face (a questionable call) that wipes down an incompletion on third-and-10. Vikings have a fresh set of downs at the New Orleans 46.

12:05 p.m.: Nice defensive play by Lattimore to jar the ball loose on Jefferson and keep him from his 10th catch of the game.

12:04 p.m.: Osborn has his first catch on third-and-4 for a 6-yard gain to the Vikings 49. Timely.

12:03 p.m.: Demario Davis sacks Cousins for a loss of 11 yards, bringing up second-and-21. Cousins follows that up with a 17-yard connection to Jefferson to make it a manageable third-and-4.

12:01 p.m.: Vikings face third-and-3 from their own 32, and Cousins finds Jefferson for a 3-yard gain to the 35. Minnesota also accepts a 5-yard holding penalty, giving it a fresh set of downs either way.

11:58 a.m.: 2-POINT CONVERSION, SAINTS. New Orleans makes it a three-point game as Dalton finds Landry late — but all alone — in the flats for a successful conversion. Saints lead 22-19 with 9:29 left in the game.

11:57 a.m.: TOUCHDOWN, SAINTS. New Orleans takes its first lead of the day with a 2-yard score by Hill off the right tackle. That makes it 20-19 Saints, who are going for a 2-point conversion.

11:56 a.m.: Dalton finds tight end Adam Trautman in the flat for an 11-yard gain down to the 2-yard line. Nice play by the pass-catcher to give the Saints first-and-goal from short distance.

11:54 a.m.: Dalton finds Tre’Quan Smith for 18 yards to the 21-yard line off the play-action. Nice play there.

11:52 a.m.: Saints are going heavy with Murray here in the fourth quarter, as he has gains of 8, 6 and 7 yards on consecutive plays; the first was a shoestring tackle by Peterson.

11:48 a.m.: FIELD GOAL, VIKINGS. Following a 6-yard gain on third down, Joseph hits his fourth field goal of the day, this one from 46 yards, to give Minnesota a 19-14 lead with 14:14 left in the game.

Third quarter: Vikings 16, Saints 14

11:44 a.m.: Vikings try to get the Saints to jump offside on third-and-21. New Orleans doesn’t budge, and that will be the end of the third quarter.

11:43 a.m.: Make it second-and-25 from the 39 following a false start.

11:42 a.m.: Following an 11-yard gain by Cook on the next play, Cousins is called for intentional grounding after throwing it away with Jordan in his face. Vikings have second-and-20 from the 34.

11:40 a.m.: Vikings fake the punt on fourth-and-2 from the Saints’ 47, and Ryan Wright hits Jalen Nailor for a gain of 13 yards to the Saints’ 34! Timely special teams trickery.

11:38 a.m.: Kene Nwangwu returns the ball 33 yards to the Vikings 30, then gets an extra 15 yards added on following an unnecessary roughness penalty on Andrew Dowell. Vikings have great field position at their 45-yard line.

11:33 a.m.: TOUCHDOWN, SAINTS. One play later, Murray powers through a would-be tackler in Akayleb Evans for a 1-yard touchdown. That brings the score to 16-14 Minnesota with 3:49 left in the third quarter.

11:33 a.m.: Danielle Hunter saves a touchdown run on the zone read keeper by Dalton. Saints have it third-and-goal from the 1.

11:32 a.m.: Nice connection on the next play, as Dalton finds Callaway with a back-shoulder throw for a gain of 33 yards to the Vikings’ 8-yard line.

11:31 a.m.: Saints rush to the next play and net a loss of a yard on a Hill keeper. Following that, Saints are hit for a false start to bring up second-and-16

11:29 a.m.: Dalton connects with Callaway for 5 yards for the team’s first fourth-down conversion of the year. That might be a bit of a generous spot by officials, as it looks like Callaway was brought down at the line to gain.

11:28 a.m.: Dalton had Olave all by himself going up the right sideline but the QB didn’t see him soon enough and underthrew him. Veteran Patrick Peterson made a nice play to bat the ball away and bring up fourth-and-4 from the Minnesota 41.

11:26 a.m.: Saints getting some nice chunk plays on offense on the ensuing drive, including 15 yards from Marquez Callaway and runs of 10 and 6 yards by Murray. New Orleans is in Vikings territory.

11:24 a.m.: Jefferson is irritated that Cousins missed him by himself in the corner of the end zone.

11: 22 a.m.: FIELD GOAL, VIKINGS. Minnesota takes advantage of the turnover for a third Joseph field goal, this one from 24 yards out. Vikings lead 16-7 with 9:23 in the third quarter.

11:21 a.m.: Cousins had Jefferson one-on-one in coverage vs. Lattimore, but threw it behind his receiver with Davenport in his face. Jefferson can’t adjust enough to make the catch.

11:19 a.m.: Minnesota takes a delay of game to back it up to the 9.

11:18 a.m.: One play later, Cousins finds Jefferson for a gain of 40 yards down to the 4-yard line. Looks like the Saints defenders ran into each other, allowing for him to be so open.

11:17 a.m.: Fumble recovery, Vikings. Harty tried too hard for return yardage on the punt return, and Kris Boyd causes the fumble and recovers it at the Saints’ 44. Gut punch for New Orleans.

11:16 a.m.: Saints’ defense stands strong for a three-and-out, forcing a throwaway by Cousins with a four-man rush.

11:10 a.m.: Dalton hits Minnesota’s Cameron Dantzler in the numbers but the latter drops it. He plays it safe on the ensuing play for a 7-yard dump-off to Ingram to bring up fourth-and-7. Vikings have it first-and-10 at their 15 following the punt.

11:09 a.m.: Dalton throws a wobbler to Olave for 20 yards to the New Orleans 40-yard line. Nice start.

11:08 a.m.: Deonte Harty takes the ball from a yard deep in the end zone for a return of 21 yards out to the 20.

10:52 a.m.: Cousins goes to Irv Smith Jr. on third down but the tight end can’t reach the line to gain, bringing up fourth-and-8. Joseph coming on for another field goal.

10:50 a.m.: Fumble recovery, Vikings. Disaster for the Saints, as Dalvin Tomlinson strip-sacks Dalton and Harrison Phillips recovers the ball. Minnesota has it at the New Orleans 20 with less than a minute in the half.

10:47 a.m.: FIELD GOAL, VIKINGS. Greg Joseph’s 28-yard field goal is good, giving the Vikings a 10-7 lead with 1:04 left in the half.

10:46 a.m.: Cousins had Johnny Mundt free in the flat, but he dropped it. That brings up fourth-and-1.

10:45 a.m.: Saints take a timeout with 1:10 on third-and-1 from the New Orleans 10.

10:42 a.m.: Two-minute warning.

10:41 a.m.: And now Cousins finds Jefferson — who cooked Lattimore — for a gain of 13 yards to the 30-yard line. Following that, Cousins connects with Jefferson for 11 yards to the 19 (again with Lattimore in coverage).

10:41 a.m.: Saints can’t get to Cousins on third-and-8 as he finds Thielen for a gain of 11 to the Saints 44.

10:35 a.m.: Dalton looks to call a screen at the line but it’s sniffed out as Jarvis Landry is hit for only a yard gain on third-and-3. Reagor takes a fair catch at the Minnesota 44 following the punt.

10:31 a.m.: Cam Jordan and Marcus Davenport converge on Cousins for a 8-yard sack on third-and-3. Minnesota punting from its 42.

10:29 a.m.: Cousins to Adam Thielen to the Minnesota 43 for a gain of 16 yards and a first down.

10:23 a.m.: TOUCHDOWN, SAINTS. New Orleans answers the Vikings with a 5-yard touchdown to the rookie Olave. Nice patience by the receiver and Dalton to let the defenders clear out to give the receiver space for the catch. That makes it 7-7 with 8:57 left in the half.

10:21 a.m.: Ingram gets 5 yards on third-and-2 to get New Orleans first-and-goal from the 10.

10:18 p.m.: Dalton getting some intermediate completions of 14 and 13 yards to Olave and Juwan Johnson, respectively. Saints are moving near the 35-yard line of the Vikings.

10:16 a.m.: Taysom Hill sees his first action, taking the quarterback keeper for a 4-yard gain for the Saints’ first first down of the game. New Orleans now driving into Minnesota territory.

First quarter: Vikings 7, Saints 0

10:13 a.m.: Latavius Murray runs it 7 yards to near midfield to bring the first quarter to a close.

10:12 p.m.: Interception, Saints. Tyrann Mathieu gets his first pick of the season by jumping the route! He returns it 3 yards to the New Orleans 40.

10:11 a.m.: Cine has been carted off the field with what appears to be a significant leg injury. He was the No. 32 overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft.

10:09 a.m.: Vikings safety Lewis Cine was injured on the punt return and is still down on the turf getting tended to by trainers.

10:05 a.m.: Jalen Reagor returns the punt 23 yards to the Vikings’ 45-yard line.

10:05 a.m.: Za’Darius Smith with the third-down sack for a loss of 5 yards on Dalton to bring up the punt. Nice free-agent pickup from NFC North opponent Green Bay.

9:59 a.m.: Nothing doing on third down for Minnesota; Cousins is sacked by Kentavius Street on third-and-9 for a loss of 5 yards, bringing up the punt. Vikings punt goes for 33 yards to the Saints’ 12-yard line.

9:58 a.m.: Vikings again are moving, already past midfield and driving.

9:50 a.m.: Saints go three-and-out after Ingram appears to pick up the yardage needed off a third-down screen. The play was wiped after a player was penalized for being too far downfield. Punt incoming.

9:45 a.m.: TOUCHDOWN, VIKINGS. On the ensuing play, Cousins finds running back Alexander Mattison on a tunnel screen. He makes a man miss and gets great blocking en route to the touchdown. Vikings lead 7-0 with 8:12 left in the first quarter.

9:45 a.m.: K.J. Osborn has an easy touchdown in the flats, but the play is wiped due to an illegal pick by Jefferson. That makes it third-and-goal from the 15.

9:42 a.m.: Cousins finds Dalvin Cook out of the backfield in man-to-man coverage. That converts third down and Minnesota is 5 yards away from a game-opening score.

9:40 a.m.: Marshon Lattimore nearly picks off Kirk Cousins in defense of Justin Jefferson, but the play is wiped by defensive holding away from the play. Vikings are driving inside the Saints red zone.

8:07 a.m.: Some notable inactives for the Saints today, including Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and Jameis Winston. Looks like it’ll be the Andy Dalton, Mark Ingram and Chris Olave show.
