Vikings Come Up Short in Second Preseason Game
The Minnesota Vikings gave up a touchdown in the final minutes of the game, falling to the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars 14-10 Saturday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
The game was dominated by two of the league's best defenses, sloppy play, and an officiating crew that threw a total of 20 penalty flags.
Minnesota starting quarterback Kirk Cousins completed just three of eight passes for twelve yards.
The Vikes are now 1-1 on the preseason, and will open the regular season on Sunday, September 9th against the San Francisco 49ers at U.S. Bank Stadium.
