MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chad Beebe caught a 10-yard touchdown pass with 46 seconds left for Minnesota shortly after he muffed a punt that let Carolina pad its lead.

Then Joey Slye missed a 54-yard field goal try with 1 second remaining that preserved a 28-27 victory by the Vikings over the Panthers.

Kirk Cousins passed for 307 yards and three scores for the Vikings (5-6).

There was a total of 38 combined points scored  in a dizzying second half that started with Panthers rookie Jeremy Chinn turning fumble recoveries into touchdown returns on consecutive plays from scrimmage.

The Vikings will host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
