Minnesota ‘Trying To Prove Ourselves Right’ – Peterson

Minnesota came from behind with 2 ½ minutes remaining in regulation time for the fifth time this season on Sunday.

Trailing by 17 points in the second half, the Vikings prevailed over the Buffalo Bills to win 33-30 in overtime.

Patrick Peterson sealed the win by intercepting Josh Allen with a minute left in overtime. Buffalo was in position for a tying field goal, and it was Allen’s third interception of the game.

The indomitable Vikings’ only loss this season has come against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. With the Bills win, Minnesota matched its best record through nine games since 2009.

Their current win streak of seven games is their best run of results since they went eight unbeaten in 2017.

The NFC North leaders have struggled to win over critics because of the ease of their schedule. However, the results, and the manner of them speak for themselves according to Patrick Peterson.

“Look at us now. Look at us now. That’s all I could say,” Peterson said.

“We’re not trying to prove them wrong. We just want to continue to prove ourselves right each and every time we step on the field,” added Peterson, who had two interceptions.

“I believe the largest margin was 13, 14, 17? So if we’re not a good football team, how could you come back from that deficit? Look at us now.”

“I’m going to remember this one forever,” Minnesota Vikings first-year coach Kevin O’Connell said. “We just had to continue to trade those blows, body blows, haymakers, and just try to be ready for the next snap, as long as they let us continue to play today.”
