    Despite 5 turnovers, Vikings secure win over Panthers
    In what continues to be a commin theme for these Minnesota Vikings, they overcome 5 turnovers to improve to 2-3 on this young season.​
    Coach Jeremy made a gametime decision and gave Tim Tebow the start at QB. Tebow quickly made Coach Jeremy second guess his decision as Tebow threw an interception on his first pass attempt. Not wasting anytime Matt Moore was quickly reinstituted back into the starting role. But he didnt fair any better as he went on to throw 3 interceptions himself.​
    The Vikings opened the scoring with an Adrian Peterson 69-yd scamper off right tackle. The Panthers quickly answered when Jimmy Clausen found WR Brandon Lafell matched up with a LB and hit him for a 79-yd scoring strike.​
    The 2nd quarter began with Deangelo Williams rumbling 84yds throught the heart of the vikings defense. Minnesota closed out the first half scoring with a Toby Gerhart 1-yd TD dive and finally when Tim Tebow came in for goal line package and hit WR Mohammed Massoquoi for the 3-yd TD pass.​
    HALF
    Vikings-21
    Panthers-14
    The 3rd quarter was highlighted with a TD pass from each QB and a FG by the Panthers.​
    3rd Qtr
    Vikings-28
    Panthers-24
    The fourth quarter was maybe one the the craziest I have participated in. Matt Moore committed two interceptions BOTH going the other way for the score. Then on the ensuing KO Minnesota Darius Reynaud took the kickoff 99-yds for the TD. Panthers now lead 38-35 with 5:14 on the clock. The Vikings defense dug deep and made a stand on a short 3rd down. Panthers then punt to CB Chris Johnson and he begins to zig-zag through the Panthers coverage and turns on the jets and crosses the goal line for 85yd punt return. Vikings now lead 42-38 with 2:29 on the clock. Jimmy Clausen leads his team to midfield when he heaves up a bomb to Steve Smith along the left sideline. Aforementioned Chris Johnson leaps up and snags the interception at the goal line and gets tackled in the endzone for the apparent touchback. But the referees huddle together and amazingly decide that Chris Johnson picked off the ball,landed at the one yd line then got tackled in the endzone for what is now a SAFETY. The clock now reading inside two minutes Coach Jeremy cannot challenge the apparent mistake made by the officials. Replay after the game shows Johnson landed one foot at the one and the other in the endzone. he did not establish himself in the field of play and thus could not be tackled for a safety. So in miraculous fashion the Panthers HUGELY BENEFITED from the thrown intercetion as they now will get the ball close to midfield from the safety punt and only need a FG to win. But the Madden gods intervened and SS Jamarca Sanford was the benefactor of tipped ball by the Panthers WR and he came down with the game clinching interception.​
    FINAL
    Vikings-42
    Panthers-40
    MVP
    Kevin Williams
    3 sacks, 7 tackles
