NFL Game Summary - Arizona at Minnesota



(Saturday, August 16)

Final Score: Minnesota 30, Arizona 28

Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Teddy Bridgewater threw two touchdown passes, including one with 18 seconds remaining that gave the Minnesota Vikings a 30-28 preseason victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Matt Cassel started under center for Minnesota and completed 12-of-16 passes for 153 yards and a touchdown, while the rookie first-round draft pick Bridgewater finished 16-for-20 for 177 and two scores in relief.

The Cardinals were leading 28-24 with 1:07 left when Bridgewater and the Vikings offense got the ball back on their own 17-yard line. Bridgewater found Rodney Smith for short gains of 10 and six yards and following a 12-yard completion to Jarius Wright, went back to Smith for 37 yards down the left sideline to the Arizona 18.

Four plays later, Bridgewater hooked up with Smith for a 2-yard, go-ahead score.

Joe Banyard carried six times for 64 yards for Minnesota, while tight end Kyle Rudolph caught four passes for 89 yards and a touchdown.

Drew Stanton had a touchdown pass for Arizona and Jonathan Dwyer, Robert Hughes and Zach Bauman had scores on the ground.

Dwyer's 1-yard plunge made it 7-0 early on, but the Vikings countered with a short Blair Walsh field goal and Cassel's 51-yard touchdown to Rudolph to go in front 35 seconds into the second quarter.

It was 21-13 in favor of the Cardinals through three quarters. Walsh kicked another short field goal to close the gap, and Allen Reisner caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Bridgewater midway through the fourth to give the Vikings a brief lead.

Bauman's 6-yard score with 1:11 remaining put Arizona back ahead prior to Bridgewater's comeback drive.
