Vikes Beat Raiders in Storm Delayed Game
Minneapolis, MN (Minnesota News Network) - With Saturday's 20-12 win over Oakland, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer are 7-0 in exhibition games for the Vikings.
Bridgewater hit 10 of 14 passes for 89 yards and one TD in the win over the Raiders. The game was delayed for more than an hour when heavy storms moved through. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, from the same 2014 NFL draft class as Bridgewater, was 4 of 8 for 78 yards.
Former Viking Christian Ponder got a few boos before hitting 7 of 11 for 69 yards.
The Raiders were called for 13 penalties and Vikings kicker Blair Walsh had a game to forget, missing all three field goal attempts and one PAT.
