Vikings Lose Late Again

Vikings Lose Late Again

Brian Hoyer found Jordan Cameron from seven yards out with 51 seconds to play as the Browns beat the Vikings 31-27 in Minnesota.  Christian Ponder tossed for 228 yards and a pick for Minnesota, which dropped to 0-and-3.  He added 46 yards and two scores on the ground.  Adrian Peterson rushed for 88 yards and a TD on 25 carries.  The Vikings try to get their first win against the winless Steelers, Sunday in London.

The Vikings defensive backfield got beat up during the team’s loss to the Browns yesterday.  Cornerback Chris Cook suffered a groin injury in the first quarter and didn’t return.  Corner A.J. Jefferson left because of an ankle injury and safety Jamarca Sanford had a hamstring injury.
