The sixth-year player engineered a pair of scoring drives - both set up by passes to rookie receiver Stacy Coley. Buffalo took the lead early in the second quarter on a 42-yard kick by Stephen Hauschka and the Vikings answered with a 36-yarder from Kai Forbath at 3:26 of the second quarter. The drive ended with a 2-yard touchdown run from fullback C.J.

Defensively, the Vikings were fine.

The Vikings signed Keenum in April as insurance, with Bridgewater still recovering from a serious left knee injury sustained a year ago.

The first-team defense held Buffalo to no points in two series. Jerry Hughes and backup defensive end Eddie Yarborough each sacked Bradford, who played just two series. Taylor came up gimpy and received attention from the medical staff on the sideline before returning on the next possession.

Peterman's touchdown pass was Buffalo's first touchdown of the preseason.
