Trailing by five, the Jaguars had to go the length of the field with just over a minute remaining. They had a little extra time thanks to an offensive penalty that they were able to decline, thus acting as a timeout. Then second year QB Blaine Gabbert struck. He tossed this perfect scoring pass to Cecil Shorts, who made an incredible over-the-shoulder grab. After the 2-point conversion, the Jags led 23-20.
But the Vikings quickly moved the ball into field goal range, and Blair Walsh hit a 55 yarder to tie it.
Minnesota won in overtime, 26-23.
