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

Keenum opened the drive with a 12-yard pass to wide receiver Michael Floyd, and he later got the Vikings on the cusp of the goal line by finding Coley for 24 yards on third-and-7 from Buffalo's 26-yard line.

On defense, Edmond Robinson got the start at weakside linebacker over Emmanuel Lamur.
