NFL Preseason Roundup: Keenum shines for Vikings in win

The Vikings were already without projected starting running back Latavius Murray (ankle) and backup Jerick McKinnon (lower leg) when Bishop Sankey injured his knee in the third quarter and had to be helped off the field.

On Thursday, August 10, 2017, the Vikings traveled to Buffalo to check out just how their team stacks up, challenge young players, and try to determine which players will make the final roster and which ones will end up being released.

The Vikings tied the score 3-3 on a 36-yard field goal by Kai Forbath late in the second quarter.

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.

PENALTIES: Buffalo was flagged 10 times for 106 yards, including a pair of 15-yarders on special teams in the opening 16 minutes.

With the reigning Super Bowl MVP sitting out, Jimmy Garoppolo completed a Brady-like 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns.

In the battle to be Minnesota's kickoff returner, rookie Rodney Adams got all three attempts Thursday and averaged 21.7 yards.

Coley, meanwhile, was impressive on offense. Rookie running back Dalvin Cook rushed for 13 yards on five carries and caught four passes for 30 yards. Tyrod Taylor was 5 of 8 passing for 46 yards.

In his Vikings debut, St. Paul native Michael Floyd had two catches for 20 yards.
