Vikings get a touchdown, didn't need it to beat Ravens

Protesters outside of U.S. Bank Stadium "took a knee" before the Minnesota Vikings game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

In the absence of targets, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn't have much of a chance, though a late touchdown pass applied some lipstick to this particular pig. Michael Campanaro has a punt return for a touchdown, and Bobby Rainey has just one of two kickoff returns in the National Football League this season for a score.

Sadly, none of this comes as a surprise.

Murray rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown and Kai Forbath kicked six field goals to lift the Vikings to a 24-16 victory over the Ravens.

The Ravens entered the game with just four wide receivers as Jeremy Maclin (shoulder), Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Chris Matthews (hamstring) were ruled out. He averaged 6.8 yards per completion and finished the game 27-of-39 for 186 yards and a touchdown. The only healthy receivers were Moore, Campanaro and recently signed Griff Whalen. The defensive end became the sixth player to record a sack in each of his team's first seven games to start the season since the sack became an official statistic in 1982.

As a result, the Ravens didn't get in the red zone until 1:14 left in the game, when they trailed by 15 points.

"Once he went out we weren't able to really take any deep shots over the top of them for whatever reason, whether it was personnel or what they were giving us", Flacco said. We can't look at it that way.

"Every time we're in scoring position, we're just kicking and kicking", Forbath said.

Forbath and Ravens kicker Justin Tuck combined for three 50-plus-yard field goals in the game's first 20 minutes as the teams struggled to generate any offensive momentum. But this defense has grown accustomed to the small margin for error provided by the Baltimore offense.

"Those cliches like "worn down" and 'gap control, ' it's just all meaningless chatter", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after his team gave up 169 yards rushing. "We went in here thinking they had a good defense and we had a good defense". We didn't turn the ball over, and that was a goal in this game. "I think it's good where our offense understands where they have to be to get the field goal if we're not going to get the third downs".

"When we know all we need to do is get the ball to the 35 and we're going to get three points, it's great", Rudolph said.
