Jaguars Vs. Vikings Reaction: Ugly Wins Still Count In The Standings

The Minnesota Vikings are undefeated following Sunday afternoon's overtime victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and, although it took overtime to do it, the win still counts in the standings as the Vikings were one of three teams in the NFC North to start their season with a win.

The one downside is that the win wasn't pretty, of course, but our friends over at Daily Norseman noted that even ugly wins are wins.

I thought that the Vikings had once again managed to find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

And it didn't happen. And it was great. One of the greatest endings to a Vikings game in recent memory, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing it on NFL Rewind this week (because, really, if this wasn't the best game of the week, it was certainly one of the top four, NFL Network).

Vikings fans would surely like to remove the drama, but they can't have too much to complain about this week.

For more on the Vikings, head over to the Daily Norseman or stick with SB Nation Minnesota. For more news, notes and analysis from around the NFL, check out SB Nation's NFL news hub.
