Jaguars At Vikings: Game Going To Overtime

It's been quite the flurry in the last couple of minutes at the Metrodome, but we'll try to recap it for you.

The Jaguars put together an impressive drive down the field on their final possession, capping it with a 39-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts with 20 seconds left in the game. The two-point conversion from Gabbert to Justin Blackmon made the score 23-20.

However, Christian Ponder completed a couple of passes for the Vikings, one to Devin Aromashodu and another to Kyle Rudolph to put the Vikings on Jacksonville's 38-yard line.

In came rookie Blair Walsh to attempt a 55-yard field goal to tie the game, and he left no doubt, drilling the kick down the middle with room to spare as time ran out, and we are tied at 23 and headed to overtime at the Metrodome in the 2012 season opener.

Minnesota won the overtime coin toss and will get the ball first. We'll have all the action for you right here.
