The Minnesota Vikings shut out the Las Vegas Raiders 3-0 in a low-scoring affair at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. The Vikings improved their record to 7-6, while the Raiders fell to 5-8.
The only points of the game came from a 42-yard field goal by Vikings kicker Greg Joseph in the second quarter. Both teams struggled to move the ball and convert on third downs, as the defenses dominated the game.
The Raiders had a chance to tie the game in the final minute, but quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw an interception to Vikings safety Harrison Smith, who sealed the win for the visitors.
The Vikings were led by running back Alexander Mattison, who rushed for 66 yards on 18 carries. Quarterback Nick Mullens, who replaced an injured Joshua Dobbs in the first half, completed 10 of 15 passes for 83 yards. Tight end T.J. Hockenson had five catches for 53 yards.
The Raiders' offense was stifled by the Vikings' pass rush, which sacked Garoppolo four times and forced two turnovers. Garoppolo finished with 171 passing yards on 21 of 34 attempts. Wide receiver Davante Adams had seven receptions for 53 yards. Running back Josh Jacobs had 34 rushing yards on 12 carries.
The Vikings will host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15, while the Raiders will travel to Denver to face the Broncos.
