Making his first start at home for the Vikings, Joshua Dobbs threw for 268 yards, rushed for 44 more and scored two touchdowns.

The Vikings haven't lost since they put Justin Jefferson on injured reserve. They've won two straight games after putting Kirk Cousins on IR, and because of a five-game win streak, they're very much a factor in the NFC playoff race.

They improved to 6-4 with a 27-19 win over the Saints on Sunday, building a 24-point lead early in the third quarter and hanging on for the victory

The Vikings walked off to a standing ovation at halftime, with their 21-point lead the biggest halftime margin they'd built under Kevin O'Connell. They went up 27-3 with a field goal early in the second half, but punted on three of their next four drives with Greg Joseph missing a 54-yard field goal wide right on the other drive.
