Vikings beat Raiders 3-0 as Justin Jefferson is injured again and Joshua Dobbs is benched

LAS VEGAS - The Vikings ended their two-game losing streak, with a 3-0 victory over the Raiders on Sunday. But they'll go home with a long list of concerns.

The game was the first to end with a 3-0 score since Nov. 26, 2007, when the Steelers beat the Dolphins, and the Vikings scored the only points of the day late in the fourth quarter on their second drive with Nick Mullens at quarterback after coach Kevin O'Connell benched Joshua Dobbs.

Dobbs finished the day 10 of 23 for 63 yards, while being sacked five times. After he threw a high shot for Justin Jefferson across the middle and Raiders safety Marcus Epps drilled Jefferson in the ribs, the receiver left the game. Jefferson was transported to a local hospital as a precaution. Until Mullens hit T.J. Hockenson for 26 yards on his first play in the fourth quarter, Jefferson remained the team's leading receiver for the day with two catches for 27 yards.
