Despite tight goal-line D, Vikings need better pass coverage

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) After all the long passing plays and fourth-down conversions the Minnesota Vikings surrendered against Denver, the defense still had the game in its hands.

Forcing three straight incompletions by Broncos quarterback Brandon Allen inside the 5-yard line, the Vikings and their fans sweated out the final 10 seconds and pulled out a critical victory despite a 20-0 halftime deficit.

Backup safety Jayron Kearse was targeted on two of the final three throws, cornerback Trae Waynes on the other.
