Foretaste of Munich: Vikings win NFL guest appearance in London

Foretaste of Munich: Vikings win NFL guest appearance in London

Status: 02.10.2022 23:31

The Minnesota Vikings won their first international game of the NFL season.

A month and a half before their eagerly awaited first game of the elite class in Munich, the Vikings beat New Orleans Saints 28:25 in London on Sunday.

Vikings player Greg Joseph scored the decisive points in front of nearly 60,000 spectators at Tottenham Hotspur 24 seconds from the end with his fifth field goal of the day. With the last action, Saints kicker Will Lutz set a field goal attempt for a potential equalizer on the crossbars.

Four more matches outside the United States

Four more NFL games outside the United States are scheduled in the coming weeks: the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants (October 9 / Tottenham Hotspur) as well as the Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos (October 20 / Wembley) in turn.

On November 13, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play quarterback Tom Brady for the Seattle Seahawks in Munich, and on November 21 the Arizona Cardinals will play the San Francisco 49ers in Mexico City.

Billing turns a game against crows

The Buffalo Bills made up for their 17-point deficit against the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Game Best and avoided a second straight loss. The title favorite by many critics won the match in Baltimore 23:20.

The decision brought in a field goal by Tyler Bass as time ran out. Instead of a disappointing record of two wins and two losses, the Bills now have three wins and are on their way to the NFL playoffs. Midfielder Josh Allen got a touchdown pass and earned a touchdown himself. Playmaker Lamar Jackson gets a touchdown pass to the Ravens.

The only team unbeaten in the league is still the Philadelphia Eagles. The 29:21 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars was their fourth win, and 0:14 in the first quarter the Eagles didn’t fall either.

Defeat for St. Brown

Economos St. Brown lost to the New York Giants with the Chicago Bears 12-20. His brother Amon Ra St. Brown was unable to play due to an ankle injury and missed the Detroit Lions’ stunning 45-48 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Nuremberg’s Dominic Eberle made his Lions debut in the match, turning a field goal from 49 yards and scoring two more points, but he missed two more points attempts.

Meanwhile, in the first season after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger retired, the Pittsburgh Steelers continued to falter, including losing their home game to the long-known New York Jets. At 20:24 (6:10) Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubesky benched at halftime and replaced Kenny Pickett – who caused the turn twice, but couldn’t prevent the defeat either.
