Vikings win in overtime on 87-yard touchdown pass to Jarius Wright
With just over 10 minutes left in the overtime period, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw a screen pass to receiver Jarius Wright, who out-ran Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson down the right sideline for the long touchdown.
According to The Big Lead, the touchdown pass was the longest play from scrimmage for a touchdown in overtime since Garrison Hearst ran for a 96-yard touchdown against the Jets in 1998.
On Sunday, Wright caught four passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Bridgewater completed 19-of-27 passes for 309 yards and two touchdowns.
