The Minnesota Vikings beat the Buffalo Bills 17-10 in pre-season action last night.
Jerry Hughes and backup defensive end Eddie Yarborough each sacked Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, who played just two series.
Taylor also avoided a scare when he came up limping after Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen fell on him for an 11-yard sack on Buffalo’s opening drive. Taylor completed the series and was evaluated under a tent on the sideline before being cleared to return.
Bills receiver Anquan Boldin did not play after participating in just one practice after signing a one-year contract on Monday.
On the penalty front, Buffalo was flagged 10 times for 106 yards, including a pair of 15-yarders on special teams in the opening 16 minutes.
Also Thursday, the Dolphins beat the Falcons 23-20; it was the Browns over Saints 20-14; the Ravens over the Redskins 23-3: Jaguars over Patriots 31-24; Packers over Eagles 24-9; Broncos over Bears 24-17
