The Vikings have shown a balanced offense through the first two games of the 2015 preseason. Of the five touchdowns, three have come through the air and two on the ground. Cordarrelle Patterson, MyCole Pruitt and Adam Thielen have been on the receiving end of touchdowns while Joe Banyard and Zach Line have both scored from the 1-yard line.
After trailing Pittsburgh early in the Hall of Fame Game, Mike Kafka found rookie TE MyCole Pruitt 34 yards down the field for the Vikings first touchdown of the 2015 preseason.
- Rookie WR Stefon Diggs came up just short of the end zone with a 62-yard punt return late in the 3rd quarter. After Diggs was pushed out of bounds at the 1-yard line, Joe Banyard punched it in for the final score of the game.*
- FB Zach Line capped off a five-play drive for the Vikings first touchdown of the preseason game. Lining up in the backfield, Line took the handoff from Teddy Bridgewater and barreled his way into the end zone.*
The Vikings capitalized on an Antone Exum Jr., takeaway, scoring three plays after his interception. In his first action of the preseason, QB Shaun Hill connected with WR Cordarrelle Patterson to help give the Vikings a 16-3 lead.
- Later in the 2nd quarter, Shaun Hill tossed his 2nd touchdown pass of the game, this time connecting with Minnesota native Adam Thielen from 15 yards out.*
