(Las Vegas, NV) -- Defense reigned supreme in the Vikings' 3-0 win over the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium.

It was the lowest scoring game since 2007. The two teams were scoreless for the first 58 minutes of the contest. Nick Mullens then took over for a woeful Josh Dobbs and led a go-ahead drive that was capped by a 36-yard field goal from Greg Joseph with 1:57 to go. Ivan Pace Jr. intercepted a pass from Aidan O'Connell on the Raiders next possession to virtually seal Minnesota's victory. Dobbs completed just ten of his 23 passes for 63 yards, while Mullens had 83 passing yards in fourth-quarter relief. Justin Jefferson caught two passes for 27 yards before exiting the game with a chest injury.

The Vikings still control the sixth-seed in the NFC playoff picture at 7-6. Minnesota visits Cincinnati on Saturday.
