Vikings offense steals the show again with balanced blowout

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Case Keenum took the shotgun snap for Minnesota on the third play of the game and dropped back in a clean pocket, with no pressure from Tampa Bay in sight.

After Adam Thielen used a double move to gain a step on Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, Keenum let the ball fly up the left seam. Hargreaves tried to thwart the play by pulling back Thielen's right arm, but Keenum's throw was in the perfect spot.

Thielen tracked the ball over his shoulder and hauled it in with his opposite arm for a 45-yard gain. The Vikings scored on Dalvin Cook's first career touchdown run four plays later and cruised to a 34-17 victory on Sunday.
