Anthony Barr forced a fumble on the first play of overtime and returned it 27 yards to score, giving the Minnesota Vikings a 19-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The stunning end Sunday came just 17 seconds after the Vikings (3-5) extended the game on Blair Walsh's 38-yard field goal on the final play of regulation.

Teddy Bridgewater threw for 241 yards, one TD and no interceptions to help Minnesota stop a three-game skid.

Mike Glennon threw a 7-yard scoring pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins to give Tampa Bay a 13-10 lead with 2:02 remaining. But the Bucs' porous defense couldn't stop Bridgewater from putting together a nine-play, 61-yard march to get the game into OT.

Glennon's pass to Seferian-Jenkins gained 10 yards before Barr stripped the ball from the rookie tight end and took it up the left sideline to score.
