Jarius Wright's 87-yard touchdown reception from Teddy Bridgewater in overtime gave the Minnesota Vikings a 30-24 victory over former teammate Percy Harvin and the New York Jets on Sunday.

After forcing the Jets to punt to start the extra period, the Vikings faced third-and-5. Bridgewater was blitzed and threw high on a bubble screen pass to his right. Wright jumped for the off-balance grab, slipped by Jaiquawn Jarrett and outran defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson the rest of the way.

Harvin had a 35-yard touchdown reception and a 47-yard kickoff return while finishing with 124 yards on six catches, but he hurt his ankle late in the fourth quarter and didn't return. This was his first game in Minnesota in more than two years after playing his first 3 1/2 seasons with the Vikings.
