Late FG Lifts Chargers Past Vikings 12-10
Nick Novak nailed a 45-yard field goal as time expired and the San Diego Chargers edged the Minnesota Vikings, 12-10, in NFL preseason action Friday night.
Sage Rosenfels found Matt Asiata in the end zone with just 1:54 remaining to put the Vikings ahead 10-9, but the Chargers marched down the field in the final minute to steal the win.
Charlie Whitehurst went just 8-for-18 through the air for 82 yards and Michael Spurlock caught three passes for 46 yards for the Chargers, who missed the playoffs each of the past two seasons.
Rosenfels went 6-for-6 for 51 yards through the air, Christian Ponder was 9- for-16 for 115 yards with an interception, and Percy Harvin hauled in two balls for 53 yards for the Vikings, who fell to 1-2 in the preseason.
San Diego Quarterback Phillip Rivers and tight end Antonio Gates sat out Friday and Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson was also inactive.
