Vikings' defense took care of business vs. Bucs

Vikings' defense took care of business vs. Bucs

Not once did he fumble or throw an interception, unlike Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston, who tossed three picks on Sunday.

Minneapolis, MN- Quarterback Case Keenum was ineffective last Sunday while taking the place of an injured Sam Bradford.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs catches a touchdown pass over Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III during the second quarter at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on September 24, 2017.

In Minnesota's 34-17 Week 3 win over the Buccaneers, Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs was an absolute stud.

Two plays later, David blitz and Keenum threw to the vacated spot to hit Cook, who got down to the one.

Tampa Bay is hoping it can be as effective stopping Keenum and the Vikes as Pittsburgh was last week in a 26-9 victory over Minnesota.

For Keenum, it's the third time he's beaten Tampa Bay in his career. He finished with seven catches for 67 yards on 12 targets.

The Minnesota Vikings came into the 2017 season believing they could have the league's best defense.

The Buccaneers got the ball to start the second half but a penalty on the kickoff return and a bobbled third-and-two snap contributed to a three-and-out and a punt from the 19 and another instant Vikings score.

They never slowed down, building a 28-3 lead by early in the third quarter on their way to compiling 494 yards. A sack of Winston and a holding call that erased a big third-down conversion put the Bucs in a bad spot but Winston converted a third-and-14 with an 18-yard pass to Brate.

Any defense, even the Buccaneers' own 2002 defense, would start giving up points and yards after being on the field for as long as the Minnesota group was against the Steelers. Harrison Smith and Andrew Sendejo both also picked off passes. After Ward broke up a third-down pass in the middle of the end zone, kicker Kai Forbath came in to bang a 20-yarder through the pipes.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock is active for the first time since the Vikings acquired him via trade from the Seahawks.

Tampa Bay's explosive group of weapons have little impact against the Vikings' defense on Sunday. Last week, the Vikings were only able to gain 237 yards on offense and had 131 penalty yards.
