JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Just about everything that could have gone wrong for Minnesota did.The Vikings lost the turnover battle, failed to score twice inside the 1-yard line and allowed a fourth-down conversion on a fake punt. Those kinds of mistakes normally would doom a team. Not against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars.Matt Asiata scored on a short touchdown run , Kai Forbath kicked four field goals and the Vikings beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 on Sunday, winning for just the second time in nine weeks.This was huge to win today, tight end Kyle Rudolph said. The situation we put ourselves in, we feel we have to win out. You cant win out until you win the first one.Asiata had a chance to score three times, but he was stopped on a fourth-and-goal run in the second quarter and fumbled at the goal line in the fourth. Those turned out to be mere speedbumps against Jacksonville (2-11), which dropped its record-tying eighth consecutive game and fell to 0-6 at EverBank Field this season.Minnesota (7-6) hadnt won on the road since Sept. 25 at Carolina and needed a victory to keep pace in the NFC playoff picture.We know what lies ahead for us and we felt we needed to win this one to get us going, running back Jerick McKinnon said.Sam Bradford completed 24 of 34 passes for 292 yards and a touchdown. He wasnt sacked and scrambled four times for 17 yards. His 3-yard TD toss to Rudolph with 2:13 remaining sealed the victory.It was big for us just to get back on a winning track in general, Rudolph said. We know were going to have to win our last four games, so we needed this one to get us started.The Vikings finish the season against Indianapolis, Green Bay and Chicago.The Jaguars, meanwhile, will try to avoid setting a franchise record by losing their ninth in a row next week at Houston.Its tough anytime you lose, quarterback Blake Bortles said. I know for me personally, I cant wait to play on Sunday the following week and get another opportunity and hopefully to try to erase some of this stuff thats going on and maybe wake up from this nightmare.With these last three weeks left and then having to live six months until you get another opportunity, I think is more fearful than counting down the days until its over. I dont want to have to go through those six months.DEEP SHOTSKnown more for short passes than deep shots, the Vikings changed things up against the Jaguars. Bradford connected with Rudolph for 44 yards on the first play from scrimmage and then found Adam Thielen for a 41-yard gain on Minnesotas second possession. Both set up field goals. He also found Stefon Diggs for a diving, 45-yarder down the middle in the first half.Before Sunday, the Jaguars had allowed just two pass plays longer than 40 yards all season. They gave up three in the first half against Minnesota.We created some explosive plays, and anytime you do that, it just makes it easier for the offense, Bradford said.ZIMMER RETURNSVikings coach Mike Zimmer returned after a one-game absence and was on the sideline. Zimmer missed last weeks game against Dallas because of a detached retina and was unsure earlier in the week whether he would be on the field or in an upstairs box.Zimmer, who needed a doctors clearance to fly to Jacksonville , was wearing a patch over his right eye. He also had protective glasses on beforehand, but ditched those when the game started.Zimmer said he had few limitations.I couldnt see to my right, but other than that, not really, he said.INJURIESThe Vikings lost receiver Laquon Treadwell (ankle), cornerback Trae Waynes (concussion protocol) and guard Brandon Fusco (concussion protocol). Jaguars left tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee) and receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) left the game but later returned.JIMMY SMITH HONOREDRetired Jaguars receiver Jimmy Smith was inducted into the franchises ring of honor at halftime. Smith cried as his name and jersey number (82) were unveiled inside the stadium.Smith joined offensive tackle Tony Boselli (2006), former owners Wayne and Delores Weaver (2012), running back Fred Taylor (2012) and quarterback Mark Brunell (2013) in the Pride of the Jaguars.Smith, whose life has been defined as much by drug addiction as football production, said his message these days is to be an All-Pro at getting back up because youre going to get knocked down.UP NEXTMinnesota stays in the AFC South and hosts Indianapolis.Jacksonville travels to Houston, which has won five in a row in the series.---For more NFL coverage: and Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys .

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose tried watching the video tribute to him and Joakim Noah during a first-quarter timeout in their return to Chicago on Friday night.Noah, though, would have none of it.I watched some of it, but Jo was telling me to stay focused, Rose said. I had to listen to my big brother at that time.Stay focused they did.Perhaps inspired by the emotional homecoming, the New York Knicks shrugged off their early season struggles for a 117-104 victory over the Bulls.Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points and Carmelo Anthony added 25 to help New York (2-3) snap a two-game losing streak. The night, though, belonged to the former Bulls.Rose, Chicagos first-round draft pick in 2008, finished with 15 points and 11 assists (five in the fourth quarter), while Noah, a 2007 first-rounder, had 16 points and nine rebounds. They teamed up to play a familiar two-man game late as New York held off a Chicago rally.Noah hadnt scored more than six points in a game this season and was held scoreless in two of the previous four games.Were still trying to find ourselves as a team, Noah said, but Im not going to lie: this win felt really good.Dwyane Wade led Chicago (3-2) with 35 points on 12-for-20 shooting and Jimmy Butler added 26 points.We didnt come out with the right mentality, Wade said.When asked if the game meant more to Rose and Noah, Wade said: Anybody could sense that.Both Rose and Noah received loud ovations from the United Center crowd during pregame introductions, although there were some boos mixed in for Rose. The Chicago native also was booed every time he touched the ball in the first couple of minutes.I love when the crowd is into it, Rose said. I knew there was going to be some yells, I knew there were going to be some boos. Im from here, Im used to it. Ive been getting it since I was in sixth grade going to play on the West Side and me being from the South Side.New York broke open a close game by scoring 10 straight points to begin the fourth quarter for a 94-81 lead with 9 miinutes to play.ddddddddddddThe Knicks led by as much as 98-83 before the Bulls rallied within 108-102 with just under 2 minutes to go. But Rose ended any hopes of a comeback with a three-point play on the next possession.TIP-INSKnicks: F Lance Thomas was inactive because of a sprained left ankle. He is listed as day-to-day. ... Noah played just 29 games last season before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. Right now, Im just happy to be on the court, he said.Bulls: Doug McDermott, who missed Wednesdays game at Boston with a concussion, was cleared by the NBAs concussion protocol earlier Friday. ... Wade had five 3-pointers to give him 10 in five games this season. He had a total of seven last season.REGRETSOn the day the Cubs celebrated their World Series title, Rose said the biggest disappointment during his time in Chicago was not leading the Bulls to a championship.Only thing I can do about that is say I gave it my all, he said. I really tried. I had multiple times, many times, where I envisioned winning a championship here. It never happened, so Ive got to take (those) visions and take them to New York.MOVING ONNoah said he wasnt surprised management broke up the Bulls core following last season.I think it was time for a change, he said. I look back on (last season) and I was definitely frustrated. There was definitely a lot of adversity going on there. Now I can look back at it and see where went wrong. Its not about blaming one person. Everybody in that locker room is good people. Its just (stuff) happens.We didnt make the playoffs. Everybody was disappointed. It was a team that had high expectations.UP NEXTKnicks: Host Utah on Sunday.
