The Vikings are still unbeaten in the preseason getting their fourth win in a row, 28-14 over the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night in Dallas.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had another strong performance, the Star Tribune notes, going 7-for-7 in his one quarter of play.

One highlight was a beautiful 39-yard pass he threw under pressure to wide receiver Mike Wallace, who caught the ball on the right sideline.

The play of the game, though, was an electrifying kickoff return by Cordarrelle Patterson. After Dallas scored a touchdown, Patterson returned the ensuing kickoff 107 yards for a Minnesota TD.

After Bridgewater left the game, backups Shaun Hill and Taylor Heinicke took over.

Hill was intercepted once in the second quarter, and went 6-of-8 for 50 yards.

Heinicke was 11-for-11 for 83 yards. He led the Vikings on two drives that ended in rushing touchdowns - one by Dominique Williams in the third quarter and one by Joe Banyard in the fourth, according to

The Vikings play their fifth and last preseason game on Sept. 3 against the Titans in Tennessee.

They open regular season play on Sept. 14 at San Francisco against the 49ers.
