Touchdown time-lapse: Vikings-Ravens part of wild, snowy day in NFL


The final 2:05 of the Vikings-Ravens game was easily the wildest game in the NFL on Sunday, but it was just one of three games that featured improbable plays and outcomes.

The beauty of it all is that while the Vikings and Ravens were going back-and-forth, so were the Browns and Patriots and Steelers and Dolphins.

Check out the timeline of how the touchdowns were scored.

  • 2:28 p.m. – Vikings take a 12-7 lead on the Ravens on a 8-yard touchdown pass to Jerome Simpson.
  • 2:58 p.m. – Ravens take a 14-12 lead on a 1-yard touchdown pass to Dennis Pitta.
  • 3:03 p.m. – Dolphins take a 31-24 lead on the Steelers on a touchdown pass to Charles Clay.
  • 3:04 p.m. – Toby Gerhart gives the Vikings a 19-15 lead with a 41-yard touchdown run.
  • 3:07 p.m. – Ravens go up on the Vikings 22-19 after a 77-yard kick return touchdown by Jacoby Jones. 
  • 3:14 p.m. – Cordarrelle Patterson takes a bubble screen 79 yards to put the Vikings up 26-22. 
  • 3:23 p.m. – Steel City Miracle nearly unfolds in Pittsburgh as Steelers lateral the ball almost all the way to the end zone as time expired. 
  • 3:26 p.m. – Patriots cut the deficit against Cleveland to five points on a Tom Brady touchdown pass. 
  • 3:30 p.m. – Patriots recover an onside kick with one-minute left in the game. 
  • 3:36 p.m. – Tom Brady hits Julian Edelman for a one-yard, game-winning touchdown with 30 seconds left in the game. 
  • 3:42 p.m. – Billy Cundiff misses a 58-yard game-winning field goal attempt as time expires and the Browns lose. 

The time-lapse doesn't even include the 34 points the Eagles and Lions combined to score in another crazy fourth quarter.'s Gregg Rosenthal wonders if it was the greatest Sunday in NFL history.
