Since the National Football League went to a 16-game schedule in 1978, the only other instances of a 17-point underdog emerging as an outright victor occurred that year, when the then-Baltimore Colts upset the New England Patriots, and in 1992, with the New York Jets performing the trick against the Bills.
As for the Vikings, they are 1-0-1 to start the 2018 season, following a tie against the Packers last week. "So it's embarrassing on our part, the performance that we put forth today, and it's a shame it was here at home in front of our fans".
"They're a good defense", Reiff said, "and it wasn't fun".
ALLEN AIRBORNE: Allen joined Trent Edwards (Nov. 23, 2008 against Kansas City) as the only Bills quarterbacks to rush for two touchdowns in one game since the 1970 merger.
In the battle of teams who started the day without a win, the New York Giants came out on top against the Houston Texans, Eli Manning completing 25 of his 29 pass attempts for 297 yards and two touchdowns.
Since Cousins became a full-time starter for Washington to begin the 2015 season, he has fumbled 33 times.
Buffalo's defense got going early against Minnesota, looking hungry and scary. That included a 26-yard touchdown pass to wide-open tight end Jason Croom.

Jimmy Butler deal to Cavs unlikely due to lack of assets
Butler skipped media day Monday, and is expected to miss training camp as he waits for the Timberwolves to find a deal. Thibodeau did concede that there's never an ideal time to have to trade a player of Butler's magnitude.
"Obviously you can't turn the ball over and give their offense a short field", Cousins said. Bailey never left the sideline Sunday other than to boot the opening kickoff and another one following the Vikings' meaningless TD late in the fourth quarter. If the team wants to take itself seriously as a Super Bowl contender, these games can't happen. "I'm excited to keep moving forward with them".
The defense didn't do much of that in the first half. But it is the Bills who held a 17-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. In the Bills' first two losses, Buffalo gave up 138 yards and two rushing touchdowns to backup running backs.
The Vikings nearly made history with their futility running the ball. If the same kind of stage is set next week, there's no reason the Bills can't be 2-2 by the time Sunday night rolls around. From an bad offensive line to completely lackluster weapons to a defense that has been exceptionally porous to this point, Buffalo truly looks like a team that might not make it into the win column this season.
Asked Sunday if the 17-point spread affected his team, Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White replied, "Not at all", adding, "I think ever since I've been here, every game I've been in, we've been the underdogs".
After being outscored 75-9 over their first six quarters of the season, the Bills have enjoyed a 41-9 advantage over the last six periods.
In addition to Cook, the Vikings played without defensive end Everson Griffen (knee), punt returner Marcus Sherels (rib) and tight end David Morgan (knee).
