The Minnesota Vikings have built their first winning streak of the season after beating the New Orleans Saints, 28-25, in London. The Vikings had a double-doink go their way as Wil Lutz grazed the left upright and crossbar on his 61-yard field goal attempt to send the game to overtime.

The Vikings head into Week 5 with a 3-1 record, and their next game comes against another divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. The two teams last met in Week 18 of the 2021 season, and the Vikings won that game, 31-17. The Vikings lead the all-time series with a record of 63-57-2.
