Another week, another game-clinching touchdown drive for quarterback Kyle Sloter. With the Vikings nursing a three-point lead with 8:51 to play, Sloter led the offense onto the field and used three completions to drive the offense 55 yards in four plays to score a touchdown. A perfectly-placed pass from Sloter to Brandon Zylstra provided the score and was the peak moment of an 11 of 15 performance that generated 130 yards to go along with the touchdown toss. In three games this preseason, Sloter led scoring drives in the 4th quarter to help the Vikings secure victories. In Denver against his old team, Sloter guided two scoring drives to help the Vikings overcome a deficit in the final quarter and win 42-28. Two weeks later at home against Seattle, Sloter threw touchdowns to Chad Beebe and Jake Wieneke to help the Vikings win 21-20. In total this preseason, Sloter finished going 41 of 56 (73.2%) for 366 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 114.1. He also added 33 yards and a touchdown on six rushing attempts.
