MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The last part of Justin Jefferson’s first NFL touchdown was so easy he took the opportunity to slow down and tap dance across the goal line.

That gave Minnesota a 12-point lead midway through the third quarter over Tennessee.

If only Jefferson and the Vikings found the end of the game so trouble-free.

Stephen Gostkowski made his career-high sixth field goal of the game with 1:44 left, and the undefeated Titans beat the winless Vikings 31-30.

Jefferson had seven receptions for 175 yards, the third-highest total by a rookie in team history.
