Who won Dolphins vs Vikings last night? Scores and results from Week 6 game 

Minnesota Vikings v Miami Dolphins
Minnesota Vikings v Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins and the Minnesota Vikings faced off in Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season that ended with a 24-16 victory in favour of the Vikings.

With the Green Bay Packers falling to the New York Jets, seeing their own record improve to 5-1 gave Minnesota control of the NFC North.

For Miami, who started the season with three straight wins, the wheels seem to be falling off in a season that started with so much promise.

This game was a story of two quarters.

The first quarter remained scoreless with Miami unable to convert their superiority to points, whereas Minnesota struggled to get any sort of game going. Their inability to push home their advantage in the first quarter came back to haunt the Dolphins as the Vikings took a 10-3 lead in the second quarter.

The third quarter was as scoreless, much like the first before, the final quarter provided four touchdowns shaded 14-13 by the Vikings due to a missed 2-point conversion by the Dolphins.

Highlights: Dolphins v Vikings, Week 6, NFL Season 2022

Quarter 1

The first quarter saw Skylar Thompson begin the game for Miami.

After picking up a couple of impressive first downs, he was sacked at the 44-yard line in a third-and-nine situation. Minnesota could not make much of the situation as Kirk Cousins barely avoided a safety by throwing an incompletion on third down.

Miami picked up where they left off with a long throw by Thompson to Waddle gaining wards before Raheem Mostert picked up another first down.

But again they could not make the advantage count.

Quarter 2

The second quarter began the same way, but after the first failed drive, Teddy Bridgewater replaced the rookie as he suffered a thumb injury. It led to a drive that resulted in a field goal.

Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota offense, however, discovered their mojo and went on a long drive that led to a touchdown pass to tight end Irv Smith Jr.

A missed field goal by the Dolphins meant they could not reduce the arrears. Instead, the Vikings scored a field goal of their own with time expiring to go 10-3 into the break.

Quarter 3

The third quarter saw more play broken up by the defense with incomplete passes by both Kirk Cousins and Teddy Bridgewater. Both were also sacked this quarter as the offenses struggled to get anything going.

A long pass to Justin Jefferson at the end of the quarter gave Minnesota excellent field position to open the scoring first in the next quarter.

Quarter 4

Minnesota began the quarter with a touchdown straight away to Adam Thielen.

That spurred Miami into action with a long run by Tyreek Hill after a catch getting them down the field. That drive ended with a touchdown by Mike Gesicki.

After snuffing out the next Minnesota drive, Miami looked to take their first lead in the game and gradually progressed downfield.

However, after taking a catch from a third-and-long situation and crossing for the first down, Jaylen Waddle fumbled the football and the Vikings recovered, turning the game on its head.

From that drive, Dalvin Cook rushed for a 53-yard touchdown followed by a 2-point conversion that opened up a 14-point lead for Minnesota.

The Dolphins tried to respond but another interception stalled their next drive. Once they recovered the ball, however, they scored with a touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki for his second touchdown.
