Jaguars beat Vikings 14-10 in defense-dominated exhibition

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota and Jacksonville had the top two defenses in the NFL last season, a major reason why the Vikings and Jaguars reached their respective conference championship games.

Two joint practices and one exhibition game produced yet more evidence of the exceptional skill and sound scheme each team has on that side of the ball.

Yannick Ngakoue had an 11-yard sack that helped Jacksonville hold Kirk Cousins and Minnesota's starting offense to three completions and three points, before the Jaguars reserves rallied for a 14-10 victory over the Vikings on Saturday.
