Vikings cruise past Bills

Rookie Audie Cole made a name for himself Friday night.

The seventh-round draft pick from North Carolina State returned two interceptions for touchdowns -- on back-to-back defensive plays -- in the fourth quarter as the Vikings beat the Bills 36-14 in a preseason game at Mall of America Field.

Another rookie, kicker Blair Walsh, had field goals of 22, 46, 45, 40 and 30 yards for the Vikings, and Christian Ponder threw a one-yard scoring pass to Jerome Felton.
