MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Ryan Longwell booted a 38-yard field goal with 4:05 left in the game Sunday and the Minnesota Vikings hung on for a 24-21 victory over Dallas.

Longwell's go-ahead kick was set up when Erin Henderson picked off a Tony Romo pass at the Dallas 22-yard line with 7:33 to go.

Brett Favre passed for 118 yards and a touchdown, connecting on 14-of-19 attempts. Adrian Peterson added 73 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries for Minnesota (2-3).

Randy Moss caught five passes for 55 yards and Percy Harvin ran back the second-half kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown.

Romo was successful on 25 of his 33 pass attempts, gaining 216 yards and hurling three touchdowns. But he also yielded a pair of costly interceptions that set up a total of 10 Vikings points.

Roy Williams hauled in two touchdown catches and Dez Bryant also scored for the Cowboys (1-4), who were whistled for 10 penalties totaling 91 yards.
