The Week 10 showdown between the Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills will be looked back on as an instant classic. Sunday's matchup featured plenty of big plays and needed overtime to be decided, with the Vikings ultimately pulling out the win.

This thrilling affair also had its fair share of drama, as there were a few controversial moments. Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell took a shot at Buffalo for one penalty the Bills got away with in Week 10.

O'Connell joined Vikings reporter Pete Bercich for his weekly film review of the previous game on Tuesday. When discussing his team's drive to begin OT, O'Connell said, "Obviously we did not get to the point where we could just flat-out win the game in overtime. That tends to happen when the defense is allowed to play with 12 men."

Minnesota's head coach is clearly showing shade at Buffalo and the refs. The Bills were caught with 12 players on the field to defend the Vikings' first-and-goal attempt from the 2-yard line, but no flags were thrown.

Buffalo forced negative yardage on that play, and Minnesota ultimately had to settle for a field goal to end the drive, giving the Bills the ball back. Thankfully Patrick Peterson sealed the game with an interception on Josh Allen, otherwise this missed penalty could've been much larger in the grand scheme of things.
