The 5-foot-5 Holliday also returned a kickoff 87 yards in the preseason opener at Carolina and a punt 90 yards for a score against San Francisco before fumbling twice against New Orleans last week. Teams trim their rosters to 53 players on Friday, and Holliday still wasn't sure if he convinced coach Gary Kubiak to keep him.
"You're asking me to say that now? Nobody has made it," Kubiak said. "We're not finished yet. He's made a heck of a case for himself."
A fan was taken to a Houston hospital after falling from an escalator at Reliant Stadium.
A statement issued by officials of Reliant Park, where the stadium is situated, said nothing about the fan's condition. Houston police spokesman Kese Smith said the incident happened at the north end of the stadium.
Minnesota punted after its first possession of the second half. Holliday made a quick move, broke a tackle and easily outran the Vikings' pack of defenders, slowing down in his final strides. Kubiak said he needed to see something spectacular in training camp from Holliday and he has gotten it.
Bethel-Thompson, an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State in 2011, went 15-of-29 passing for 193 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the Vikings in his first action since the preseason opener. Keenum, an undrafted rookie who set NCAA passing records at the University of Houston, went 5-of-10 passing for 43 yards.
Peterson is recovering from major left knee surgery. Frazier said of Peterson's likely availability for the opener against Jacksonville:
"I think he'll probably be a 'game-time' decision. We've got a lot of things we want to get done with him this week, and I doubt that we would know without getting him through an entire week, if we thought he was ready to play a game."
Houston starter John Beck found Lestar Jean for a 27-yard gain when the Texans regained possession. He threw behind Jean in the end zone from the Minnesota 5, and the Vikings stopped Forsett at the goal line on fourth down. Tackle Rashad Butler, who lost the starting job to Derek Newton, tore his right triceps during that series. Kubiak said Butler is out for the season.
Sage Rosenfels, a Texan from 2006 to '08, relieved Webb with about 10 minutes left in the half. The 34-year-old Rosenfels, trying to lock down the No. 3 quarterback spot ahead of Bethel-Thompson, overthrew a wide-open Aromashodu along the sideline.
Rosenfels faced heavy pressure in the second period, and was sacked twice. He took another hit as he found Aromashodu across the middle late in the half, and Aromashodu bounced off Troy Nolan and ran for a 58-yard touchdown.
Bethel-Thompson made a case for himself after Holliday's big return, floating a perfect pass to Wright for a 59-yard touchdown. He started 3-of-4 passing, and the incompletion bounced off Stephen Burton's fingertips.
Notes: Frazier said Wright sprained his left ankle. ... The Vikings were minus-three in turnovers through the first three preseason games, and Reggie Jones' fumbled punt set up Forsett's second touchdown run.
