It was tenuous after the Vikings 1st drive when a penalty derailed them, but since then the Vikings have taken firm control of the game and lead 21-0 at halftime.
The Vikings 3 TDs have all come on passes. Favre has hit Bernard Berrian, Percy Harvin and Visanthe Shiancoe for scores and the veteran QB is an impressive 14 of 16 for 128 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. RB Adrian Peterson has 63 yards on 13 carries and Chester Taylor has chipped in with 5 carries for 30 yards and 2 receptions for 12 yards.
As impressive as those stats are for the Vikings offense, the defense has been just as impressive. Seattle has just 61 total yards and only 2 first downs on the game. QB Matt Hasselbeck has been responsible and accurate, but just hasn’t been able to get anything going. RB Justin Forsett has been bottled up all day and has only 3 yards rushing.
After the Vikings scored their 2nd TD of the game midway through the 2nd quarter, Seattle kick returner Ben Obomanu was stripped by Vikings S Jamarca Sanford and then LB Heath Farwell recovered the fumble. A few plays later after an Adrian Peterson run got the Vikings to the 5-yardline, Favre hit Berrian for a TD to take the 21-0 lead.
