Vikings Up Big On Seahawks At Halftime

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 22, 2009 – 1:37 pm

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.

    Favre must be getting paid by the number of touchdowns he throws. Give me a break. Those TD of 3, 8, and 5 yards should of been TD’s by Peterson.

    It’s all about the Vikings making their journey to the Super Bowl. STAY FOCUSED. When our team works for that Lombardi trophy together, they will achieve just that. GO VIKINGS!!!!!!

    why does ppl think ap should get all the td’s.I’m one of the biggest ap fans u can find but I know its a team efgfort and the less wear and tear ap gets the longer he will last and be productive.As was said he will get his but we have needed a team effort to win the big one.We are solid on both sides of the ball and I now feel we are the team in the nfc to beat not the saints.To the vikings players excellent game and keep it up till winfield gets back and we will win it all.

    The point is to score, not to have AP score. That was a good win, but was kind of boring to watch.

    Is Donald Haggerty SERIOUS? I have seen games where AP couldn’t get in on all 3 downs. And games where AP has had negative yardage on runs. WHO CARES HOW THE BALL CROSSES THE GOAL LINE, AS LONG AS IT CROSSES IT!

    And Brett is in his last year or two of his carreer, AP has many more to come. And remember that the receivers crossing the goal line get something out of this as well. Whether it’s their stats or making a case for them going to the Pro-bowl. If you ask AP, he doesn’t care how much yards he gets or how many touchdowns he gets, he just wants TO WIN!!!

    So Brett, KEEP FLINGING IT AND SCORING TOUCHDOWNS because that’s what Manning and Brees are doing by the number of touchdowns they have, and what is their record by the way?

    also remember thats how the game is played when u have a top qb and rb they can’t stack the box or favre beats them,they double cover and ap beats them.So when ap doesn’t get a lot of td’s and the recievers do it’s because they have to stack the box to keep ap in check.

    great game all around. start with o line protection for favre to opening holes for ap and chester not many penalties(send all to pro bowl), d line at one point they had -6 rushing yards and i know they didn’t finish with many(fracken awsome), db’s held their tight end carlson to 0 catches and limited housh and burleson and tackled their butts off(keep it up guys), special teams you guys cont. to win the field position battle, favre 4 tds in 3 quarters(21 on the season with only 3 ints) you are the man and i’ll say it again glad you’re on our side, receivers found it hillarious that everyone of you interviewed before the game had a touchdown(excitement, excitement, excitement).9-1 go VIKES bring on the boars

    i’m sorry i just went back and read an old post, how stupid of the nfl to have the pro bowl before the BIG ONE in that case o line you don’t get to go cause you’ll be preparing for the colts(just a prediction)

    I didn’t even realize that about the 4 receivers and the interview they had and then all four of them getting a TD. Pretty awesome!

    I agree with you moorevikes. Horrible move to put the ProBowl just BEFORE the Superbowl. Too many of the probowl players are going to be on a SuperBowl team and they don’t need this pointless game to worry about before the big dance. If you really want to get more interest in the pro-bowl, hold it at the beginning of the following season. Use it as a way to bring in excitement for the season to come and get it started one week earlier for all of us anxious fans who have been waiting, counting the days till we get to scream for our favorite players/teams again.
