Vikings Getting The Job Done – Lead 31-0 At Half

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 3, 2010 – 1:47 pm

Needing a win to keep their hopes for a 1st round bye alive, the Vikings did what they needed to do in the game’s first 2 quarters against the NY Giants at Mall of America Field.

Brett Favre and Co. took a 31-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. Favre was 19 of 23 for 271 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs to lead the Vikings offensive effort. TE Visanthe Shiancoe and WR Sidney Rice were his primary targets – Shiancoe had 7 grabs for 94 yards and 1 TD in the 1st half while Rice contributed 5 receptions, 83 yards and 2 TDs to the effort.

RB Adrian Peterson had 7 carries for 32 yards and 1 TD as well. Chester Taylor also contributed on the ground and with a couple of screen pass receptions.

The defense, meanwhile, completely shut down Eli Manning and the Giants offense. They scored 0 points, of course, and Manning threw for just 80 yards while also being intercepted once.

At some point early in the 2nd half, hopefully, the Vikings will pull their starters and this thing will turn into a preseason game.

If the Vikings hold on and win, all eyes will be on the Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys game in Dallas, which starts at 3:15. If the Eagles lose, the Vikings will get a 1st-round bye in the NFC playoffs, which begin next weekend. If the Eagles win, they’ll secure the bye and the Vikings will play at home next weekend.

Be sure to stay tuned to vikings.com today during and after the game. We’ll have comprehensive and exclusive coverage, including a live streak of all Vikings post-game press conferences. Then, we’ll be rushing out of here to find a TV to watch the Eagles-Cowboys game.
