It’s halftime here at Mall of America Field and the game is tied at 10. The Vikings have dominated the half, but penalties and turnovers on the Vikings offense have kept the game close.
Seattle scored on an 86-yard INT return by rookie Earl Thomas. On the play, Favre hit WR Bernard Berrian on the numbers but Berrian tipped the ball up in the air, allowing Thomas to collect the ball and rush to the endzone for the score. Outside of that, there’s been production for Seattle because the Vikings defense has stopped the ground game.
The Vikings offense, though, has looked good. It’s just that a few penalties and 2 turnovers have taken away potential scoring chances.
Favre is 14 of 21 passing for 174 yards and looks sharp. He’s moving nimbly to avoid the rush and he’s scattered his completions to 9 different players. Adrian Peterson leads the team with 36 receiving yards and Shiancoe leads the squad with 3 receptions. Peterson also carried the ball 11 times in the first 2 quarters for a total of 37 yards; he scored on a nice 24-yard TD dash where he hurdled over players and also danced around them.
