The Vikings turned a flat and unproductive 1st-half effort into a nail-biting finish but ultimately were unable to overcome mistakes and a tough Miami Dolphins team, falling to the visitors 14-10 on Sunday at Mall of America Field.
Trailing 7-0 at halftime, the Vikings deficit grew to 14-0 in the 3rd quarter when QB Brett Favre was sacked and fumbled in the endzone, allowing LB Koa Misi to fall on it for a TD. The Vikings responded later in the 3rd quarter with a 1-yard Adrian Peterson run to cut the lead to 14-7 and then a Ryan Longwell FG in the 4th quarter made the score 14-10.
The Vikings defense rose up several times in the 2nd half, and in the 4th quarter the offense was set up on 2 occasions to notch the winning score. But things wouldn’t fall the Vikings way and the Dolphins sealed their win by turning over the Vikings on downs with under a minute to go in the game.
