Vikings Trail 9-0 At Half

Posted by cjsiewert on October 11, 2010 – 8:56 pm

NY Jets K Nick Folk has provided all of the scoring for his team with 3 FGs in the 1st half, giving the Jets a 9-0 lead after 30 minutes of football in East Rutherford, NJ.

The Vikings are having a tough time getting any production out of their offense against a Jets defense that has allowed only 3 Minnesota 1st downs. The Vikings are 0-5 on 3rd down and have tallied a dismal 51 yards of total offense on 21 plays compared to 206 yards on 45 plays for the Jets offense.

Vikings QB Brett Favre is 3-of-7 for 31 yards while RB Adrian Peterson has carried the football 8 times for 34 yards and a long of 15. The highly anticipated union of Favre and WR Randy Moss has connected on only 1 pass for 19 yards (targeted 3 times).

The Vikings defense has been the bright spot for the Purple throughout the 1st half, holding the Jets offense to 0 TDs despite reaching Minnesota territory 5 times  – 2 inside the 10-yard line. The 2 near-goal-line stops for the Vikings held the Jets to a pair of FGs, limiting the NY offense to 9 points.

The Jets will receive the football at the start of the 2nd half.

    I don’t get it we have a ton of money in trhe offense but the defence is where the plays come from… we have a QB who fumbles the ball andthen checks the charts on what the defenceis doing??? YOU DROPPED THE BALL DIPPY!! CONCENTRATE ON THAT FIRST!! i THANIK A NEW OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR OR HEAD COACH IS IN ORDER!!!!

    lLong time Viking fan since 1967, up to this point I have been only reading the blogs but I can’t take it any longer. I’m watching this game and I wondering what have the vikings been doing for the past 2 weeks in preparation for this game. The offense is animic which is a reflection of its head coach. Childress should be fired and replace immediately by Frazer if there going to be any hope of savaging whats left of the season. Oh! one more thing he need to take
    Favre with him.

    AMEN PREACHER!! Good to hear from somneone who was around during the Tarkenton/ Grant erra like me!! CHildish needs to go been sayinn that for a few years now. Favre gives this song and dance about he wants to perform biut doesn’t show for pre season!! performance starts with commitment!

    preacher-
    my point exactly a few weeks ago I dared to go agianst the puple koolaid drinkers in stating that going into the bye …….all players who have brought their games to this point should be given time off, but those who have looked rusty needed to worlk their butts off to get in synch……of course I included Favre, cuz he has been rusty due to no traning camp reps.
    I was called names and criticized…….

    I feel you rocksalt! I too have been cautiously optimistic even in ’98 Favre was wondering about his performance this year and says he wanted to do as well or better than last year yet, to me that starts with training camp… I keep hearing about how the offense isn’;t in sink,seems like that would be ironed out during camp…

    NEVER should have ti=aken Moss either, just good money chasin bad!! He is a problem child wait and see! Further if Childish could see past his ego and actually correct his mistakes that would go far but I am afraid we are looking at a long season!
