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.
