Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has seemingly taken the pressure off of QB Brett Favre and his injured ankle by rushing the football 8 times for 39 yards on the Vikings 12-play, 76-yard scoring drive to take a 7-0 lead against the New England Patriots.
The Vikings are showing their ability to methodically move the ball down the field against the Patriots defense. Peterson has 60 yards on 14 carries while Favre has completed 4 of 4 passes for 40 yards after 2 offensive series.
Vikings WR Percy Harvin injured his left ankle on a 21-yard reception during the scoring drive and his return is listed as questionable.
The Patriots are currently driving the football into Vikings territory early in the 2nd quarter.
