The Vikings and Patriots have entered the locker room for halftime tied at 7. Vikings QB Brett Favre has shown little, if any, adverse affects from his injured left ankle, completing 11 of 13 passes for 121 yards.
Adrian Peterson has taken a significant load of off Favre’s shoulders by recording 18 carries for 68 yards and a TD – the Vikings have tallied 33 total plays.
The Vikings took a timeout with 1:07 remaining in the half with a 4th and goal from the New England 1-yard line. Head Coach Brad Childress opted to go for the TD attempt and the play fell short with Peterson tackled in the backfield.
In his first return to New England after being traded away to the Vikings prior to Week 5, WR Randy Moss has 0 receptions and has been targeted only once. Percy Harvin leads all receivers with 4 receptions for 64 yards.
Minnesota will open the 2nd half receiving the kickoff.
