On the Vikings 2nd offensive series, QB Brett Favre made a pair of big 1st down completions and RB Adrian Peterson scampered through the Green bay defense, setting up a 24-yard FG by K Ryan Longwell.
The 10-play, 77-yard scoring drive was kick-started on the 2nd play from scrimmage as Peterson rushed up the middle and then found an open lane down the Packers sideline for a 25-yard gain.
The Vikings faced a 3rd and 12 at their own 41 and as Favre was pressured, he dumped off a quick release to RB Toby Gerhart and the Vikings No. 2 RB shook off a Green Bay defender for a 19-yard gain and the 1st down. On the ensuing play, Favre found WR Greg Lewis streaking down the Vikings sideline for a 29-yard gain down the Packers 11.
The drive stalled in the Packers red zone and the Vikings settled for the 3-point lead.
