Big Plays Give Vikings 3-0 Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on November 21, 2010 – 12:29 pm

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.

    Ditto, the offensive line sucks. They can’t run block, they can’t pass protect, they’re WORTHLESS. Childress had a chance to address this during the offseason and he didn’t. He should be FIRED for MANY reasons.

    How about that great viking off/def. This game is over already at half. They suck. It’s time to move on because this season is over. Put Favre on bench 2nd half and give someone else a try. I don’t care if they put both 2nd team def/off on field 2nd half. THIS TEAM IS EMBARRASSING TO WATCH. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. GET RID OF ENTIRE COACHING STAFF AND SEND SOME OF THESE PLAYERS WITH THEM!!!!!!!

    This is hard to watch. Every week we have to watch favre turn the ball over multiple times. Sure, the offensive line sucks, but does he have to force the ball in the red zone on 1st and 2nd downs? Favre has thrown away at least 4 games this year with his picks and fumbles. He is obviously not the same QB as last year. He is not as mobile. It doesn’t matter if we pull this one out because Favre does not have what it takes anymore to play in the NFL. He has had an outstanding career and I appreciate the effort, but the effort is killing this team.

    Let the T-Jack play!

    This team has all the talent that any team would want. No leadership from the entire coaching staff to the majority of the players
