Gerhart Scores First Career TD, Gives Vikings 14-7 Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on November 28, 2010 – 1:48 pm

With Adrian Peterson sidelined with an apparent ankle injury, backup RB Toby Gerhart scored his first career TD on a 5-yard plunge up the middle of the Redskins defense to give the Vikings a 14-7 lead.

Just as the Vikings started the 1st half, they opened the 2nd half with another 5-yard TD run. The drive consisted of 9 plays for 71 yards and consumed 5:12 to open the 2nd half.

The Vikings faced only two 3rd down attempts during the series with Brett Favre converting the first 3rd down attempt on a play-action pass to TE Visanthe Shiancoe for 29 yards. The 29-yard strike set up Gerhart’s TD run 3 plays later, which was the second 3rd down attempt of the drive.

The Vikings will start their 2nd offensive drive of the half at their own 34-yard line following Washington’s 4th punt of the game.

    Who needs Vick when Favre can run like that! We should have gotten a delay of game penalty. Not because of the playclock, but because of Favre’s speed!

    Conner, LOL, He did run though. Thats great! See it takes a team to win or lose. Just needed a new coach! To bad the Vikings did not do this sooner! What would the record be if they would have done this move sooner!

    Toby, you were great today! The NFL is fun when you are winning! Keep up the good work! Celebrate, you all deserve it! Adrian, I hope your ankle is ok. It was fun watching Brett run and Adrian on the sideline laughing and enjoying it!

    We all knew Toby could do it – he excelled in high school and college and there was never any doubt.
