Action-Packed 1st Quarter Results In 14-7 Vikings Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on December 5, 2010 – 1:02 pm

The Bills deferred to the 2nd half and the Vikings received the opening kick. Rookie QB Joe Webb – who was activated to the 45-man roster for the 1st time this season – received the kickoff at the 5 and made a 30-yard return for his 1st appearance in a Vikings uniform.

After 2 handoffs to RB Adrian Peterson, QB Brett Favre scrambled to his right to escape a collapsing pocket. While attempting to pass, he was hit from behind forcing the ball to flutter in the air with Bills CB Drayton Florence coming down with the INT. Favre injured his shoulder on the play and his return is listed as questionable.

Tarvaris Jackson replaced Favre under center and on a 3rd and 4 attempt at the 4:43 mark in the 1st quarter, Jackson’s pass intended for Sidney Rice was picked off by Florence – his 2nd of the game – and returned 40 yards to give the Bills a 7-0 lead.

Jackson and Co. quickly responded, though, by putting together a 5-play, 70-yard scoring drive that ended with a 31-yard TD pass from Jackson to Rice. The play was initially ruled incomplete, but after interim coach Leslie Frazier’s 1st challenge as an NFL head coach, the play was overturned for the TD.

On the ensuing kickoff, Bills KR Leodis McKelvin fumbled the ball at the 19 with Vikings CB Frank Walker recovering the loose ball at the Bills 14. Five plays later, Peterson smashed his way through the Bills defensive line for the 2-yard TD.

The Vikings lead the Bills 14-7 early in the 2nd quarter.

    I just saw it in Favre’s eyes – he is starting to realize how much better off we are with TJack, but is terrified to admit it.

    Remember Bud Grant’s, “It’s not who you play, it’s when you play them.” It would be great if we beat the Buffalo Bills. They are though, a 2-9 team. Tarvaris Jackson can be a great QB in this league. We knew that before the game.

    It still comes down to who you play. And WHEN you play them.

    The window is closing. But I think the best thing that Brett can do to help is to step down as the starter, but stay on the sidelines for emotional support. I don’t think there is any classier of a way for him to retire now, with the way his last season has panned out.

    It will say a lot if we can beat the Bills by a big margin (14 points or more) as very few of their losses have been by more than a single score. It will help to energize the team for the rest of the season, and help to keep our hopes alive to the bitter end.

    Leslie Frazier has a difficult decision to make. Will he stay with TJack or go back to Favre? We don’t want a qb controversy. It may be unavoidable at the present time. Both QBs may be needed down the stretch.

    Rice and Henderson are wild men. Amazing comebacks by both men!!!

    You know if the o-line blocks and the d-line rushes, it don’t not matter who’s at the Q!!

    Smiff – Favre has had a lot more than one losy game. He hasn’t had a really good game yet this year! (Excluding the last 2 minutes of that arizona game anyways)
