Vikings Take Early 3-0 Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on December 13, 2010 – 6:52 pm

The Vikings received the opening kickoff and for the 1st time in his 20-year career, QB Brett Favre did not run on to the field to guide his team’s offense. Favre’s streak of 297 consecutive regular season games started came to end, giving way to backup QB Tarvaris Jackson.

The Vikings offense stalled in its 1st series and punted away to the NY Giants. Giants QB Eli Manning and Co. started their drive at their own 14, and after 3 plays, Manning threw his league-leading 18th INT of the season. Vikings CB Frank Walker picked off Manning at the NY 44 and returned it 10 yards down to the 34.

Jackson and Co. returned to the field and slowly moved their way down the field for a 10-play, 34-yard scoring drive that ended on a 31-yard FG by K Ryan Longwell. Jackson kept the drive alive on a 4th and 1 attempt where he pushed forward for the 1st down.

The Vikings lead 3-0 midway through the 1st quarter.

    All done Vikes go to 5-8. Giants get the ball after halftime, they’ll score and make it 21-3. We lose as always when we play in Primetime, and next week in primetime we’ll lose, AND the week after that against the Eagles we’ll lose in primetime! WE SUCK IN PRIMETIME!

    derek i completely agree with u-but it upsets me that r D always allows teams to get TD’s before the half.

    I can’t wait until the second half when the Vikes really need to throw the ball and all the TJ lovers get to see why Favre 63 injuries is still better than TJ. HAHA
