Vikings rookie QB Joe Webb has given more evidence to his superior athletic abilities by weaving through the Eagles defense for a 9-yard “shake and bake” TD.
On the TD scramble, Webb rolled out to his right, couldn’t find an open receiver and made a quick sprint towards the front-right pylon. Just before reaching the goal line, Webb received a clear-out block from TE Jimmy Kleinsasser, opening the sidelines for the easy score.
Webb was perfect on the 7-play, 75-yard scoring drive, completing 3 of 3 passes for 20 yards with the 9-yard scrambling TD. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson jump-started the drive on consecutive runs of 18, 8 and 3 yards followed by an 11-yard reception on a screen pass from Webb.
Vikings WR Sidney Rice hauled in a 14-yard reception on the 5th play of the drive and was immediately hit by Eagles CB Asante Samuel. The hit was helmet-to-helmet contact, resulting in a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.
