Vikings at Patriots, Second Half Thread

Yes, the Vikings and the Patriots are tied at seven at halftime, but it's hard to think that the Vikings shouldn't have a lead right now.

In a move that will be second-guessed whether the Vikings end up winning this game or not, the Vikings faced fourth-and-goal at the Patriots' 1-yard line with a minute left in the first half. Rather than taking the gimme field goal, Brad Childress decided to go for the touchdown. . .and he might have been successful if Phil Loadholt hadn't gotten utterly blown up by the Patriots defense, allowing them to stifle Peterson in the backfield.

The Vikings have also survived Percy Harvin's most recent near-catastrophic injury, as he twisted an ankle early in the first quarter, but has returned and been successful after that point.

The Vikings and Patriots are tied at 7 at halftime. . .keep it here for the second half, folks!
