Oakland Raiders At Minnesota Vikings - Second Quarter Open Thread

After what can charitably be described as an "interesting" first quarter, filled with penalties and other assorted fun, the biggest thing to remember is that the referees in the National Football League are, indeed, professionals.

Yep, when you're not quite sure what down it is, you might be an NFL official.

Anyway, Adrian Peterson found his way into the end zone for another touchdown, his 11th of the season, to give the Vikings an early 7-0 lead. The Raiders got a big kickoff return and put together a decent drive, but the Vikings forced them to settle for a 29-yard Sebastian Janikowski field goal to make it a 7-3 game as we move on to the second quarter of play.

Seriously, I'm not sure if I've seen a game as poorly officiated this season as this one. . .and since every Vikings' game is poorly officiated, that covers some ground. But even the personal foul penalties that have been called on the Raiders thus far have been questionable at best.

Adrian Peterson appears to have injured his ankle on the final play of the quarter, and he needed help getting off of the field, so we'll have to keep you updated on that one as well.

But, as we move on to the second quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings have a 7-3 lead over the Oakland Raiders at the Metrodome. Join us for more fun and festivities, won't you?
