San Francisco 49ers At Minnesota Vikings - Second Quarter Open Thread


The Vikings couldn't have gotten off to a much better start than they did on their opening drive. They put together a huge 16-play, 81-yard drive that prominently featured Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph. Christian Ponder completed six of his eight pass attempts on the drive, including four to Rudolph. None of them were bigger than the pass you see above, when on fourth-and-goal from the 1, Ponder dropped back, stayed cool with a safety in his face, and hit Rudolph in the back of the end zone for the score. The drive took 7:40 off of the clock.

Say what you will about the Vikings in this game, but they've sent a message that they certainly aren't scared of the Niners in the early going, that's for sure.

The Niners punted away on their first possession, which featured a drop on a catchable pass by Randy Moss, and the Vikings took over again. They were forced to punt as well, and the Niners are currently on their second possession of the game as we move into the second quarter. The Niners are in Minnesota territory at the Minnesota 30-yard line with a first and ten.

Good first quarter of play for our favorite football team so far. Can they keep it up? Let's find out!
