Defense? What is this "defense" of which you speak?
The Vikings took their opening drive of the game and marched 80 yards downfield, scoring on a 19-yard run by Adrian Peterson.
The Saints responded with a touchdown drive of their own that culminated with a 38-yard screen pass from Drew Brees to Pierre Thomas.
Not to be outdone, the Vikings marched down the field again, putting another touchdown on the board with a 5-yard Favre to Rice touchdown pass. That score gives us our current count of 14-7.
The last play of the first quarter for the Saints was a punt, and the Vikings are taking over at their own 15.
Come join us for all the action!
